Derek Keir, Chief Executive Officer of the Camanachd Association said:

Our focus in these roles is to grow shinty. We aim to do this by support existing and new efforts to develop the game.  Shinty has overcome a huge amount of barriers to deliver meaningful competition this year and these new posts will be crucial if we are to embrace the opportunities moving forward, support our clubs and continue to grow our sport. Our development staff provide vital support across our existing portfolio of clubs and these posts will compliment that as well as explore opportunities for continued growth’  

Steven MacKenzie, President of the Camanachd Association said:

We are delighted that we have been able to secure funding for these roles and would like to pay tribute to our sponsors and to our funders in Argyll and Bute Council and at sportscotland for their continued support. The new resources will be deployed to areas of potential and provide opportunities for young people throughout Scotland.” 

Roddy McCuish, Camanachd Association Communications & Facilities Director (South) shared the positivity noting:

“This is great news for the association and for shinty as a whole. It demonstrates the commitment and continuing promotion of our game at all levels. I am excited to see the investment in Argyll and Bute. This will be a great boost to the many volunteers who put so much work into our sport every week. I look forward to welcoming all successful applicants and working closely with them in my role as Director. Furthermore, the continued partnership working with Argyll and Bute Council is essential to all we do in supporting our national game.”
