Two current Y13 students at Bolton School, Harry Bentham and James Blenkinship, along with two students who left last summer, Daniel Bentham and Tom Simpson, joined the GB U19 water polo squad last week for the LEN European Championships’ Qualification Tournament held in Malta.

The squad was managed by Bolton School water polo coach Andy McGinty.

They played three matches, losing to a strong Netherlands team 20-5, narrowly losing out to Malta 9-6 and beating Finland 15-6.

Coach Mr McGinty said: "The team performed well across the tournament and were disappointed with the Malta result.

"Their preparation included a training camp with the German national team in Hannover and a warm up tournament in Slovakia playing Slovakia, Czech Republic and Ukraine as well as club teams from Hungary and Greece."
