The Queen’s Gurkha Engineers Intake Rising Cup is an annual seven-a-side football tournament held at Invicta Park Barracks, Maidstone. Organised by Gurkha Intake 07 this event has run every year since 2012.
The main objective is to provide an opportunity for players to show their footballing skills and to select potential players for the future Nepal Cup QGE teams.
This year there were 15 teams taking part including one veteran team and one British Army (non Gurkha) team.
With an excellent performance, Gurkha Intake 09 lifted the trophy with Gurkha Intake 07 securing second position. Money raised from the event was donated to the Pahar Trust which helps improve education and health services for remote communities in Nepal.
