Three Team Ipswich Water Polo girls were part of the winning side at the ASA National Age Group Water Polo Club Championships (U15) at the Manchester Aquatics Centre at the weekend.

Poppy Mayall, Meg Wall-Peters and Eve Poole all played leading roles for their second call club, London Otter, in the team’s impressive display at the championship, which included a 21-1 thrashing of last year’s victorious champions the City of Manchester.

The Ipswich girls racked up 45 of Otter’s 83-goal haul in the tournament, with Poppy scoring 17, Eve 15 and Meg 13.

They were also three of the five Otter players who were in the contest’s top 10 scorers.

In the final, Otter came up against City of Liverpool who put in a strong second half performance.
