After a brilliant first day at the County Show, Staffordshire Young Farmers held their Male and Female Tug of War in the Main Ring on Wednesday evening. A great crowd of supporters from across the County and other clubs also turned out in force in the Grandstand to watch a hard fought competition. Many of the teams have been training three times a week since before Christmas and their hard work and efforts paid off.
Following a great standard of pulling, in hard ground conditions, Waterhouses YFC men’s team beat Eccleshall YFC to the 1st place position. Eccleshall YFC were the runners-up and Stone YFC took 3rd.
For the ladies teams, Stone YFC stormed to victory coming in first place. The results ended with Stone YFC taking home the silverware on the night, Eccleshall YFC in 2nd place and Uttoxeter JNFU in 3rd place.
The 1st and 2nd placed teams from each competition will now go forward to the West Midlands Round of the competition at The Three Counties Show, Malvern on Sunday 17th June.
