National Champs to miss Masters?

Could the "Double" Champions Fairey FP (Music) be missing from the 2004 All England Masters?

 

Unsubstantiated news reaches 4BR that the current National Champions Fairey FP (Music) could be missing from the line up for the 2004 All England Masters Championships.

The date for the Masters has been fixed for Sunday 30th May next year, whilst according to the new website for the band, they have provisionally "inked in" a tour of Belgium which is due to take place from the 28th until the 31st of that month.

We understand that there is a possibility that the tour could be close to final confirmation, and so that would mean the Champions not being at the Masters this year.

We will wait and see if there are any further developments. but it would be a blow to the Masters, who have sent out invitations to all the top English bands and were hoping that both Black Dyke and Grimethorpe could make an appearance next year.
