    After 16 years in West Yorkshire I'm moving back to my native north east. I'm going to be living in the Middlesbrough area and want a band to join. I'm happy to travel reasonable distances for the right band.

    Although I havent played at all for a year (due to time spent travelling to Boro everyday) I feel the time is nigh to get back into practice.

    I generally play cornet or flugel and I'm of a fairly decent standard. I would say my favourite seat is Rep or flugel. I have mainly played in first and championship section bands and this is where I would like to remain ideally.

    My house move is due to occur in September so I should be in a position to join a band around then.

    If your band has a position free or you know that a position will be free in September drop me a PM. If you need any further info from me again drop me a PM.

    Look forward to hearing from you and looking forward to coming home!!!

    This guy is a really excellent player on either cornet or flugel and will be a great asset to any band.
    He is also a smashing fella with a great sense of humour.
    A first class bandsman in every respect.
    The only downside is that he supports Liverpool, but nobodies perfect !!
