The UK Plumber of the Year 2018 competition (@UKPOTY), launched by JT, Bristan and Wolseley, has revealed the 18 finalists shortlisted for the prestigious competition.

With over double the number of entries than the previous year, Watersafe, the official judging partner of the competition, had the tricky task of selecting three finalists from each of the six chosen regions (North England, South England, Midlands and West, London, Wales and Scotland) to go into the next stage of the competition.

The public will now vote for who they believe deserves the title in each region, with the six regional finalists going through to the grand final to be crowned Plumber of the Year 2018.

The final 18, in no particular order, are:

Gus Cairney – Scotland
Ian Williamson, Scotland
Scott White, Scotland
Dave Hignett, North England
Matthew Stoves, North England
James Nippers, North England
Andrew Riley, Midlands and West
John Nicholls, Midlands and West
Neil Bamford, Midlands and West
Steven Davies, Wales
Robbie Hawkins, Wales
Murray Price, Wales
Sam Baker, London
Xohan Duran, London
James Elmy, London
Mark Majury, South of England
Ross King, South of England
Steve Bartin, South of England

Now in its fourth year, the competition called on plumbers nationwide to enter in a bid to find Britain’s finest. The competition is designed to reward and recognise the remarkable talents within the UK’s plumbing industry and ask entrants to demonstrate their plumbing, service and business skills.
