Last month saw a young player called Jimbo Fewster coming crashing into high goal polo with his matte red Armis Polo Helmet. Jimbo who is based out of Kirtlington polo club made heads turn this year in the gold cup, playing with King Power Foxes who stormed to victory over El Remanso polo team in the final.
