Player of the Year and Bands person of the Year

Congratulations to Rebecca Doyle and Andrew Blackledge for their incredible contributions to Leyland Band this year, with Rebecca winning ‘Player of the Year’ and Andrew receiving the Mottershead Shield for his outstanding contributions in support of the band.

What can we say about Rebecca? – A truly amazing player who consistently delivers performances of the very highest quality on Solo Horn. She has performed mesmerising solos at concerts far and wide this year, and has as ever, been brilliant on the contest stage.

Andrew’s award is richly deserved, after a year that has seen him doing all kinds of behind the scenes work to sustain the band and keep it running smoothly. And on the playing front he has been a rock in the Leyland cornet section. Band’s needs people like Andy, and we appreciate everything he does for Leyland.
