Southern Vintage ploughing match 2017 – Results & photos 1

The Southern Vintage Engine and Tractor Club wishes to thank Paul Costain for the use of the 2 fields at Colby which is greatly appreciated. There were 16 tractor outfits on the field, one tractor ploughed two plots with different drivers and thank you to Nicola and David Rawnsley for ploughing against each other. The Club would also like to thank David Hankey for coming over from North Wales to compete in our match. Again the Club would like to thank the judges for their time and patience.

Bill Galley and John Bean had two horticultural machines on the field. The orange one was a 1965 Howard 350 with a Kohler engine having had a rotavator removed and a Howard plough fitted. The green one was a 1936/37 Clifford machine with a Jap mk 5 engine fitted with a Clifford Mk 1 Ridging Plough.

The Club also thanks the Tynwald Inn for looking after us for the presentation in the evening.
