The Guns topped Group C, at Deepcut, with wins over Army Air Corps and Royal Logistics Corps.

Game 1, against AAC, saw a 4 wicket haul by Govender for only 13 runs. Polius, Hudson and Malec shared the other 4 wickets as AAC crumbled to 99-8. In reply, Cilliers (21*) and Cooksey (47*) needed only 14 overs to overtake AAC, after Logan had taken 3 of the top order for only 4 runs, with 6 wickets to spare.

Game 2, against home side RLC, saw Skipper Hudson and Govender virtually seal it with a fast hitting 74 and 51, respectively. The innings ended at 184--5 which looked good enough and was. Hudson showed his bowling skills, as did Malec, as they took 3 wickets each; Burwell took 2 more and, at stumps, RLC fell 25 short of a win.
