Dinnington Colliery band are pleased to announce several new signings ahead of the Yorkshie Regional Competition in Bradford. Sarah Vernon joins as our new Principal Cornet. Sarah has joined from the Thoresby band, where she played on the back row. Sarah has enjoyed success with the Whitwell Band, where she lead the band to it's first major title in it's history as well as other competiton successes with Harworth, Welbeck Estates and Creswell. Also from the Whitwell band is Lizzie Raspin, who has joined on Flugel horn. Lizzie is a rising star in the North Midlands and will be a great asset to the band. The Front Row Cornets are joined by Matt Colley, who has signed from Harworth Brass and is joined by Oonagh Bagley, who makes her contesting debut after joining at Christmas. There has also been a slight re-shuffle on the Baritone and Euphonium line. Kieren Williams takes up the position of Solo Euphonium with Emma Botham on Second. Diane Allison will play Solo Baritone with another debutant, Ben Riley, playing Second. We are delighted to welcome all of our new signings and are now looking forward to the Area, where we hope to cement our position in the 2nd Section for 2008. 2006 marked a great revival for the band and we hope to keep up the momentum established in recent months.
