Bradford Contest results and report


On Sunday 17th June the rain held off and the sun even came out to welcome in the first Drum Corps United Kingdom contest of the 2012 season which was held at Horsfall Stadium in Bradford.

In a new initiative - a British Youth Band Association contest took place in the morning at the same venue and then after lunch the DCUK event took place.

For the past few years the first contest of the season has taken place at the beginning of July and even though this was two weeks earlier, coupled with the awful weather we have had to endure recently, the standard of the performances surpassed anything we have seen at this time of year for a number of seasons.

In the Junior Class, Kidsgrove Scouts Juniors (43.95) came first - continuing where they left off at the end of the 2011 season whilst Concord Allstars came second (36.45). 

In the eight Corps Open Class contest The Company (68.00) took first blood followed closely by reigning DCUK Champions Kidsgrove Scouts (65.55). The 6th from came third (51.90)and were closly followed by Poynton Commodores (50.30) and Staffordshire Knights (49.75) with East Coast Elite (46.65), Revolution (42.00) and Beeches (38.85).

A full recap of the scores from this show can be found on our results page.
