Dunadd lift Mowi WCA South Division 2

Dunadd were crowned queens of Mowi WCA South Division 2 on the 24th September, despite a final day defeat to Uddingston 5-3. It is fruitless to argue that Dunadd aren’t deserving winners though as other than that hiccup they played a flawless league campaign scoring an average of 6 goals per game and winning all 9 of their other matches. It’s practically impossible to talk about Dunadd without speaking about Eilidh Cameron who has been an absolute revelation, she has 42 of the club’s 61 league goals and won the South Division 2 top scorer award by more than double her nearest competition. Dunadd did finish 2nd last year to Ardnamurchan who were promoted so the expectation would have been that they were promoted this campaign, however, there have been countless examples of teams falling short of that expectation so all credit to the team for getting it over the line and completing what has been a really successful campaign for Kilmory-Dunadd as a whole.

Speaking of the success, Dunadd Manager Laurene Cameron said: “We’ve had a tough start to the season only managing to field 7/8 players for our first few games. But the girls have been committed and consistent to training, working hard on their fitness, which has shown with only one loss this season. I can’t fault their dedication and for never giving up, I’m proud of them all. We have been working on building our team so credit also goes to everyone within the club who have supported us and it’s great to see all the hard work paying off. We are now looking forward to next season!”

Kilmory-Dunadd President Angus Gilmour said: “What a season that’s been. The commitment to training, shinty and the club has been outstanding.  Dunadd have been athrill to watch, playing a very exciting brand of shinty.  We have had a few challenges to overcome over the season, particularly in relation to the size of the playing pool, but the team rallied and pushed on to win the league for the first time in five years.  Massive credit to Laurene and the players for this great achievement.”
