Sammy’s indoor football league gets under way
MORE than 100 players have already signed up to this year’s indoor winter football league in the Nevis Centre.
Sammy’s Fish and Chip shop in Caol has agreed to sponsor the 2016 competition which will now be known as Sammy’s Indoor Winter League.
Sponsorship money has already been used to buy new nets, balls, a trophy and medals for the winners.
Co- ordinator Robert MacMillan said: ‘It’s great to have a local company helping towards the running costs and more than 100 players will benefit from it this year.’
The first matches kicked off in the Nevis Centre last Sunday evening with The Goon Squad, Inverlochy United, HWE, Fiorentina Turner, The Young Team. Nevis Range, The Stoaters, Doghouse Thistle Ballatasaray and Portowcy making their debut in the new league.
