3 Members of 1MWD regiment attended AMS Basketball inter-units held at Aldershot Garrison on the 4-5 July 18. The ladies joined together with two others players within the AMS to create an amalgamated team. The team consisted of Pte Jessica Moon, Pte Sian Hayes and Pte Chloe Jones from 1MWD, Cpl Tamani from RAMC and Cpl Lesjuan from RAMC. On the first day, the players took part in a morning of training with the AMS coach to prepare themselves for a 3v3 mini tournament which would take place in the afternoon. The tournament was a success with 1 MWD winning overall. The next day was the inter-unit competition where 1 MWD would compete against the other AMS female teams. The first game was against our biggest competitors, 1 Medical regiment which we narrowly won 6-4 despite them having an Army player. We then went on to play 5 Medical regiment which we won 15-4. Their last competitors were 4 Medical regiment with the final score being 32-8 to 1MWD. Despite winning all their games, a final took place between 1MWD and 1Med. Having no substitutes throughout the whole competition, 1MWD were anxious about playing the final lasting 20 minutes as they had no fresh legs. Every player gave 100% effort and were determined to win having come so far. On the final whistle the score sat at a close 12-8 with 1 MWD winning with just two baskets in it. 1MWD were crowned winners of the AMS female inter-unit Basketball and Pte Moon was awarded most valuable player of the competition. The girls were proud of their performance and are already looking forward to future upcoming events with AMS and are hoping to represent the regiment in Basketball again in the future.
Well done girls! An amazing achievement all round 🏀 #basketball #armysports #armygirls #ravc #1mwd #ravc100 #basketballtime
