Three Old Boys and two current Bolton School students played in a set of international water polo matches held in Manchester during the first weekend in May.

Current Year 11 student Thomas Yates was on the Great Britain U17 Junior Men’s team for the European Championships Qualification Tournament, which saw Great Britain face France, Israel and Slokavia across three days of matches. Old Boy Lewis Daly was the team’s Assistant Coach and Boys’ Division Head of Science Dr Yates was the Team Manager.

The three Great Britain U17s matches are available to watch again on the Water Polo England YouTube channel via the following links: first match vs Israel, second match vs Slovakia, third match vs France. An an interview with Lewis ahead of the first U17s match can also be seen here.

The Saturday also included two exhibition matches, one involving Sixth Form student Thea Simpson and the other featuring three Old Boys. Thea played for the Great Britain U19 womens team against their U17 counterparts, and her match can be viewed here. Aaron Winstanley, who now teaches at the Junior Boys’ School, joined Lewis in representing England, while Ed Grundy captained the Scotland team for a Senior water polo international in which England was ultimately victorious with a score of 16-7. The match can be watched again here.
