With numerous teams in each age category attending the group debating the club had success with two teams making it through to the Northern Ireland finals.

The 2015 choir festival took place in December and a lot of time and effort went into this by all the members who took part in the festival singing Fight Song, Blessed Be Your Name and Oh My Love.

All the members of Derg Valley YFC had a great night and thoroughly enjoyed watching the other clubs take part too.

The club also has a keen interest for table quizzes and attended many throughout the county and is looking forward to Tyrone YFC’s which is being held the club’s hall later in the month.

One of Derg Valley YFC’s proudest moments was at Tyrone YFC’s county dinner where along with numerous members winning great prizes Derg Valley YFC won Tyrone’s Super Club title. The award is a reward for all the club members dedication and hard work.

The winter season also saw Derg Valley YFC reveal their new club jackets. The club would like to thank all the sponsors who helped to make the jackets possible.

This month club member Robert Keatley was chosen to attend the Oxford Farming Conference. He found it very informative.

Derg Valley YFC are also looking forward to the spring/summer season when the club will celebrate its 70th anniversary in the Silver Birch Hotel, Omagh on March 27th.
