Members of YFCU enjoyed a fun filled evening at Tandragee Recreation Centre, Co Armagh, for the John Bradley Challenge.

In the beautiful summer evening sunshine, thirty six teams from across Northern Ireland battled it out in a ‘Total Wipe Out’ themed event to be named champions for 2015.

The competition was enjoyed by everyone who took part and was a good teambuilding exercise for all the clubs which included team relays between, ‘wipe out balls’, an ‘assault course’, ‘demolition zone’, ‘human table football’ and ‘wipe out sweepers’.

Annaclone and Magherally YFC won the tournament and received the John Bradley Challenge Cup.

Second place went to Lisnamurrican YFC and Collone YFC took the dubious title of Most Heroic Failure.

The John Bradley Challenge was established after the untimely death of John Bradley, a member of Ballycraigy YFC who was killed in a motorbike accident in 1995.

Anyone who met John was impressed and overwhelmed by his boundless enthusiasm, commitment and his refusal to accept no for an answer.

He always looked to extend what YFCU members could do and continually challenged members to try new things and learn new skills.

And so the yearly John Bradley Challenge tries to continue what he started.
