Penguin Kings take their first win of the season

The British League for the Penguin Kings (women's second team) continued last weekend at the Walsall baths.  

Our first match was against Bristol, one of the top teams in the League. A spirited Penguin resistance, including five goals in the 3rd quarter, was not quite enough to secure us a win.  Final score 7-12.  

Next we faced one of the most experienced teams in the League, Manchester C.  We held a narrow one-goal advantage going into the last quarter but excellent team play and an explosive 7 goal spree propelled us to a decisive 13-8 win.

On Sunday we faced our traditional rivals, the experienced Solihull team.  Again this was a closely fought game in which Penguin deservedly earned lots of man-up opportunities. However Solihull converted more of their opportunities leading to a 5-9 scoreline.

Latest men's first team British League results

Our men’s first team faced tough opposition in the penultimate weekend of the British League in Guildford.

The match against Manchester on Saturday was a real thriller. We were trailing from the start but, thanks to a six-goal haul from Attila Banhidy, we recovered from 11-9 down in the final quarter to level at 11-11. It seemed that we would share the points until Manchester claimed the winner from a man-up with just one second remaining.

Our second match on Sunday against Lancaster was an 11-14 defeat.


Glyn Berry
Nov 10, 2010, 2:15 pm

We're sad to learn that former Penguin swimmer and water polo player Glyn Berry died on Friday 5th November following a short illness. He was 64.

At a towering 6ft 8in and known as 'Big Glyn' to many, Glyn was a Welsh international who joined Penguin early in his water polo career, first as a goalkeeper then as a forward. Although he moved to Poly in 1968 he always remembered his time with Penguin fondly. He remained friends with many Penguins through the London and Middlesex Leagues.

We extend our condolences to Glyn's family.

Glyn's funeral will take place on Monday 22nd November at 1.30 pm.
Venue:  Herongate Wood,

The Penguin women's third team travelled to Basingstoke on Saturday for another British League weekend.

We brought home success by winning 7-3 against Manchester D in our first match.

Our second match against Southampton was tough at the beginning, and we found ourselves 6-2 down in the second quarter. But we didn't surrender and managed to startle the opposition by taking the game to a tight 11-11 draw.

It was a great weekend for the thirds and the coach was pleased with all our players' performance.
