An entry of 80 lambs were forward in three age classes (0-7, 8-11, 12-16) and were ably judged by Steven Wilson, of Wilson Butchers Ltd, Corby Hill, Carlisle.

The first 3 prize lambs went forward for the overall championship for which the Taylor family from Englishtown donated a new trophy in memory of the late Hugh Taylor who was a past Chairman of the Market.

The sale of the lambs was buoyant and all the regular buyers remained within the ring to help support the youngsters.

The overall championship was awarded to the winner of the 0 – 7 age group and was a 43 kilo Beltex x Lamb from Thomas Hope, Albierigg, Canonbie which realised £88 (204.6p kilo) and was purchased by Wm Kirkup, Butchers, Longtown. First prize in the 8 – 11 yr olds was Ian Carlisle, Nether Dargavel, Collin for a Texel x Lamb scaling 46 kilo and realising £76 (165.2p kilo), also to Wm Kirkup. First prize 12 – 16 yr olds was Thomas Illingworth, Howgillside, Eaglesfield, Lockerbie for a Texel x lamb scaling 49 kilo and realising £72 (146.9p kilo) to Border Meats, Lockerbie.
