Old Boy Ed Scott Interviewed by BBC Ahead of Olympics

Thursday, 19 January 2012

Listen to an interview with Old Boy and Goalkeeper for the British Men's Water Polo Team, Ed Scott, on the BBC website:


23-year-old medical student Ed was introduced to the sport at Bolton School and is now first choice Goalkeeper for the Great Britain Water Polo squad.  The GB team will take part in the London 2012 Olympic Games after an absence of British Water Polo from the Olympics for 56 years.

Ed said: "Preparations are going well and we're looking to put in some big performances in London. We know we are not among the favourites but with a home crowd behind us, then hopefully we can pull off a shock or two."

Ed is not the only one whose early experiences of Water Polo at Bolton School have led to a place in the national squad. Rick Lawlor is also a member of the current squad and Rob Rae, Andrew Crawford, and Charles Booth have all held places in the team.
