14 Regt v 16 Regt 2013

Posted by Admin

An excellent end to a great 2 days of cricket. A thrilling final in which 14 Regt defeated last year's champions, 16 Regt, by 7 wickets, with 3 balls to spare. 14 Regt won the toss and invited 16 Regt to bat; they managed 142-6 on a pitch made for batting and must have known there might not be enough runs on the board to retain the cup. In the event, it went to the last over and a boundary secured the win for the Larkhill Lads.

A few thanks: Tim for organising the competition and 3 tons, Colonel Peter Salisbury for his support and presentation of trophy at the end, to the five teams from 12, 14, 16, 19 and 32 who supported the event, to Ben and David for excellent pitches, to Gnr Graham Wiseman for entering a team of 8 from 12 RA and being the only team to beat the ultimate champions. Finally, to all the players who played multiple games of cricket in the spirit of cricket. The overall winner is the Royal Regiment.
