Hannah Marsh was presented with the 'Young Player of the Year' award whilst Terry Ellis picked up the 'Howard Firth Memorial Trophy' and Amanda Drake took the 'Bandsperson of the Year' award. 'Most Improved Player' went to trombonist Joshua Wingfield and the 'Section of the Year' was a delighted percussion team.
