    Yes, the fourth section result was a little odd. I'd possibly say it was a complete travesty actually!
    I heard all the bands and, in my opinion (and several others who i've since spoken to), Besses Boys gave a much better account of Seasons than Greenfield who took 1st place. Greenfield played last, just after BBB, and the performance was just not as enjoyable.

    We (Haslingden) played A London Overture in 2nd Section AND Championship Section! Won the 2nd and beat Tintwistle in the Championship! Not a bad day's work.

    Ah, the 4th Section result....... Those of us that listened to all bar one of the bands had St John's Mossley WAY out in front of the rest. They played an absolute blinder! Strange that they didn't even get placed. Besses were definitley better than Greenfield (although they played very well).

    One thing disappointed me with the 4th section on Sunday- lack of power and/ or dynamics. Hardly heard any all morning! From what I remember of playing in the 4th section it was always a case of "shut up, you're too loud!!"

    Crofton played well, really compact and together, and 3rd place with all the bands that were there was an excellent show!!
