Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Two YFC members can keep their feet warm and dry all year round after they won new boots from The Original Muck Boot Company in our competition.

Archie Nicholls, from Witney Junior YFC in Oxfordshire, and Laura Terry, from Winksley-cum-Grantley YFC in Yorkshire, entered our competition to win the premium boots – worth up to £110 – by leaving posts on social media explaining where they would wear them.

Archie, who is 14 and a joint sports secretary at his club, will be wearing them on his family’s mixed arable, beef and sheep farm. “I’m very pleased to win,” he said, “because I’m currently borrowing a pair of my dad’s wellies!”

His winning post on Instagram got poetic:

Dreaming of winning Muck Boots

To wear on this seasons’ shoots

From the muck on the farm

To the muck in the barn

A pair of all season boots

Laura, who works as a physiotherapist during the week and helps on her family’s dairy farm at weekends, said: “I just felt that I had nothing to lose! You enter a little Facebook competition and end up better off!”

Her Facebook post said: “They’d be perfect for this weather! For work on the farm or a variety of young farmers meetings! The necessity this winter to keep your feet warm on the cold Yorkshire hills!”

The new boots get 2019 off to a perfect start for Archie and Laura, who are both looking forward to a fantastic YFC year.

Archie said: “The highlight for us every year is our County Rally.”

Laura said: “Our club is hosting our District Rally this year so I’m looking forward to all our hard work paying off. We’ve also got a good club programme this year so there will be lots of good meetings.”

The Original Muck Boot Company story began in 1999 as they set out to create a boot with the sole purpose of enabling those who live, work and play in the most challenging conditions to perform at their highest level, undeterred by the elements.

The Original Muck Boot Company make premium products born from necessity, not luxury. Every boot in the line keeps you in your comfort zone with 100% waterproof quality. Waterproof, weather-proof, whatever-proof. The Original Muck Boot Company puts proof in every pair!
