RLC Manager Credits 'Outstanding' Woolwich Cup Opponents

Royal Logistic Corps' head coach was full of praise for Royal Army Physical Training Corps after his side beat them in the quarter-final.

Royal Logistic Corps (RLC) head coach Captain Lee Davies has praised Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC) after his side beat them 3-1 in the Woolwich Cup quarter-final.

"I’m really happy with the performance but what I have to do is give credit to the PT corps," he said.

"They were outstanding.

"We haven’t played them for a few years but that is the best team that we’ve played for a long time."

In regards to the performance, the RLC manager was pleased.

"We drew with the REME last game and are missing a few players, but credit to the players who started today.

"We have got a few who are making their debuts and in the second half, it was a lot better."

Goals from Liam Shawn, Sam Malone and Connor Martin sealed a 3-1 win for RLC and put them into the final four of the competition.

One man who was key to the RLC win was Army striker Callum Wilkinson, who got two assists.

Capt Davies was pleased with his main man's performance.

"Callum has been around for a while. He’s key for the Army and the UK Armed Forces," he said.

"He got a couple of assists and he is my leader on the pitch.

"He demands a high performance from his players and if he is assisting other players to score goals, I’m happy because his contributions are always 100%."

The win meant RLC are into the semi-finals of the Woolwich Cup and Davies has his eyes on a trophy.

"We haven’t done well in the last few seasons.

"We got beat last year against the Engineers and we are not doing as well as we want to do in the league.

"This year we are in the semi-final now so we are pushing hard to pick up a trophy.

"The Woolwich Cup is big on my agenda."
