    Come on then. Perhaps I`m a bit premature but predictions please for "The Scottish". I reckon ( money where my mouth is etc)

    Champ Whitburn
    1st Newtongrange (although I hope my band spoil this prediction)
    2nd Barrhead

    Beyond that I`m struggling :oops:

    Champ- 1 Co op 2 Kirky- Dark Horse- Kinneil
    1st- Newtongrange
    2nd- City of Discovery

    After that I have no idea who is in what section, being an adopted sassenach for too long.

    I hope all the Fife bands do well as well, C'Mon YOU FIFERS!!!!!

    Here's my shady predictions

    Champ: Whitburn 2. Co-op

    1st: Nitten 2. Clackmannan

    2nd: St Ronans 2. Dalkeith

    3rd Jedforest 2. Irvine

    4th. Dunfermline 2. Bon-Accord B
    (Excluding my own band from prediction, no tempting fate for me)

    It gets harder the lower the section, all bands quite close down there

    I think it'll be a close one this year between Co-op and Whitburn, Kirky in third, Kingdom and Kinneil in the 4th and 5th places.

    We've got a feature on the Scottish on the band website, www.kingdombrass.co.uk

    I know that but I don't know any other bands so it wouldn't be fair to put them to win really. Hope Kingdom do well and hope your move is an enjoyable one!!

    everyone seems to have overlooked one band that has done consistantly well at the scottish championships, finishing 1st, 2nd and 2nd the past three years: Arbroath!

    how many other band have moved from 4th to 1st section in three years? we'll see :)
