Meet the Board – Kirsty Deans

Kirsty Deans: Club Leadership (Volunteers) & Young People

Kirsty was first co-opted onto board  in April 2020 later ratified at AGM November 2020. She grew up in Kingussie and is still based there, currently teaching PE at Forres Academy. She has played for Badenoch Ladies since 2008 when the club was formed and has enjoyed a great deal of success in doing so, winning the Mowi Valerie Fraser Camanachd Cup on 2 occasions and enjoying her first league victory in 2019.

Kirsty is also a multi-time Scotland international, having made her debut in 2009 she first captained the national team in 2018. Despite her proficiency with a caman, Kirsty also boasts great technique with a  football and currently plays with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Her role as a teacher undoubtedly prepares her well for the Club Leadership & Young People portfolio she will be taking on and we look forward to the further development of our successful School of Shinty programme.
