Aray cheer

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LETTERS -

LAST week­end was a good one for In­ver­aray.

Both the Royal Burgh’s shinty teams man­aged ex­cel­lent vic­to­ries, leav­ing the sec­ond team vir­tu­ally as­sured of pro­mo­tion. The se­nior team mean­while re­vived its chances of fig­ur­ing in the na­tional league ti­tle shake­down come the end of the sea­son.

But the big one for In­ver­aray was the mag­nif­i­cent achieve­ment by Stu­art Lid­dell and the pipe band. Ar­gyll folk may be low in num­ber in the band’s in­ter­na­tional ranks these days – but make no mis­take, this is In­ver­aray’s pipe band.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Stu­art, pipe sergeant Alas­dair Hen­der­son, orig­i­nally from Dunoon, that fan­tas­tic drum­mer Stephen McWhirter and to band mem­bers past and pre­sent. But there is a small band of com­mit­tee mem­bers, spon­sors and sup­port­ers who have done the don­key work over the years and de­serve a mas­sive pat on the back for their ef­forts.
