Yes they were promoted from third section last year along with Shotts who did not do so well today.

I was gonna say - I'm sure I saw them down in Torquay - where we didn't do so hot!! :roll:

For the rest of the results:

My band were 9th in Third section (I wasn't playing though.) It was quite a disappointing result :cry: , but hey, its the taking part that counts anyway!

I was thinking Kirkintilloch, Clackmannanshire and Broxden for the Championship section. Kirkintilloch were 2nd, Broxden 5th and Clackmannanshire 10th, so thats why I ain't an adjudicator!

Well done to everyone who competed.
Thanx groovy, we were pleased, sorry your band were not placed but hey it's the taking part that counts :? I though Kirkintilloch would have won. I am not long back from the competition, only there listening to day, but I thought they sounded good. But like you that's why I play and not judge :roll:

The worst bit about today was...I MISSED SEEING MY OWN BAND PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :? :? :? :cry: :cry: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil:

Basically I had to walk a couple of miles to pick up the car from the station in the pouring rain, drove to Falkirk (well actually was chauffered by my mum.... :? )and arrived in time to see the band heading back to the bus!

They'd just come off 2 mins before. They played pretty well though (or so they told me :D )

I really liked Broxden's performance of Prague. Also, the euphonium soloist for Clackmannanshire was George Cameron who went to school with my mum, and he was very good.

Thanks very much Tubby. Hope we're back in the top section soon.
Everyone seems to be misspelling us for some reason, even the official programme! We're actually Newmilns & Galston. Newmills is a different place about 100 miles away.

:D Does anyone know who got the trophies for "Best Trombone" and "Best Cornet" at the Scottish Championships for the Championship section? I didn't find out who got it but there were some very good soloists. Thanx! :D


New Member
The best trombone went to Paul Kiernan of CWS and the best cornet went to their principal. Don't know his name I'm afraid.
