2020 Sixes Grantham

Womens Sixes Success in Grantham

The 2020 Army Sixes has concluded and went extremely well in Grantham this week.

The overall winners of the tournament were 4 Regiment RA who beat 8 Trg Bn REME in the final. 34 Field Hospital won the Plate beating HQ 1 Div in the final.

Despite the inclement weather the moral of the teams was first class.

Tournament organiser Major Mark Normanton said
"Those who visited enjoyed the occasion especially from the CoC which was brilliant to see, they all annotated that the event was outstanding and they will all enter their units into future events.

"The real plus was the football itself and the attitude of the players, another bonus was that every team attended with coaching staff for the first time ever. We had senior staff officers playing, supporting the junior ranks from their 2 Star HQ, Phase Two Trainees (they even made it to the final), Reservists and Regulars underlining that the tournament reached out to all aspects of the Army".

"I also take this opportunity to thank the Officials who were outstanding throughout and really helped mentor those playing for the first time."
