RA Cup

Published in News on 07 Jun 2018

Eleven teams, all Army, gathered at Tidworth Polo Club at the end of May for the fifth annual RA Cup.
The standard in the three divisions was consistently high and whilst all teams played some excellent polo mention must be made of the RLC A Team who put 5 goals past their opponents in their 2two chukka final and Capt James Wilson -1 deservedly won the MVP for the tournament.
The H4H Phoenix Team, of wounded personnel, very nearly pulled off victory but conceded a goal in the dying seconds to come second in their division against a new team from the Army Medical Services.
A special MVP for RA players was won by Gnr Dale Gordon King’s TP RHA, who hit some excellent backhands – one of which went 70 yards!
The winners of the main RA Cup were the Light Dragoons who travelled down from Catterick to participate for the first time led by Rishi Ahluwalia just back from operations in Afghanistan.
Roll on the TEAM ARMY Captains’ & Subalterns’ Trophy on the 21st and 22nd July also at TPC.
