The 89th Annual Ploughing Match
The 89th Annual Ploughing Match was held at Silverdale, Yockleton by kind invitation of Milton Jones and Family, The Hemmings Family, Myles Thomas & Family and The Bowdler Family on Saturday 17 th September.
The weather was perfect, even though the ground was a little hard we had some excellent ploughing done.
Unfortunately, our Tractor pulling was unable to go ahead due to not getting enough pullers on the day and our `Have a Go` at Horse Ploughing sadly didn’t go ahead due to transport issues, let`s hope we can try and have it again at our 90 th Match next year. BBC Radio Shropshire’s Ryan Kennedy joined us and had a go at Tractor Ploughing, a Big Thank you to Richard from Battlefield Tractors for showing Ryan how to plough on the day. Our Sheep Dog Trials were back this year and were a great attraction to watch.
A Big Thankyou to all of the Cruckton Committee, Judges & Stewards, Sponsors, Agricultural Machinery Companies, Trade stands & the general public, who all came & supported the match. Also, to all our Advertisers in the Match day Programme.
Lastly, I would like to thank all our Tractor Ploughmen/Women & 4 Horse Teams who put on a great exhibition of how ploughing should be done. Thank you all for making it a great day & a very successful match.
