    Who is Britain's most successful bandsperson in terms of National, British Open, Masters, English Nationals, European & Brass In Concert wins?

    My money's on a percussion player from Yorkshire.

    I think Peter Roberts or any of the YBS crew from the last decade would have a good shout at that.

    I think that depends on whether or not you count an Open above a National or vice versa and if a European is ranked anywhere near as highly.

    Having said that I think it must be Kevin Crockford or Derek Jackson with Richard Clough somewhere in the mix.

    Think you are right Nige Cloughie would be well up the list...

    I know that Derek Jackson has won at least 10 open titles most with dyke and a couple with faireys, and he must have won the nationals quite a few with dyke in the 60's and 70's.

    Open: 83,85,86,94,97,99,01,03
    Euro: 79,82,83,84,85,87,90,99,00,01,02,03,04.
    Masters: 92,99,00,04
    Area: 85,87,90,91,04
    Or there abouts (never could count, not even in band)
