Where there are rules there must be judges and without the services of judges the match would not be able to take place. Fortunately there is a significant band of people willing to undertake the difficult task and Sherwood Forest Ploughing Match appoints 16 judges.

The Society of Ploughmen provides judge’s training days and usually these men have been ploughmen themselves. It is surprisingly easy to find willing volunteers to assemble this group of wonderful people who we have pleasure to work with. What’s more, they give up their time for a bottle and a burger!

We would like to thank all those Judges, past and present, who come to our match. We do appreciate you giving us your time.
