Blidworth also enjoyed a fine return at the National Finals — coming 7th against a strong field of rivals before going on to win the Bolsover contest for the third time in four years.

To acknowledge the hard work of the players, annual awards were presented at a recent concert, with Morgan Gallimore, Andrew Baldwin, Trevor Milner, Phil Lee and the Bass Section being presented with individual and section honours.

All the players are really happy with what we have achieved in 2014 so far, and are currently preparing for Leicester contest in Novemberspokesperson

Happy so far

A band spokesperson told 4BR: "All the players are really happy with what we have achieved in 2014 so far, and are currently preparing for Leicester contest in November.

We are also looking forward to the challenge that promotion to the Championship section in January will bring."
