Notts County Cricket Club respond to banning trumpeter from grounds

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club has defended the clubs position after news that Billy Cooper, also known as Billy The Trumpet- a cricket supporter who plays for the Barmy Army, was told he can't play at the 1st Ashes Test at Trent Bridge.

This isn't a personal thing with Billy (or his trumpet). We've had a no musical instruments policy for a long time though.... he was informed by our event safety officer that the policy was in place and nothing has changed. We've got some performance spaces outside of the ground so hopefully he'll find a good spot somewhere.
