Lewis Youths to play KLB | November/December Update

November 5th, 2015 No comments

A mixed-gender Lewis Camanachd youth side will travel to play Kinlochbervie on Saturday 14th November. We also hope to have a tournament for all youth age groups against KLB in the New Year.

The club hopes to put in a strong representation to the Men’s 5K on Saturday 21st November – this is an important event for the club every year and helps raise awareness about male cancers as well as funds to help fight the disease.

Hopefully there will be an opportunity for an U14 and Primary team to travel to Uist on Saturday 28th November. The introduction of RET will facilitate more inter-island linkages.

On Saturday 5th December there will be a come-and-try shinty session in Ionad Spors Leodhais for school age children taken by Camanachd Leodhais first team players.  This will be open to all children, whether they have played shinty or not and equipment will be provided. Times TBC.

Camanachd Leodhais are happy to announce the finalised management team and committee for the 2016 season.

Duncan MacIntyre has been appointed manager and has reappointed Kenny Murray and Paul Duke to the captaincy and the vice-captaincy. This is the first time that any individual has retained the captaincy in the club’s history. Duncan has also taken the radical step of appointing Eoghan Stewart to the role of Head of Youth Development. This role will drive forward shinty development in Lewis & Harris and hopefully prepare the way for more youth players to make the step up to the senior team.

Club Captain. : Kenny Murray.
Vice Captain. : Paul Duke.
Fitness Coach : Will Church.
Assistant Coach. : Ally Lamont.
Head of Youth Development: Eoghan Stewart.
Youth Coaches : Al Reed and Graham Cay.

Duncan said, “We have a very strong Team in place for the Season ahead. I am particularly pleased that with the addition of a “Head of Youth Development ” in place for the first time, we can look forward to a bright future for the Club with exciting new home grown Shinty Players making the step up to the Senior Squad.”
