The club travelled to face friends and neighbours Skye Camanachd for the John ‘Kaid’ Maclean Cup on Saturday.

They faced a strong Skye reserve side which also featured former Scotland U21 Jordan Murchison who is returning from injury. Murchison got the hosts off to a strong start with a couple with Cameron MacKay and a Marcus Scott brace making it 5-0 at half-time.

Daniel Morrison grabbed a second half hat-trick with Skye skipper Sam MacPhee getting the other. MacPhee lifted the trophy at the end of the game.

Despite the scoreline, there were some good passages of play from our side and there was strong battling attitude which will do the side well in the North Division Two campaign ahead.

Thank you to Skye Camanachd as always for the invitation and for their support over the years, adn we look forward to renewing acquaintances yet again in the years ahead.

John “Kaid” MacLean Cup 2019 – Saturday 16 February

Lewis captain on the ball against Skye

Camanachd Leòdhais will travel to Portree to play Skye Camanachd seconds for the John “Kaid” MacLean Cup this Saturday. Leòdhas played Skye for the “Kaid” in 2016, going down to a 3-0 defeat. The “Kaid” is a handsome trophy which was revived for Skye’s commemoration of the Battle of Festurbert in 2015, where it was won by Kingussie.

The two clubs haven’t met since the Mòd Cup in Shawbost in 2016 which also finished 3-0 in the Sgitheanaich’s favour, although the two clubs were supposed to contest the “Kaid” in 2017 but weather led to its cancellation.

The 2019 John “Kaid” MacLean Cup throw-up at 2.30pm (TBC) Pàirc nan Laoch, Portree.
