Bradford Day one

Sheffield bands have failed to top the scoring at the Bradford regionals so far this weekend, but hopes are high for the fourth, second and championship sections today, all with strong local representation. In the Championship section, Unite The Union will be flying the Sheffield flag. Chapeltown and Dronfield will be going head to head in the second section and Oughtibridge and Deepcar will be hoping to get in the places in the fourth. The fourth section will be even better represented next year when Loxley join their ranks.

It was a good day yesterday for South Yorkshire Police though who secured promotion to the Championship Section and another South Yorkshire Band, Strata Brass finished a creditable fifth following their win at the NEMBBA contest last weekend.
