A HUDDERSFIELD soldier has been making her winning mark in Army sporting circles.
Pte Cheryl Fray, 22, took part in the Army's inter-unit rounders championship - and was in the winning Queen's Royal Lancers team.
She had just returned from a stint as a medic in Iraq and joined 120 women soldiers from all over the UK in the rounders contest at Worthy Down, near Winchester, Hampshire.
The former Fartown High School pupil is a combat medical technician in the Royal Army Medical Corps and serves with 3 Close Support Medical Regiment in Catterick.
Her parents, Kym and Kenroy, still live in Huddersfield.
Cheryl jumped at the chance to take part in the rounders contest.
She said: "I was part of the high school rounders team, which was fun. When I heard the Army was holding a rounders festival I jumped at the chance. I hope I can be involved in more Army sports."
The Army holds its rounders festival annually and feels the game is good for promoting soldiers' tactical awareness, fitness and team spirit.
The game dates back to the early 1800s.
