Clubs gear up for new shinty season

Pre-season friendlies

SOME games beat the wintry weather as the penultimate round of pre-season friendly matches took place on Saturday February 17.

Oban Celtic 11

Glengarry 3

Marine Harvest National Division side Oban Celtic were ruthless in front of goal, beating 2017 Marine Harvest North Division 2 winners Glengarry 11-3.

This 2pm throw-up was originally scheduled for Mossfield, but wet weather led to a change of venue to the Oban High School 3G pitch.

Oban Celtic made their higher league status count as Andy MacDonald, man of the match Ross MacMillan and his brother Daniel MacMillan grabbed hat-tricks, whilst club captain Daniel Madej scored twice.

The Glengarry goals came from Nick Dalgety, Kyle MacKinnon and Steven Cameron.

Oban Celtic were without Neil Carmichael and George MacMillan but new signings from Oban Lorn, defender Calum MacLean and keeper David Martin, each played 45 minutes whilst the club’s other new signing, Dylan Cooke, was solid at wing centre.

Speaking after the game, Oban Celtic manager Kenny Wotherspoon said: ‘We played very well. Obviously the surface played a part in the game but it was the same for both teams. Ally McKerracher was superb at full centre and our forward line of Andy MacDonald, Daniel Madej, Daniel MacMillan and Ross MacMillan gave the Glengarry defence a torrid time.’

Glenurquhart 0

Kilmallie 1

The Kilmallie squad travelled to Blairbeg to play Marine Harvest Premiership side Glenurquhart and returned with a 1-0 victory.

Glenurquhart added Ally MacKintosh to their injury list, whilst it was a new look Kilmallie side with Liam Cameron and Robbie MacFadyen included.

Kilmallie forward Michael Rodger scored the only goal of the game with the visitors also hitting the frame of the goal.
