Fourth Section review:
And now to the real hard part. 17 bands in the Fourth Section
will have a good old-fashioned test in Sirius by Frank
Wright, and that should really test the basics of good band playing
out to the full.
Just three of the bands that were in Preston are on display in
Prestatyn, and of those only Carlton Brass who came 6th
performed well there. This should put them up there if they
are on form, but the Fourth Section is notorious for upsetting the
form book. (We should know, judging by our pathetic efforts in predicting
the National Finals).
Malty Miners Welfare who came 11th and Pemberton Old
Wigan B who came 14th are the other Preston finalists
chancing their arm, but others will surely fancy their chances.
Seven others are back from last year with the bands that came 2nd,
3rd, 4th, 6th, 8th and
11th all trying again. Of these Rivington and
Adlington were the runners up, whilst Syston came 3rd.
Standish who were 4th and Blackley who came 6th
will be hoping for a little more luck, whilst Conway who were 8th
and Leicester Co-op Snibston who were 11th will be trying
for better things.
Of the rest, Abertillery came 4th at the Welsh regional
contest, whilst Hayle Brass came 9th and Shrewton Silver
7th in the South West region. In Yorkshire, Ripponden
Carriers came 7th, and Uppermill came home 13th
in the North West, whilst Wellington (Telford) Brass were 11th
in the Midlands. Im afraid we have no news on Whitwell
We are bound to get this wrong so apologises right at the
start for outing the kiss of death on our choices. We hope
you dont let us down.
