Craig Morrison to be remembered at Sixes

June 28th, 2010 No comments

Craig Morrison 1989-2009

It has been almost exactly a year since Camanachd Leodhais lost one of its favourite sons in a tragic accident.

The memory of Craig Morrison, who was taken from his family and friends in a tragic accident at the age of 20, will be kept alive permanently by the announcement that Camanachd Leodhais will be putting the Craig Morrison Memorial Shield up for competition at this weekend’s Stornoway Shinty Sixes and those in the future.

Craig’s parents have given permission for the trophy to be named after their son, who was a wonderfully dedicated player and trainer.  Craig’s presence is always missed on and off the field by those who knew him and we know that he would have loved to have been involved on Saturday but would be delighted at the progress the club is making

Whilst we hope for a very happy and enjoyable day of shinty this Saturday, we will all be remembering our team mate and friend and also thinking of the family left behind, his mother and father and his brother Sean, who has also played for Camanachd Leodhais.

Please come and show your support on Saturday.

Play starts at 1pm at Stornoway Primary School, Saturday 3 July.

After a long break since the first sixes (3 years!) Stornoway Primary School will play host to the Stornoway Shinty Six-A-Side Tournament again on Saturday 3 July.

There will be a trophy up for grabs with some more news to follow on that particular aspect.

The day will start at 1pm with play hopefully beginning at 1.30pm and finished by 4.30pm, there will be a BBQ and a Raffle as well so bring some money!

Anyone interested can get in touch with Paul or Eoghan via the club e-mail address.


KLB Sixes – Lewis Storm Mainland

A lot more to follow but lets just say the following:

“B”-Team immense

Champions, no goals lost, undefeated, Tich scored 5, Scott player of the tournament, Paddy promising at buckshee back, and the Gaga – well, was the Gaga.

“A”-team promising

everyone did really well only beaten by two long rangers in both games against Farr A and KLB and should have beaten Farr B. Euan Gilmour great in goals, Calum Blane good hitting, Ally, Ryan and Toby very promising.

A Great Day. Thanks to Mr Nally and Mr Sinclair.   Many many thanks to KLB for all their kindness and hospitality especially John for picking us up in the Bus and Heather for running the show.
