Shinty Result for 19th. July 2014
Our First Team were away on Saturday
19th. July, this time to Beauly. We were missing several regulars and they were replaced by schoolboys, Graham
Fisher being joined in the team by his son Craig while young Craig McKay also played for the full 90 minutes. This lack
of experience against a strong Beauly team resulted in a 10-0 defeat, however our lads never gave up or became downhearted
and they will surely benefit from a game at this level.
Two of our youth players, Scott Dunn and Ben Clark, will be attending the shinty camp at Strathallan School from
Sunday 20th. July until Thursday 24th July to help develop their shinty skills.
On Saturday 26th. July our First Team are at home to Kilmallie in the National League while
our second team travel to play Inveraray in the South Division 2, this match has a 12 noon start.
Good news for our under 14 development team who have qualified for
their league finals which will be held in Oban on 23rd. August 2014. Well done boys, the club is very proud of you all.
The membership fee of £40 for senior players is now due and can be paid to any committee
member. It takes a great deal of money to run our club and the subscription fees are much needed, we will accept payment
We would remind all senior players that our
training is at the Meadows on both Monday and Thursday at 6-15pm. On Mondays this is taken by David McVey,
who kindly gives up his time to support our club, this session is varied and very professional, please make the effort
to attend and support David as he certainly supports us.
The youth and primary school training will be held at the Meadows for the duration of the
school summer holidays.
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute to
the success of our club, we are a community club and each and every one of us has a part to play, we must pull together and
work for the good of the club as a whole. A successful team on the park depends on the hard work and efforts of all club
members. We need to keep our clubhouse and changing facilities in good condition to help provide funds for its upkeep,
it costs a lot of money to run a club such as ours and we need to look at other sources of income, all ideas are welcome.
We would thank our sponsors for their continued and valuable support,
we really do appreciate them and welcome their contributions.
We also look forward once again to welcoming those who attend on match days to provide support
to our teams, it gives the players a boost and makes them give that bit more effort, please continue to come along,
bring family and friends and stay for a while after the games to enjoy a drink or two in the bar.
We would ask once again for your support by buying tickets for our
weekly lotto draw so efficiently managed by Tommy Howat, this provides valuable funds for the club as well as offering good
prize money to those who participate.
