Sports for all

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

Sports fans and play­ers were spoilt for choice on an ex­cep­tion­ally sunny fi­nal week­end in Oc­to­ber. A mini-rugby Dal­ri­ada fes­ti­val on Satur­day at­tracted a good crowd of young play­ers and sup­port­ive par­ents from Lochaber, Oban and Mid Ar­gyll. A pair of home foot­ball matches at­tracted good crowds. Camp­bel­town Pupils and Car­radale may not have wanted the re­sults they at­tained, but a to­tal of 18 goals kept the spec­ta­tors’ in­ter­est. Two golf clubs, Du­naverty and Machri­han­ish, held an­nual prize-giv­ing cer­e­monies that evening. Kin­tyre Wheel­ers Cy­cling Club held its first ever moun­tain bike time trial and at­tracted many com­peti­tors. The 2007 nine-a-side foot­ballers wel­comed Oban and Lochgilp­head Red Star. On the ten­nis courts, amaz­ingly for late Oc­to­ber, it was a priv­i­lege to watch Jamie Mor­ris and Sary Rahma, bat­tle it out for league hon­ours. In an 18-month stay Rahma has made a big sport­ing im­pact. About a year ago he faced a tough ad­ver­sary in Hec­tor McMurchy who beat him in his first ever ten­nis game. Ul­ti­mately, los­ing to Mor­ris on Sun­day, he found Kin­tyre ten­nis play­ers more than matched his sports academy-honed tech­nique.
