Interesting that you're putting us ahead of some bands who have been on a contest stage recently, while it's many a year since Markham Main did any contesting. Has someone been whispering about where some of our new(ish) signings have come from ;)

Frickley strengthening their grip on this market but the real movers are Tong, Mr Harper knows how to win here of course and is generally regarded as the 'Prince of Entertainment' (heir to King Dicky's throne me thinks..)

Well frontman, if you thought 13/2 was pressure you'd better take another look. Dronfield attracting their usual level of market support also

andy_euph is attracting a loyal following from his fellow leaguers, JS Newbiggin clearly have a chance @ 7/1. Other than that we seem to have open rebellion to my opening show, don't be suprised if Paddy throws a few cheeky £s on Maltby & Melton.

Anyway, what's all the 'league' talk? I hear you ask. Well Paddy's Fantasy Brass Band League needs YOU, all are welcome, just send me a mail for deets.

Don't know where the "loyal following" will have come from, I haven't bribed anyone :). Looking forward to the contest next weekend, hope we can put on a good show, as we've got a famous name to live up to!

Paddy what odds can I have on the phrase at some point over the weekend, either from the judges or the banding press, "the piece was the real winner", in the 2nd and 3rd sections.
