    Tommy Beresford- Equus

     

    “Equus is a team that is always very competitive. I was lucky to play with them in 2013 where we also won the Silver and Gold Cup. This year we set up a very competitive and effective system with Ale (Muzzio) and Rocho (Torreguitar).  We had a very tough semifinal and today we had another really hard game that we achieved to guide it in our favour in the sixth chukker after battling all the game”.

    "We came from a very difficult semifinal and we knew that today's match was going to be hard too. It's a final and they're never easy. They played very well and battled hard till the very end.

    The balance is really positive because the Gold Cup was very even, with many teams with chances to reach the final and that makes us value more the victory”.
