The Finals match on Saturday 3rd September saw Laurent-Perrier and MBNA battle it out on the pitch, it was close with Laurent-Perrier pushing into the lead in the final chukka. The victorious team were joined by the crowds to be presented with the Roodee Challenge Cup by MBNA’s Commercial and Payments executive, Michael Donald.

Despite the weather crowds of people came down to cheer on the teams, with little ones making the most of the free activities available. Additional cover was introduced into the general admission area, so that spectators could shelter from the elements.
