The 2018 Craig Morrison Stornoway Sixes survived the inclement weather and attracted 5 teams for a successful end to the 2018 season and also a great memorial for the late Craig Morrison, who passed away tragically in 2009 when the club was in its infancy.
With the competition receiving its eighth running, it was a team tied heavily to the history of the competition that came away with the memorial shield. Stromeferry No Ferry United, a west-coast select run by James and Crisdean MacRae played in the first competition in 2010 and were revived for the 2017 competition. They finished second in the league competition but this put them into the final against Lewis B and a goal from Rannal Finlayson, who was also the joint top scorer in the competition with Donald Lamont, took the prize back across the Minch.
The long threatened Murray Camanachd also made their debut in the competition under the tutelage of West Lothian Shinty’s Andy Murray. Andy and his boys put in a good performance with 1 win, 1 draw and two defeats despite not making it the competition until later on. Thanks for entering a team and we’ll see you next year!
All the Lewis youngsters got a great run out and showed that the future of the club is very bright.
The trophy was presented to winning captain and general shinty legend James “Ach” MacRae by Craig’s father Graham. We hope to see you all next year!
