Southern Vintage Ploughing Match

The Southern Vintage Engine and Tractor Club was formed in the Autumn of 1984 with the intentions of restoring vintage engines, tractors and bygones, the members have a chance to show off their exhibits with our annual “Mad Sunday Vintage Show”, which first took place on Sunday 2nd June 1985.

On the second Thursday of each month we hold our monthly meeting at the Rushen United Football Club House, with perhaps a video or slides being shown afterwards. Every Autumn we hold our Vintage Ploughing Match which is open to all, members and non-members alike, to compete for various cups and trophies.
