TEAMS from the Fife and Kinross district had plenty to celebrated when three of the four tug-of-war teams forward qualified for the national final on home soil at West Fife Show. 

A strong entry of six teams in each of the gents’ and ladies’ sections provided some tough competition as they pulled in the sun, rain, wind and thunder.

It was a pull-off between to Fife and Kinross teams in the ladies’ final, but it was the blue team that edged the lead over the red team. Brechin YFC finished in third place having won their last pull against Forfar JAC, and all four teams will next compete at the Highland. 

Fife and Kinross’ blue team also won the gents’ section in the final against Aberfeldy JAC, and these two teams will be joined at Ingliston by Bathgate JAC.
