Cadets Compete To Be Crowned 'Colonel's Cup' Champions!

16 February 2020

On the 14th - 16th February 2020 Cadets from 2nd (NI) Bn ACF spent their weekend competing in the Colonel McGreeghan’s Cup Military Skills Competition, testing their military skills knowledge and competency.

The aim of the competition was for teams to compete against each other in a challenging but competitive environment to promote their teamwork and leadership skills.

Army Cadets from across the Battalion competed in challenging stands in their respective Company teams, testing their knowledge on various subjects offered within the ACF, including First Aid, Fieldcraft, Navigation, STEM, Shooting, Skill at arms and many more.

Despite the weather and best efforts of Storm Dennis, the Cadets all thoroughly enjoyed the challenges that they were set and those selected can now look forward to the Northern Ireland ACF Military Skills competition in April.


Overall results are as follows:

  • Colonel McGreeghan’s Cup – H Company
  • Runner’s Up – F Company
  • 3rd Place – G Company
  • 4th Place – E Company
  • Best First Aid – H Company
