The UK polocrosse teams took on Ireland in a series of four test matches last weekend (24-25 July) at Celyn Polocrosse Club, near Chester.

The UK ladies had a very successful weekend, beating the Irish women twice, to win their test match series 2:0.

They won the first test match 28 goals to 11 and the second, 28 to 16.

Unfortunately the UK men could not repeat this feat and lost their series 2:0 to a very strong Irish side.

They went down in the first test by 19 goals to 28 and then by 20 goals to 30 in the second.

All four matches were filmed by Country Channel TV and will be shown on Sky Sports and the Country Channel in October.

Broadcast dates are still to be finalised.
