After 553 days (no that is not a typo!), we finally got back to playing competitive shinty yesterday as we travelled to take on league leaders Beauly Shinty Club at Braeview. Considering that the club’s very first league game was at Beauly ten years ago this March, it was apt to break our shinty fast at Braeview Park, although there was no goalscoring sensation in the opening minute ala Stompy!
Whilst we were on the wrong end of a 4-0 result, for a first game back in over 18 months, the team performed very well & made Beauly work for their win.
We had a handful of youngsters make their competitive shinty debuts yesterday & hopefully it was the first of many for them. Everyone got at least 15 minutes and an opportunity to show what they can do on the grass.
It was wonderful to be back doing what we love & the players deserve every credit for the effort & commitment they put into the game.
A huge thanks to Beauly for being wonderful hosts on the day. Their fans were very welcoming to us, the post-match takeaway was very much appreciated & the game was played in excellent spirits. A worthy win for a team with an exciting future. Good luck for the rest of the season & we hope to both visit & host you in 2022.
