Seems like a slight hiatus with bad weather disrupting training and Strathglass not travelling for last Saturday’s game, although we did receive the points which lifts us up the table, but June July and August should be non stop shinty.

This Saturday the first team welcome Boleskine to Shawbost, the Inverness-shire club have always given us a tough game and the lads will have to be at their very best to cause an upset against this promotion seeking side. We played them in the league opener and suffered a disappointing 5-0 loss.

We are also very happy that we have an Under 14 squad travelling to the Far North Sixes in Scourie. We have been unable to attend since the Lewis B side swept the competition in 2010, more of which can be read at this link This will be a great opportunity for all the keen youngsters who have been attedning Saturday trainign and sessions at the Nicolson.

Hopefully on Saturday we can celebrate a double success but we will certainly be celebrating just playing shinty after a long break.

Throw-up 2.30pm at Shawbost.

  1. Just back from Boleskine game. A really good gutsy performance and held one of the top sides for 75 mins. Pitiful, although very faithful, supporter attendance. Guys, it’s time to ask for a re assessment of Bayhead. People working with me from Kinlochsheil and Kingussie can’t believe that 3rd division side can’t get dispensation for playing on a good playing field for the sake of a few yards short on length or width.
    Granted for the purists we need the full size and Shawbost is undoubtedly one of the finest playing fields for shinty in the country – but the locals are not coming out to watch the game and this Lewis team deserves better support. That would come with playing at Bayhead. Numbers of people just passing by at Heb Celt and stopping to watch proves this. Just an observation from a loyal fan – even the savings on fuel costs to home and away teams plus supporters is worth considering. All the best for the rest of the season and will certainly continue traipsing across the Barvas moor to watch the team for now. Will take the new puppy next time to boost the attendance !!!

  2. Sadly Bayhead is not just a few yards short Alasdair, it’s significantly too narrow, as well as the situation of the rugby posts, that far corner is the problem (as is the drain), it would be great to play in the centre of town however and maybe there will be work done to tallow shinty to be fitted in soon.
