We are absolutely delighted to announce the appointment of Connor Ross Jones as Colour Guard Caption Head for the 2019 season.
He has been involved with the organisation since 2010 as performing member and more recently as staff of the colour guard and also Senior Winter Guard programs.
Connor commented “It makes me immensely proud to be taking on the role of the Caption Head. After 10 years of involvement with the organisation, it was a natural progression for me as a teacher and educator, made all the more possible by the opportunity that arose for me.”
As well as this he has recently been a performer with Carolina Crown (2016) and the Santa Clara Vanguard (2017 and 2018) having been crowned the Drum Corps International World Champions this past summer with their show Babylon. For the 2019 winter season Connor is also performing with Mayflower winterguard on their journey to the WGI Sport of the ArtsChampionships next month.
He continues “I hope my recent success at DCI and 16 years drum corps experience will bring a fresh and new vibe to the Colour Guard. I am so excited to see where this journey takes us, whilst holding onto the excellence, prestige and values of the Kidsgrove Scouts Colour Guard. Special thanks to Rob Swindells for his constant support and trust in me and my ability to do this job and honourable mention to Brad for prior success leading the Colour Guard.”
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank exiting Caption Head, Bradley Stinton for all his hard work over the years. We are extremely grateful for his commitment and would like to wish him all the very best.
If you are looking for a guard to join this summer, then look no further. We have spots available to perform with the corps and to be part of our journey ‘Into the Unknown’. For more information get in touch by emailing email@example.com
