3 Boldmere help Solihull to League Success

Solihull became British Water Polo League menýs champions last weekend when they defeated Manchester 7-6 in the final round of Super Five matches.

Solihull entered Division 5 of the BWPL in 2012 with a young team and gained successive promotions through the divisions finishing 3rd in their first year in Division 1 last year. This year they have stepped up further and clinched the title. They still have a relatively young squad with 7 of the 13 players used this season being 21 or under.

All of the players live in the West Midlands and play locally in the Midland Water Polo League mostly for Solihull with the addition of 3 from Boldmere and 1 from Coventry. Coventry women's team were also competing in their BWPL Super Fives finishing 4th. Sky TV filmed the weekendýs matches and will be airing two programmes of highlights in the near future - one for the men and one for the women
