The Army's women cricketers have won the first of this season's Inter-Services fixtures, after beating the RAF by 10 wickets in Uxbridge.

The Army won the toss and elected to field at the Air Force's Vine Lane cricket ground, restricting their opponents, to just 101 all out.

The RAF, which was only able to field 10 players, batted 36 of its 40 overs.

 

In reply, Army openers  Mel Vaggers and Kim Healey made short work of the RAF attack, polishing off the required runs in just 45 minutes, off 10 overs. 

Kim Healey, playing her first ever Army match, top scored with 55.

The RAF will play Inter-Services champions the Royal Navy in the second match at Vine Lane on Wednesday.
