Competitions Day 2018

Following a highly successful Competitions Day at St Ives, Launceston YFC were announced as well deserved overall winners at the county event. Our cookery winners Amy Trehane, Avril Trehane and Gemma Thomas now go straight through to represent Cornwall at the National final. Both Launceston YFC's men's and ladies tug of war teams achieved 1st place and along with stock judgers Holly Yelland and Matthew Halls, went on to represent Cornwall in the South West Area round at Hartpury College. On the day, the ladies team made a valiant effort and after the deciding pull for third and fourth place against Gloucester YFC, Launceston came away with 4th place. The Launceston men dug deep, pulled hard and made it into the final against Devon YFC. After a gripping pull at both ends, Launceston achieved 2nd place. After this brilliant result Launceston YFC men's team now go on to the National finals in Worcester to represent Cornwall. A big thank you to Kevin Frain for his ongoing committed coaching of both teams.
