Lochcarron 3 – 0 Lewis

Unlucky to go down 3-0 to Lochcarron in Wester Ross last weekend, the main difference was Gregor Cushnie and a couple of the other old warhorses from Lochcarron’s early 2000s glory days – still Gaga gave as good as he got and as Tyson missed a penalty at 2-0, we could have come right back at them.  An epic trip for the Glasgow boys which invovled going back via the Balavil!

Best of luck to Crawford MacLellan who is playing for the British Armed Forces’ Scots Camanachd against the Irish Defence Force in the first ever shinty-hurling international between the two nation’s armed forces.  It takes place at the Bught Park on Saturday 28th April and throws up at 5.30pm. A great honour for Crawford and for the club. Proceeds to PoppyScotland so head along if you are in Inverness. Click on the link to downlaod a video from BFBS previewing the game.

Our next game in North Division Three is on May 5th against Boleskine at Smith Park, Inverarnie – probably the usual early throw-up time. Boleskine turned us over twice last year so let’s put up a better fight this time.

Still plenty of merchandise to be ordered and training continuing on Tuesday and Thursdays, as well as training in Glasgow.

Strathspey  6 – 6  Lewis

A game of thrills and spills and a comeback of epic proportions! Strathspey 6-6  Na Mighty Leodhasaich!  A true epic to be involved in and although we played particularly poorly in the first half, to come back as we did means we are doing something right.

You can read (in Gaelic) about our game here – there will also be footage on An La (Monday Night) – and the YouTube footage recorded by the Camanachd Assoc. can be seen below!

This is in fact the 100th post on the website and having gone two games undefeated for the first time ever and also having beaten our points total for last season already, that is a good marker for this season and future ones.

Suas na Leodhasaich!  Next game away to Lochcarron on the 21st of April.

Inverness 0 – 1  Lewis

It’s been ages since this happened, but hey we got our first away win EVER against Inverness on 31st March. One-nil and we still made it hard for ourselves but what a great day to win, beautiful stadium, beautiful weather, a great strike from Scott (even Kevin Kennedy didn’t claim it when he could have!), a great performance from Andy and Ally and a brilliant ferry ride home! Thanks to Peigi a’ Chomuinn for the Bubbly!

Next up Strathspey in the clash of the Newbies – 14th April
