Congratulations to Fort William Shinty Club on promotion to the Mowi Premiership. Fort William have sealed the league title in style, wrapping it all up with two games left to play thanks to a 7-1 victory over 2nd placed Glenurquhart. As that result shows, Fort have been utterly dominant in the league this season – a record of 12 played, 12 won and a goal difference of +44 shows just how effective they have been.
Fort William are in no way a one-man team; however, they might not have wrapped up the league so quickly if it was not for top scorer Arran MacPhee. He grabbed 30% of their goals this season and has been integral to Fort’s push towards promotion. There is no doubt that Fort William will be a fine addition to the Mowi Premiership in 2020. After such a great league campaign Fort William will be determined to get their hands on the Liberty British Aluminum Balliemore Cup on the 24th. Glasgow Mid Argyll stand between them and the acquisition of a cup and league double, but with the league wrapped up, Fort William can afford to shift their focus.
Once again, the Camanachd Association would like to register warm congratulations to Fort William for winning the Mowi National Division.
