Missing "Mackeson Trophy"
With the Home Nations anxious to resume the Water Polo International event the hunt is on for the trophy which was used previously. "The Mackeson Trophy" was competed for from 1962 to 1971 then from 1985 to 1997. England won the event in 1997 but it is not certain when trophy was last presented.. The rough photo below gives an idea of the appearance of the trophy. Quality is not good as it was extracted from a small team photograph. Any information to England Water Polo.
