On Saturday 6th October, Glengarry Shinty Club held their annual club development day, with 60+ children enjoying the days events.
The day opened with some coaching and skills work with club junior coaches overseen by Ronald Ross
Later the children, in their age group teams played teams from Ardnamurchan, invited up to take part.
In close, competitive matches, Ardnamurchan ran out winners in the P3 & P5 and under matches with Glengarry running out victors in the P7 & U14s matches.
The day culminated in the newly formed Ardnamurchan men’s team playing their first match against a Glengarry Futures Squad, in a decent match, Glengarry ran out winners with experience from the older hands giving them the edge...however Ardnamurchan look sure to be a welcome addition to the shinty leagues soon.
Glengarry shinty clubs thanks the sponsors of the event, The Glengarry Trust and Marine Harvest Community Awards allowing them to open up the club and bring shinty to a lot of new faces.
We also thank the continued hard work of our volunteers, coaches and committee for working so hard to get the club where we, the club, were also awarded their bronze level ClubMark certificate, presented to the Committee by Ronald Ross. On a day which seen the club complete their 2018 Development Plan and have made huge strides forward in development, setting the silver award in their sights for 2019.
