Army Celebrate Inter-Services Cricket Victory

The Army and RAF have been doing battle to decide the 2018 inter-services cricket festival champions at Vine Lane.

The Army and RAF have been doing battle to decide the 2018 inter-services cricket festival champions at Vine Lane.

But tonight the Army are celebrating a victory.

They beat the RAF by four wickets today at Vine Lane.

The day began with a disappointing score of 143 all-out for the RAF,  and despite a slow start, the Army closed out for the win.

 

Captain of the Army team, Corporal J Boynton, was extremely pleased with the result:

 "Especially after the loss in June, it feels unbelievable to be honest. We've been unbeaten in all the Over 50 competitions so we've done really really well".

However it was disappointment for RAF Captain Corporal Adam Fisher:

"We just didn't score enough runs in the first half, I think it was plain and simple, I think we played well in the second half there just wasn't enough from the first half."
