The 9 a side tournament on Saturday 6th February at the 3g pitch
at the school campus proved to be a big success despite the weather. Five teams took part, Bute A and B, Col Glen, Dunoon
Camanachd and Kyles Athletic with Kilmory withdrawing late on Saturday morning.
All games were played in a very competitive fashion showing all that is good in our sport. Each
team played 4 matches with little between the teams in most games, at the end of the day however the final was played between
Bute A, who had won 3 and drawn one and Kyles, who had won 2, drawn 1 and lost 1.
This was another very close match with no scoring at the end of regulation time and the match
went to penalties. The wind and rain made this very difficult for the players with Bute winning by 2 penalties to 1 out of
the 10 taken, Craig McKay and James Craig scoring for Bute.
Our thanks to all teams who turned out in such difficult conditions, it was especially pleasing to welcome Dunoon
Camanachd in their first season of competitive shinty.
The referees, Ted McDonald and Barry Martin, should also be thanked for duties and of course Margaret
Whitelaw who provided sandwiches and hot soup which was especially welcome on such as cold and wet day.
We would hope to make this an annual event and welcome back all
teams next year.
