The first match of this season's Power Cup competition, against RLC, provided a finish as exciting as they come, so we will all be hoping for a similar encounter with The Sappers when the second Power Cup match is played at the Sharp Ground Larkhill, on Wednesday, 28 May, commencing 11:00.

A disappointing finish to the tournament as the Gunners lose out to the worthy winners, Infantry. It was, without doubt, the hardest game that RACC had to face in three days of thoroughly enjoyable and competitive cricket. A noisy and excited Infantry support kept up a roar of support for their team, throughout the match, adding to the atmosphere. An 8 wicket defeat sounds severe and, all things considered, it accurately represented the course of play as the Gunners just didn't get firing on all cylinders. But then, there's always next year.

In a closely fought match, Gunner bowling ultimately proved too much for RSigs. At stumps, only 17 runs separated the teams and this was due to tight bowling and even tighter fielding. The Gunners are now in the final, here at ACA Aldershot, and will meet either Infantry or RLC in the final

A very tight game between RE and Inf decided our opposition for tomorrow's semi final. Despite winning, the Sappers' overall run rate was just not good enough to see them through. Consequently, we meet RSigs in the semi final at 10:00 on the Upper Ground. The second semi final is between Infantry and RLC, starting at 13:10.

A resounding win, by 7 wickets, launches the Gunners into tomorrow's semi final at ACA Aldershot. Only 12 overs were required to chase down the AGC total, Adam Cooksey scoring the winning run. An over by over update is available on the Gunner Cricket Facebook page for every Gunner match in this tournament. Tomorrow's semi final opposition and match time will be posted as soon as it's known, but the remainder of today's games suggest that it is likely to be either RLC or RE. However, this is Twenty20 cricket, so who can tell?
