Brighouse Bag Bilbo Hobbins on Sop

Brighouse and Rastrick have announced the signing of Alan Hobbins from Fodens and Mark Walters of Flugel.

 

Brighouse and Ratrick have announced a few new signings in the past few weeks, including the return to the band of Duncan Biers on solo cornet, Mike Norton on Bb bass and Stephen Miles on solo euphonium.

Now they announce that Alan Hobbins the well travelled cornet and sop player has joined them on the sop chair from Fodens, where he was playing on the front row.

Alan is highly regarded as a player of real quality, but has been seen in more new team colours than Nicholas Anelka and Stan Collymore put together! He should however bring some stability to a position that has seen no real fixed person in place at Brighouse since Martin Irwin left.

Also joining the ranks is the superb flugel horn player Mark Walters (he of Flight fame) who will be taking over from Garry Lord for a short period as he recovers from a hernia (ouch!)

Its another good signing for the boys from West Riding and boosts their hopes for the forthcoming Areas.
