Young Farmers battled it out on the sports field in July, competing for top honours in Badminton, Touch Rugby and Rush Hockey.

In the heat of the summer sun, it was Northumberland FYFC who were crowned the winning team in Touch Rugby, with a team made up of boys and girls aged 14-16 years old from Cambo, Stamfordham and Tritlington YFCs.

They took the title after a hard-fought 4-1 victory over Warwickshire and were named the best YFC Touch Rugby team at the 2014 finals. 

“It was an exhilarating and sometimes tense competition,” said Deb Walton from Northumberland FYFC.  “The team played some outstanding rugby in fast-paced matches under hot conditions.  The three girls played in every match as they could not be substituted and were amazing.” 

Members Emily Varah and Phoebe Turnbull scored a try each to gain double points and there was some exciting passing and running from the team made up of team Captain Joseph White, Josh White, Archie Singer, Dan Lynn, Mark Statton. The winning try was scored by Joseph, who punched the air with excitement as he crossed the line.

In Badminton, the mixed doubles for members aged 14 years and under were won by Skelton YFC, with Winmarleigh YFC in second place and Culm Valley YFC in third.

The Rush Hockey finals, for members aged between 16 and 26, were won by Halstead YFC in Essex. Second place was Brandon & Wolston and Leamington Hastings YFCs from Warwickshire and in third place was Culm Valley YFC from Devon.
