The Kirkintilloch Band, conducted by Allan Ramsay, claimed their place in the West Lothian Entertainment Contest Final after posting a clear cut semi final win in Livingston on the weekend.
Four point margin
Up against Unison Kinneil directed by Andrew Duncan and Kingdom Brass conducted by Craig Anderson, the band's seven piece entertainment set saw them take the semi final honours by a four point margin.
