Following a comfortable 6-0 away win against Oban Celtic at Mossfield Park, Jim Barr, President
of the Camanachd Association presented the trophy to our captain
Queen, Paddy then introduced the rest of the squad as they received their well deserved medals.
Manager Ted McDonald was full of praise for the players efforts over the season
and stressed that each and every one of the first team pool was vital to our success, he was delighted with the commitment
and passion within the squad and stated that they had exceeded his expectations.
Robert Walker provided the start we needed to help calm the nerves when
he scored after just 2 minutes and when Duncan Davidson, with a fine turn and shot, made it 2 after 18 minutes we were well
on our way to the title.
McKay scored two excellent goals in the 24th. and 29th. minutes and Robert Walker made it 5 after 40 minutes to give us a
comfortable half time lead.
The second half was
a bit of an anti climax as we eased off before Robert Walker scored his third of the game and our 6th. after 79 minutes, yet
another hat trick Zeb. Credit must be given to the Oban Celtic players for their tireless efforts even when they were reduced
to 11 men due to injuries, they never gave up and played to the final whistle.
Special mention once again should be made for the play of Craig McKay and Ryan Craig, both members
of our under 14 team, they are now worthy first team regulars.
thanks also to David Whitelaw for making the effort in travelling from Lancaster for the game, the smile on his face after
the match showed it was worth it.

To all Members
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute to the success
of our club, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that we sometimes take for granted . A team
on the park depends on the hard work and efforts of all club members.

of our players who also give freely of their time to make repairs to the property. George can
also be found behind the bar on match days and other occasions dispensing great cheer to all.
We turn up on match days to a clean clubhouse and the away teams
are treated to excellent meals prepared and served by Nancy Gourlay and Margaret Whitelaw, the
soup is always delicious as is Nancy`s home baking. Margaret ensures our playing strips are washed and
ready for each match. Sincere thanks to you both.

including weddings, birthday parties etc. as well as dog training lessons and fitness classes for
adults all providing good monetary income, this takes up a great deal of his time and often goes without
notice, our thanks, well done Barry.
Last but not least we have Tommy Howat ably running our Club Lottery, he goes

out the winnings. Without this source of income we would struggle financially. Thank you Tommy. We would ask once again for your support by buying tickets for this lotto draw, it offers
good prize money to those who participate.
