Adjutant General's Corps retains the Edwards Cup as Wright scores a hat-trick

Watch: The Adjutant General's Corps win their third consecutive Edwards Cup at the Army Inter Corps Football Finals.

The Adjutant General's Corps have won the Edwards Cup at the Army Inter Corps Football finals after defeating the Royal Logistics Corps 4-2 in a tightly contested match in Cirencester. 

A hat-trick from Army football veteran Kristina Wright helped the AGC claw their way back into contention after trailing the RLC throughout the game. 

An early goal by Jodie Imms allowed the RLC to dictate the narrative of the game from the outset with the AGC struggling to find their footing with several missed opportunities.

It was a terrific header by Courtney Forrest-Blake that levelled the scoreboard moments before half time that finally put the home side on equal footing, with the scoreboard sitting at 1-1.

The RLC returned in the second half as they started in the first, after Roxy Williams fired her shot into the back of the net to reclaim the lead for the RLC. 

But it was Army football veteran Kristie Wright who began to make an impact on the game, levelling the scoreboard when the RLC defence had their guard down. 

After 90 minutes, the game went into extra time with the scoreboard sitting at 2-2 and Wright made the most of the opportunity, scoring a brace minutes into the extra 30. 

In her 24th year with the AGC team, Wright followed up with a stunning hat trick that would seal the victory for the AGC team. 

In their third consecutive Edwards Cup win, the AGC win 4-2 in a textbook comeback against a tough RLC side and they lift the Edwards Cup for another year.
