    Just out of interest, during the areas this year i noticed most adjudicators were older.
    Question is who has been the youngest area adjudicator ever?

    haha not quite what i meant, It just strikes me as interesting that there never seems to be any adjudicators under the age of 40...that I know of.
    Why is this?
    Surely the players at the top of their game are more than qualified despite their age.

    Scotland had Dave Thornton adjudicating a couple of the sections up here, sure he's around 30!?!

    A bit off topic, but there was a 16 year old, Eoin Tonner, conducting a third section band in Scotland this year, Dundee Instrumental (St. Margaret's)

    Philip Harper was born in 1973, which makes him 35 years old.

    David Thornton was born in 1978, which makes him 30 years old.

    And the winner is . . . . . .

    So is 30 the youngest adjudicator we've ever had?
    Or is there someone not been mentioned yet???
    If not the winner would be Dave Thornton
