More new players at Imps

Yorkshire Imps have welcomed more signings to the ranks.

Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart

 

Yorkshire Imperial David Urquhart Travel has given a warm welcome to the return of flugel star Anna Spedding.

Fluel return

Anna recently enjoyed a successful spell as principal cornet at Rainford as well as flugel at Carlton Main Frickley Colliery, but as band spokesperson and horn player Jessica Martin told 4BR: "It’s an absolute pleasure to sit next to Anna. She brings a fantastic sound to complement our section."

Cornets

Imps also welcome Jeffrey Bailey and Joe Derrick tutti solo cornet and 3rd cornet respectively.

Jeffrey joins from Wakefield Metropolitan with Joe coming from City of Bradford, with both lads studying the University of Huddersfield under the watchful eye of Phillip McCann.

It’s great to have some young blood coming into the band to compliment the experience that Anna brings on her returnMD Dave Nesbitt
