Report & Results: 2019 Morley March & Hymn Tune Contest

Skelmanthorpe takes the march and hymn tune honours at Morley

Skelmanthorpe
  Martin Heartfield led Skelmanthorpe to the title

The Skelmanthorpe Band enjoyed a profitable weekend on the keenly contested march & hymn tune circuit as they claimed the £600 first prize and the Crispin Trophy at the popular Morley event.

Led by MD Martin Heartfield they also boosted the total with an extra £150 for topping both the march and hymn tune categories.

They were hard pushed by Yorkshire rivals Marsden Silver who picked up £350 (with cornet player Anna Ferguson taking the 'Best Instrumentalist' award), whilst Yorkshire Imps were third.

Awards

The 'Best First, Second and Third Section Band' prizes went to Ripon, Marple and Uppermill respectively with Shirland Youth Band claiming the 'Best Youth Band', 'Hymn Tune' and 'Deportment' prizes to boost their coffers by £190. The senior deportment award was claimed by Fishburn.
