Club unveil new Away Strip to mark 15 years of senior shinty

May 29th, 2022 No comments


Camanachd Leòdhais has unveiled its first ever away kit to mark 15 years as a senior club.

The new strips are a tribute to the strips that were used by the club in the first ever senior match v Lochbroom in February 2007.

Those strips, borrowed from the Nicolson Institute, were Orange with black shorts, and so the strip echoes those colours whilst also bringing in blue highlights – the colours of long term sponsors Woody’s Express, who sponsored the very first iconic “Dubh is Gorm” strips, and have provided several sets of strips since returning as kit sponsor in 2014. Thank you to all at Woody’s Express, especially Peter Gomez for their continued support.

Four of the line-up played in the original Orange strips; Sean MacLeod, Daniel “Gaga” Gallagher, Duncan MacIntyre and Stuart “Tyson” Campbell, and indeed four of the players were not even born when the club was re-constituted in 2006!

Whilst the new kits did not see a maiden victory against Caberfeidh in the Sutherland Cup second round match,  the club gave a home debut to Paddy Wilson who has moved to the island and faced up against his old club. Welcome Paddy!

Cabers came away with a 3-0 win. Best wishes to them in the rest of the competition. It was good to get a home game after almost three years and also after all the recent travel difficulties. Next up is Lochaber at Shawbost.

2018 Award Winners

October 13th, 2018 No comments

The 2018 Camanachd Leodhais Awards Dinner was held at the Caladh Inn on Friday 13th October. The club awarded its prizes to four worthy winners.

Senior Player of the Year was Scott MacLeod. Scott has been a previous Youth Player of the Year on three occasions and has become a key player for the first team over the last few years.

Youth Player of the Year was Callum MacRitchie. Callum has been one of many promising youngsters to break into the Dubh is Gorm first team this year. Callum started the season with a goal against Beauly U14s, but then progressed to scoring his first senior goal against Kilmallie in a home victory, before taking up a midfield role.

Peter Gomez chose his Captain’s Player of the Year as Donald Lamont. Donald was the top scorer with 8 goals. He now sits only 5 goals off Will Church’s club record.

John MacAskill awarded the Shaw Caman for Manager’s Player of the Year to Ronan Sinclair. Ronan has fought back from life-threatening illness and has now gone off to University in Edinburgh where he hopes to play through the winter. His father Iain accepted the caman on his behalf.

John also took the opportunity to thank the team for a great season, saying there were ‘so many highlights but one being the final game against Kilmallie and how despite the difficulties the spirit was incredible’. With an eye on building on this year’s progress John also named his captaincy team for 2019, with Ally Lamont being named captain and Donald Lamont returning to the vice-captain role after previously holding it in the past.  Ally said “We have to work four times harder next season.”
