After day one of the Yorkshire Regionals at Huddersfield this year, Sheffield bands have been doing the city proud.
In the fourth section, Loxley finished a creditable third. Sheffield isn’t represented in the Second Section, but Wosboroug Brass is only a bit further up the M1 and under the baton of John Hopkinson, they achieved a good second place. In the first section, Stannington and Unite The Union were both competing in a strong section. It wasn’t to be for last year’s Second Section National Champions Stannington who finished a disappointing eleventh, but it was a different matter for Unite who will be representing Sheffield at Cheltenham later this year with a strong second place.
Tomorrow (Sunday) it’s the Third and Championship sections. In the Third we have Dronfield and Oughtibridge representing Sheffield and Chapeltown in the Championship section.
