bowling in the middle overs restricted the REME to 123 off their 20 overs. Captain Bowden was the pick of the bowlers with best bowling figure all week with 6 wickets for just 21 runs. The RAC struggled to reply with the bat and failed to maintain any partnerships. Economical bowling and exceptional fielding meant the RAC fell 35 runs short in the allotted

20 overs ending up second place in the plate competition. After the main competition final between the Infantry and RLC (Infantry won by 3 wickets), all four teams in the finals were presented with whisky glasses from Lt Col (Retd) S J A Lloyd MBE. Despite the initial losses in the main tournament, everybody in the squad enjoyed the week and

the team really bonded and ended up a tight unit. The standard was exceptionally high and played in the right spirit all tournament. The squad looks forward to pre-season training in Cyprus in April 2017. Any budding Cricketers within the Regiment should speak to Tpr Redford, D Squadron.

Cricket at Mundford - The Annual Duel Between HCMR Officers’ and WOs’ and NCOs’ Messes A feverish atmosphere was brought to a climax by the contest held at the Mundford cricket ground in early July. The Regimental Adjutant agreed to umpire the match. The officers batted first and achieved only an average score. The Warrant Officers team, led by the RQMC bowled well; the RQ then put the officers attack to the sword as he carved the ball to all parts of the ground. The pictures tell the story.

Surely not another 4 runs ...
