    Emley band would be more than happy to hear from you if you'd like to come along and see if you like us. We're currently a 4th section band looking for a quick return to the 3rd, having been relegated by 1 point last year :mad:

    We're a very frieindly bunch, just outside huddersfield, 15 minutes drive from either j39 of the M1 or j26 of the M62.

    If you'd like to come along you can either email me (email address is in my profile) or pm me and i'll sort you out with some directions (although if you know the area Emley isn't too hard to find owing to the whacking great television mast there that you can see from miles around!!) :rolleyes:

    Look forward to hearing from you.
