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.
