Fourth Section Introduction & Predictions

There was a battle royal at Bedworth amongst the 23 contestants to take little and the three qualification places on offer. In the end a highly impressive performance form Aminington under Wesley Kendrick saw them the win with something to spare from Croft Silver and Thoresby Colliery Youth.

Our darkest of dark horses this time around are Thoresby who could well upset the form book.

Fourth Section Retrosective

Thoresby Youth rounded off the whole contest with a decent performance that perhaps had enough about it to have come higher than it eventually did in 18th place. the two later moments in particular were their best, but the opening section may have cost them valuable points as they did take a little while to settle.
