This couldn’t have been possible without producers Jimmy and Judy King and Melissa McCombe to whom all at the club are extremely thankful.

Thanks must also go to sound man Peter Stewart and finally, the club would like to express thanks to all of the family and friends that gave support on the night. 

The following weekend saw the YFCU AGM & Conference with Glarryford reaping more awards.

Congratulations must go to Peter Alexander who gained 2nd place in Top Club Leader in Northern Ireland and Ruth McCloy who gained 2nd place in Top Treasurer in Northern Ireland! The club is also extremely pleased to announce that they are now also ‘Club of The Year’ in Northern Ireland. This is an immense achievement which couldn’t have been possible without the hard work from each individual club member.
