THE prestigious YFCU Tug of War competition returned to Balmoral Show with three categories, Novice, Advanced and Ladies.
The Novice section saw a large number of entries this year with 16 teams vying for the title. The competition was close fought right from the heat stages. Mountnorris YFC was the eventual winner, beating Lisnamurrican YFC in the final.
Derg Valley YFC and Randalstown YFC battled it out in the final round of the Advanced section, with Derg Valley YFC proving its strength to take the win.
In the Ladies competition, Lisnamurrican YFC took first place, beating Armagh Ladies (Collone YFC/Mountnorris YFC/Newtown-hamilton YFC) in the final pull.
The YFCU would like to thank everyone who helped with the Tug of War competition, including Barrie Barr for coordinating
and refereeing, in addition to referees Robert Sloan, Stuart Mills and Hugh McFetridge.
