    ollowing our recent success at the Yorkshire Areas, we have an immediate vacancy for a quality front row cornet player, in preparations for the Grand Shield in April. The Band are celebrating their 125th Anniversary this year, so have a good mixture of programme of events to look forward to.

    We are a hard working & committed Band, but always find time to play hard and are well known for being a sociable bunch too!

    For further details contact our Musical Director Glyn Williams on 07976 628956/

    I may be wrong, but I believe a couple of bands have had a reprieve following withdrawals.

    That's what I heard too, Peter - as I understand it, Redbridge have also stayed up in the Grand Shield for the same reason.

    Marsden are definitely in the Grand Shield this year. They were told a few weeks ago.

    Yes, apparently it's down to the strength of Welsh banding...

    Withdrawals (from the Grand Shield, iirc) effectively giving them a reprieve, was what I had heard. But yes, if you believe 4BR, *everything* is down to the strength of the mighty red dragon at the moment... :tongue:

    The bottom 4 were relegated. Marsden was the top band in that 4, so would have the 1st chance of an offer if a band dropped out. A band dropped out, so they got offered the place.

    Fair enough a real oppurtunity to make there mark
