RLC Cricket wins the double

The RLC Cricket team has been crowned double Corps champions winning both the The Inter Corps T20 competition and The 50 over Power Cup this season.

The T20 final was especially impressive as it started badly with skipper Capt Edwards breaking his thumb just before the game – that it barely had an impact is a reflection of the ethos, attitude and depth of the squad.

A tight bowling performance from The RLC saw REME finish on 172 for 5. In reply, the top three started well, reaching 97 for 1 off 11 overs – with a half century for LCpl Tottle.

The RLC surpassed the REME score for an eight wicket win – led by Pte Carmichael with a powerful half century.

The team has now won the Inter Corps T20 for three years running, an outstanding achievement.

Less than 12 hours later, it was back to the Army Cricket Ground for the Power Cup Final v Royal
Engineers. The RLC batted first and reached 259 all out and then bowled The Sappers all out for 80 achieving a 179 run win.

Winning both Inter Corps cricket competitions has not been achieved by any Corp for over a decade.

On Wednesday 14 October, The RLC Individual and Team Orienteering Championships took place on Mytchett Training Area. 115 competitors from 27 units took on a score event in which individuals had one hour to reach as many of the 24 checkpoints as possible. The four team members who score the highest points count towards the team result, where teams tie on points, the team with the fastest time to score those points wins.

Congratulations to all who were involved and well done to 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood who were the champion male team, 162 Regiment RLC who were the champion female team and Army Drivers Northern Ireland (152 Regiment RLC) the champion Reserve team.
