‘we’ll beat any price’
ARMY’S women’s touch football team changed the
guard at the South Australian interservice touch foot-
ball championships at RAAF Base Edinburgh from
Army won the women’s title by beating defending
champion Air Force in two games, 1-0 and 3-2.
A reduced operational tempo meant an increased
involvement from Army units in South Australia, with
9 Fd Sqn from 1CER joining the infantrymen from
7RAR, along with 16ALR from Woodside.
Tournament coordinator Brice Mitchell said it was
good to finally have such a large involvement from
Army, with plenty of talent available to selectors.
“This allowed Army to field two men’s teams and
one women’s team, with players from all three sides
selected for Southern States teams attending ADF
touch association nationals from September16-19,” Mr
Air Force, which last year ended 10 years of domi-
nation by APS teams, went through this year’s tourna-
It beat Army A 5-3, APS 7-3 and Army B 6-2.
On day one, nine inter-unit teams competed for
the 4th Military District trophy, including five Air
Force units, the Defence Science and Technology
Organisation and three Army units.
Joint Electronic Warfare Operational Support Unit
beat 16ALR side 3-2 in the final.
On day two, four men’s teams, and two women’s
teams competed in the interservice championship.
Best players for Army men were: Pte Gino
Geracitano (9CSSB), Sgt Nathan Mitchell (1CER),
Gnr Ben Howard (16ALR) and LCpl Nicholas
Braithwaite (1CER). Best for the women’s side
Cpl Eliza Oates (16ALR) and OCdt Claire Oliveri
(Melbourne University Regiment).

Pitch for Nationals
Runner-up: The 16ALR team from Woodside.
WITH the Australian Services
Cricket Association (ASCA)
showing some fine form at
a Twenty20 tournament in
August, Army has reason for
confidence going into the ADF
National titles in Canberra in
Army was knocked out by the
Royal Malaysian Air Force in the
semi-finals of the International
Defence Cricket Challenge in
Canberra last November, so is not
too far off the pace.
The ASCA team also just
played in Brisbane for the
International Cricket Council
Asia-Pacific Rising Stars Trophy
from August 12-17.
The team was captained by
top order batsman and off-spinner
Sgt Ian Roberts and included
seven other Army players, Maj
Nic Griffith, Sig Beau Wright, Sgt
Don Mander, Cpl Corey Baker,
Sgt Martin Blackman, Tpr Craig
Holmes and Sgt Mark Brown.
“This was probably the best
ASCA side that has been selected
for some years. Tpr Holmes was
as good as any of our opposition
in the field,” Sgt Roberts said.
“Although we came fourth,
we were far from being disgraced
by what was some very good
One of the other teams was
Papua New Guinea, which is
ranked 19th in the world and used
the tournament as a warm-up for
its T20 World Cup Qualifier in
Dubai later this year.
The Australian Indigenous
development squad also joined a
team from the East Asia/Pacific
region, which consisted of players
from Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, PNG
ASCA fell only 38 runs short
against eventual winner PNG,
despite chasing a big total.
Then it came out blazing
against the highly regarded
Australian Indigenous Team, first
restricting them to only 104 runs
from their 20 overs, then making
easy work of the chase.
Unfortunately, the result was
reversed against the same team in
the play-off with third spot.
The Australian Indigenous
Team made 141.
In reply, ASCA lost two
quick wickets before Cpl Adam
Bosworth and Sgt Roberts came
together and made a 64-run stand.
When Cpl Bosworth fell for
43, LAC Kaleb Tymko belted 25
from 11 balls, which left ASCA
needing 24 runs in 24 balls to
Sgt Roberts made 40 but
ASCA lost its final seven wickets
for only 11 runs to lose by nine.
The men’s national triservice
competition will be held from
November 19-27, and for the
first time it is hoped to also run a
Representative combined ser-
vices (male and female) matches
will be held November 27-30.
