man Mercer Ward proved he knows a thing or two about a straight
furrow when he won the All Wales Reversible Ploughing
Championship recently. He also came second in the Reversible
Class of the European Vintage Tractor Ploughing Championship.

third in the hydraulic class of the European Championships while
Jackie Moore from Bangor was fourth in the trail plough class.
Mercer said he was also looking forward to
