The nummers wis a wee bittie disappintin but aiblins juist as weel for oor first shot as it gied us the chance tae brek in easy-like. A nummer o schuils, parteeclar the [CENSORED: placename] Cluster said they wad liked tae hiv taen pairt but haedna been gien eneuch notice. Thon will be sortit for neist year's competeetion.
