The St Regis International Cup at Cowdray Park 2012

Luke Tomlinson lead England to a narrow win against USA at the annual St. Regis Cup final at Cowdray Park in May – the first of the UK’s international test matches this year, and the first match between USA and England on English soil for 15 years.

The match ended 11 -10.5 after a dramatic finish, which saw England defend a 60-yard penalty attempt in the dying seconds of the match.

The Polo Blog was there and managed to snap a couple of pictures of the action on the field.
