Fourth Section Preview & Prediction

Other returnees include Maltby Miners Welfare who came 9th last time out and, Thoresby Colliery Youth, who have tasted success here in the past, although they failed to shine at the lower section nationals at harrogate where they came 18th.

Fourth Section Retrospective

Tewkesbury and Thoresby Colliery Youth produced two wonderfully coloured performances,, exciting and atomsperic, but riddled with just too many basic flaws to have pushed higher than 7th and 8th. here were two bands though on the cusp of producing something special - so watch out for the regionals.
