Each tractor driver received a plaque sponsored by Silver Fox Tractor Spares.

Organisers Henry Castle and Don Sapsford, who are local members of the Ferguson Club, thanked the three Society of Ploughmen judges, who awarded points for each ploughed area and Andrew Long for providing the land.

Those who took part included the Ford Fordson Association.

Mr Castle said: “The conditions were perfect because we had rain a fortnight before and there was just enough moisture.
