Army Air Corps v Intelligence Corps

Army FA, Woolwich Cup Quarter Final
Army Air Corps 8 Intelligence Corps 1 (att 25)

The Woolwich Cup is a sort of league cup competition for teams taking part in the Army Football Association's two-division Massey Trophy competition.

Such a win for division two Army Air Corps, over first division opponents, might appear a surprise, but a glance at the current league tables shows a home win was always likely. AAC went ahead in the opening seconds, and were two up after three minutes.

Surprisingly, despite plenty of chances, they failed to add more goals before half time. They found their range in the second half though, racking up six more goals. Intelligence Corps' solitary goal was an 85th minute penalty, by which time they'd conceded seven of the eight.

Not all Army games are open to spectators, but AAC play at Tidworth Oval, a lovely venue with a terrific old-fashioned stand. Crucially the ground, which also caters for athletics, is outside the Wiltshire base, so getting in to watch the game wasn't a problem.
