Battle of the bands! Following the success of the 2004 event, the United Co-op Yorkshire Brass Band is running a second 5 a-side football tournament, due to take place on 31 July 2005 at Stanley Rodillians Rugby Club, Manley Park, Rothwell. Last year’s event saw around 20 teams compete and bands from the top flight including YBS, Faireys and Sellers International locked horns with teams from the lower sections, including Emley Brass, Meltham & Meltham Mills and Ireland Colliery Chesterfield. However, the only team entered that was not from a brass band won the tournament, taking home the prize money! Prize money of £75 will be up for grabs for the winning team and the tournament organisers are hoping that even more teams will enter this year and come and join the fun which will also include a bar, barbeque and raffle. For an entry form e-mail Tabby Clegg at email@example.com The following month on Saturday 27 August, the band will also be holding another black tie ball and more information can be obtained from Tabby Clegg. Thanks to the guys at Rothwell Temps for assisting with footie arrangements!
