Last week was a humbling sporting week for the Royal Yorkshire Regiment. In two rounds of the ‘War of the Roses’, on the Rugby Pitch and in the boxing ring, our friends from the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment won two nil. To close the week our Regimental Secretary had the privilege of presenting the Regimental Rugby Union Trophy.

You can see here the two sides post match. In the first round of the ‘War of the Roses’ the 1 LANCS RFC defeated our 2nd Battalion team in the Inter Unit NAV 9s 18-12.

In round two the 1 LANCS boxing team defeated our 1st Battalion Team 7 – 2 in the final of the Army Boxing Championships. Well done to everyone who got into the ring and the excellent teams that have supported getting them to such a significant boxing final.

Finally, you can see our Regt Sec presenting the Regt Rugby Union Trophy to The captain of Leeds Tykes, Adam Brown, at Headingly on Saturday. This trophy is competed for by the Yorkshire teams in National League 2 North. This in the same week that Leeds Utd won the football equivalent for those teams in the Championship. That trophy will be presented at the start of next season.

Well done to the Lions of England and thank you to our friends for such excellent sporting competition. Fortune Favours the Brave.

Thank you to @MJP Media for the excellent boxing coverage.
