The 88th Annual Cruckton Ploughing Match
The 88th Annual Ploughing Match was held at Kinton Business Park, Kinton, Nesscliffe by kind invitation of the Warner & Suckley Families. We had a perfect day from start to finish on Saturday 18th September. After our last match was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid 19, our hosts have been so accommodating and sorted another fabulous site for the match to go ahead this year.
The weather conditions were perfect and we all enjoyed watching some great ploughing, taking place throughout the day.
A Big Thankyou to all of the Cruckton Committee, Judges & Stewards, Sponsors, Agricultural Machinery Companies, Trade stands, Andrew Goddard & his team with his Threshing Box, BBC Ryan Kennedy for coming along and doing the challenge we set, Nesscliffe YFC for all there help & doing the bar and the general public, who all came & supported the match.
Lastly, I would like to thank our 92 Tractor Ploughmen/Women & 5 Horse Teams who put on a great exhibition of how ploughing should be done.. Thankyou all for making it a great day & a very successful match.
