Third Section Preview

Finally, two good hard working bands make the move up from the fourth section looking to make an immediate impression.

Thoresby Colliery Youth has been maturing very nicely under the thoughtful direction of Christine Gent, whilst Nigel Morgan has been doing same with Tewkesbury. Both shouldn't be discounted


Third Section Retrospective

Thoesby Colliery Youth meanwhile left with a great deal of encouragement, despite their overall result. Scrappy and nervous in places; it nonetheless had style and some fine solo inerludes. Tiredness meant the reserves of stamina waned, but there were plenty of plus points in this on despite ending in 15th.
