Not been much to report recently, we had the Easter holidays drag on a little but youth training has kicked in with a vengeance at 10am on Saturday mornings and we are looking to hold a youth match before the homecoming Caberfeidh game on 11 May. We are also looking at sending an under 14 team to Scourie for the Far North Sixes and also we need to hold a Western Isles Youth Competition with Uist and Harris.
Back to league action this Saturday with a 1pm Throwup at the Bught Park against Inverness. The Town have much improved form from last year and will be looking for revenge after we did the double over them last year, including our first ever win on the mainland. Rah Douglas is the referee. If you’re in Inverness please pop along, even for half an hour to show your support. Usual drill for meeting at the ferry for those travelling from the island.

Remember May 11th for Homecoming match V Caberfeidh.
The team went down to a 4-3 defeat at Inverlael on Saturday 13th April. We got off to a poor start thanks to first minute goal by Steven Bellshaw, although Will Church pulled one back on the quarter of an hour mark. Unfortunately a James Rolfe goal let the Broom into the second half with a 2-1 lead.
In the second half, a lot of energy seem sapped from the game until Broom scored two goals (Rolfe and Bellshaw again) to stretch their lead to 4-1. However, we fought back and goals from Will and a cracking solo effort by Scott Murray resulted in a tense final five minutes but the Broom managed to maintan their 100% record against us.

There is no game scheduled for the next couple of weeks, the next game is due to be Inverness away at the Bught Park on 4th May.
The club is delighted to be named as one of the beneficiaries of the Scottish Hydro Development Fund for this year. This will help us develop our excellent youth work further in the coming months. Thanks to the Association and to Scottish Hydro for their support of the game.

In many ways almost a carbon copy of last year’s result, a stunning day beside Loch Linnhe, Ben Nevis in all its glory, a keeper in tremendous form, Kenny Mould making an appearance and a great first half performance which saw us enter the interval at 0-0. That’s where the similarities end because it was a great shift by the boys on Saturday, unlike last year where we capitulated from the off in the second half, the Caol side were made to fight every inch of the way for their first and second goals from Ross MacKenzie and Brian MacKay on 68 and 82 minutes respectively. MacKenzie popped up late on to take advantage of our makeshift defence at that point to complete his hat-trick in the 87th and 88th minutes. However, we can be proud of the performance of a team which was missing some regular starters against a team who have a 100% record at the top of the table. Conor was in splendid form between the posts and Innes Lamont was a standout at buckshee back.
Those lads who attended Sean’s Stag Dubh is Gorm in Inverness also had a fine time and we look forward to he and Joanne’s nuptials which also coincide with a Kilmallie game.
The club has relaunched our Facebook profile – the group is now to be reserved for club members and players but we have created a fan page https://www.facebook.com/CamanachdLeodhais so that we can publicise the great progress the club is making on and off the park.
Our Sgitheanach cousin’s also gave us the honour of being the focus for their traditional April Fool this year, http://skyecamanachd.com/news/2013-Balliemore-Cup-Final-Set-For-Lewis.htm Great to see at least a couple of people fell for it! As much as we one day want to see a senior final at Shawbost, we very much doubt that it will be on a Sabbath!
Next Fixture will be away against Lochbroom on 13th April. Please let Diablo know of your availability.
