    That sounded bitter?

    No, not bitter - sarcastic was the intention.

    For those that don't know, Lees Band recently provided 9 players across all sections to fill player vacancies in Oldham band. It's a testament to John Collins teaching skills that a band that came seventh in the fourth section at the 2012 Northern Open, was able to provide these players ( the majority of which are still in their early teens) and come 4th in the Championship section event this year.

    Lees band will be absent from the contesting stage for a while but we are rebuilding with a view to developing (under John's tutelage) the next generation of players. The biggest challenge at moment is finding horn players (both tenor & flugel). If you know any promising players in the Oldham/Saddleworth areas who want to be part of the experience, get them to contact me.
