    Senior Trophy

    I'll leave prices until the FULL 20 are confirmed, it should be the following 14 with an extra 6 invited bands

    Aldbourne
    Beaumaris
    Blackburn & Darwen
    Bournemouth Concert Brass
    Camborne Town
    Friary Guildford Brass
    Glossop Old
    Johnstone Silver
    Knottingley Silver
    Lindley
    Northop Silver
    Wantage Silver
    Wrexham Brass
    Yorkshire Co-op

    If anyone knows who the other 6 are (or any info about line-ups contrary to what i've got) t'would be much appreciated

    BTW if Paddy were signing the invites, the contest secretarys from the following 6 bands would be getting some post

    Bon Accord Silver
    KM Medway
    Kidlington Concert Brass
    Lydbrook Silver
    Timperley
    Zone One Brass

    but that's just my opinion

    Actually I only considered those bands who were Champ Section last year NOT those promoted, so try these 6 instead...

    Bon Accord Silver
    Kidlington Concert Brass
    Lydbrook Silver
    Norfolk Brass :clap:
    Wakefield Metropolitan :clap:
    Zone One

    Although another non-promoted one...

    Stannington will not be there, because even after 4 years of trying we still have not been blessed with an invite :mad:

    I seem to remember it took Milnrow quite some time to get an invite. I wonder if there is a set invitation criterea. I would have thought so. Can anyone answer?

    doubt if Bon Accord would accept an invite as they're going to the European, and we all know how expensive THAT is!!

    I think Felling are invited to the Trophy again this year. I'm sure someone will be along to confirm either way in due course.

    Not heard anything yet if we are. Glad to see somebody has faith, Paddy! We've often wondered why we find it so hard to get a re-invite. Came 6th at Frank Hodges's other contest in Prestatyn last year, and have always come well above one of the listed freshly invited bands in every contest we've met them at. Came 7th at the Trophy on two weeks notice in 2004; dropped out with 16th the following year - but two of the four bands that came lower were reinvited within 3 years, while the other two (Mid-Rhondda and Soham) have dropped off the championship radar contesting-wise.

    It's frustrating. Though I shall eat my words if an invite does show up in the post!

    I would care to post 20 of the cyber pounds on the Pemberton Old DW Wigan Band.
    At 25/1 should be relatively easy money.
