DAVID Paradice, Scone local, said although he should be playing in the little league, he has found himself in a Scone polo team playing the final of the Queen’s Cup, scheduled to be played at 3pm London time, midnight tonight our time.
“It’s like I should actually be playing in the little league, in the under 13’s, but I’m not I’m playing with all the big guys and I’m really out of my depth, but anyway it’s fun,” laughed David.
“I’m over here doing work for a few weeks and it turned out that a team became available, so James Harper who plays for Ellerston and James Beim said they needed someone, so I said sure why not,” he said.
“James Harper put together a string of horses for us over here,” David Paradice said.
The Scone team has lost two games, won four and is now set to play Park Place.
“Park Place is backed by a Russian, and they are playing against Scone in the UK in the final,
“Everyone is fairly amused with how it has all panned out…
“I have a passion for work and a passion for polo and it just worked out that while I am over here for a few weeks working, I could also play some polo,
The Scone team consists of James Harper, James Beim, Nicolas Pieres and David Paradice.
