The Oban Times - - SPORT -

IN­VER­LOCHY Pri­mary were the undis­puted win­ners of this year’s Lochaber Area Shinty Tour­na­ment for P7s and un­der, re­tain­ing their ti­tle for an­other year.

They beat each of the other five teams in the round robin for­mat tour­na­ment: Ard­na­mur­chan, Bal­lachullish, Banavie, Bun Sgoil Ghaidhlig Loch Aber and Caol.

Caol Pri­mary came sec­ond on the night, nar­rowly beat­ing Bal­lachul­ish into third place.

High Life High­land’s Ac­tive Schools Co­or­di­na­tor, Brid­get Thomas, who helped or­gan­ise the event, said: ‘I was re­ally im­pressed with the stan­dard of play and sports­man­ship.

Na­tional fi­nals

‘Some ex­cel­lent shinty skills were on dis­play from the young­sters from all the teams, which bodes well for the fu­ture of the sport in the area, and for In­ver­lochy’s chances at the na­tional fi­nals which take place on Fe­bru­ary 25.

‘Mas­sive thanks go to all of the schools coaches who give up their time week in week out to run school teams and es­pe­cially to Colin MacCor­mack for ref­er­ee­ing on the night.’

In­ver­lochy Pri­mary won this year’s Lochaber Area Shinty Tour­na­ment for P7s and un­der.
