The Magherafelt Ploughing Society’s recent match was held at Kilcronaghan, Tobermore attracting competitors from across the province and from as far away as Dundalk.
Torrential rain elsewhere in the country meant that the availability of a dry field was an opportunity not to be missed – especially for a County Down man in the form of David Gill who carefully plotted his way to the top place and taking the championship of the field in what was a fantastic day for competitors and spectators alike.
The society would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the judging that was undertaken by Messrs S Bowman, R Brown, Wm Hood, Wm King & Wm Purcell and the results were as follows:-
12” for the Ernest A Caldwell Cup - 1 David Gill; 2 Rodney Crawford; 3 Allen McAnally; 4 = Brian O’Neill & Conor McKeown
Reversible for the F W Henderson Cup - 1 Adrian Jamison; 2 David Wright; 3 James Coulter

Vintage Class 2 (Novice) for the Arthur Campbell Cup - 1 Sam Loughrey; 2 Jack Moore; 3 Malcolm Finney; 4 William McCracken
