We have delved into the Post’s archives to pick out some stories from over a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, May 28, 2008.

It was a bitter-sweet success for Clydebank’s representatives at the 2008 Scottish Pipe Band Championships.

As newcomers to the piping world, Clydebank Pipe Band came agonisingly close to lifting the national title and despite missing out were still “overjoyed” with the achievement.

After winning promotion in 2007 the band – which was established in 2002 – competed in the 4A grade for the first time and after a stirring performance, managed to catch the imagination of the crowd.

The band was hoping that this second-place finish could send them toward another trophy-laden and promotion-bound season.
