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.

In a thrilling final, the Gunners prevailed over REME to win the Surridge Trophy by 30 runs. On the way, the Guns overcame their old rivals, the Sappers, in a semi-final that was the scene of massive batting and missed opportunities.
A great day for Gunner Cricket and a great showcase for Army's Inter Corp Cricket. Once again, all thanks are due to Colonel Peter Sharland and his team for the tremendous work that goes into this fantastic festival of cricket.
More pictures and match reports will follow.
A blustery day that saw sight screens topple, covers blown off the pitch and Govy knocking sixes like they were going out of fashion, scoring 101 (and, allegedly, taking out a passing car on the road outside the ground). The Gunner innings ended with 209 runs scored and, despite a few scares when RLC really got going, RACC made it safely home with 54 runs to spare.
There was a tense wait for the result of the AGC v RSigs game as the outcome would be critical to a Gunner place in tomorrow's Cup semi-finals. An extended interval between innings, due to rain, didn't help the nerves, but Blandford Camp's finest won the day and we'll now meet our 'old friends', the Sappers in the semi.
The Gunners won both of their opening matches on Day 1 of the Surridge Inter Corps Twenty20 competition at Larkhill. In the opening match, against Intelligence Corps, it was a very close game in which the middle order of both sides imploded. However, outstanding bowling, by Parveen Kumar, proved decisive. His figures of 4-1-8-5 were crucial in securing the Gunners a 17 run win and his place on the Honours Board.
