The Ferguson Club European T.20 Ploughing Championship 2014
On Sunday 14 September, the second European T.20 Tractor and GP Plough Championship was held at Tyn y Caeau Farm, Marcross, Vale of Glamorgan by kind permission of John Evans and family.
Weather conditions were perfect, albeit that the top 3” of the field were as dry as a bone. However, all the ploughs handled the conditions first class.
Seventeen entries were submitted from across Wales and the southern parts of England for the draw. However, two entries pulled out before the event and so 15 competitors took part on the day.
The two judges were David Bowyer (Devon) and Bill Isaac (Wilts) and the results of the championship were:
Champion – for the second year: Keith Williams (Hereford), 2nd Will John (Pembs), 3rd John S Evans (Pembs), 4th Graham L Jones (Flint), 5th Roy Jury (Devon)
International Team Wales: Will John (Pembs), John S Evans (Pembs)
Best Junior & Winner of the Ian Ferguson Shield: Sam Ritchie (Powys)
Highest Scoring Welshman: Will John (Pembs)
