Glarryford Young Farmers are ready to start their winter programme hot on the heels of a successful summer of events which began with a sports night.

Many neighbouring clubs joined in this year’s sports night with Randalstown YFC winning both the boys’ and girls’ football competitions while Glarryford YFC were first in the tug of war. Many families from the community attended and were entertained with kids races, bouncy castles, digger challenges and a barbecue.
