World Rankings: June/July update5-Jul-2009
The latest World of Brass—4barsrest Rankings show some significant movements following the English National Championships at Preston last weekend.

Black Dyke’s victory takes it closer to a top-three place, and Leyland, Fairey and Hepworth (Cookson Homes) are the other significant movers, while Kirkintilloch moves back into the top 20 after its win at the West Lothian Festival last week.
