TEAM Foxcote, which included both the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, beat Team CPPC 5-4 to take the Jerudong Trophy on a fabulous day at Cirencester Park Polo Club in memory of the Hon Mark Vestey.

Off the field it was just as successful with thousands raised for their royal highnesses' charities.

Centre Point, Walking with the Wounded and the Household Cavalry Foundation were the beneficiaries this year.

The yellow and red colours of the Foxcote team got off to a strong start, posting an impressive 3-0 lead at the end of the first chukka.

John Paul Clarkin opened the scoring and Foxcote were all over CPPC from the start, with HRH Prince Harry playing very well from the outset.

The advantage of familiarity certainly seemed to help the Foxcote team, with husband and wife team John Paul and Nina Clarkin and the royal brothers William and Harry reading each other's play well.

Prince Harry made it 4-0 at the beginning of the second chukka when he took full advantage of a mishit ball from Simon Keyte before galloping all the way to goal from halfway.

A subsequent foul on Prince Harry resulted in a penalty which John Paul Clarkin duly converted for a comfortable 5-0 lead at half-time.

From that point the Cirencester Park Polo Club team regrouped, became a much more cohesive unit and staged an impressive comeback. Keyte and Satnam Dhillon scored three goals between them to leave everything to play for going into the last chukka.

They pulled another goal back for 5-4 but couldn't find the equaliser The prize giving and stands were alight with the red and yellow Foxcote colours in memory of Mark Vestey, former chairman, a true gentleman, a dear friend and unbelievable supporter of the club.
