Competition winners headline spot

Former pupil

Halton band The Odds are celebrating after winning a major competition which they hope will pave the way to national success.
The four-piece indie and rock band stole the show at the 'Rock Star Wars' held at the Liverpool Bar Fly recently.
They fought off competition from more than 40 bands from all over the region to claim a headlining spot at the Camden Bar Fly venue in London - a hunting ground for many a music scout and record producer.
Frontman Adam Cafferty said he couldn't believe the response when they were declared winners.
He said: 'When we won the final it was fantastic. There were four judges and it was a unanimous vote to make us the winners. 'When they announced 'The Odds from Widnes' the place just went mad.

'But we came on with a bang and just ripped it up from the start.'
Adam said a sizeable contingent will be following them down to London to help cheer them on.
He said: 'We've got two coaches coming down with us for the London gig on October 13.
'We're going to make a proper night of it and everyone is staying overnight.'
Adam added that after years of wowing music fans in Halton the opportunity to play in London could take the band to the next level.
He said: 'It's a chance to get spotted because the Gamden Bar Fly is a very prestigious place to play
'You never know who might be watching.'
