Paul Macarthur, who has been the Camanachd Association Regional Development Officer for the Central belt for over six years is moving on today.

Shinty is Scotland’s community sport and when anyone leaves that community it is sad to see them go even when they are moving on to pastures new and progressing in their own lives.

Joining the Camanachd Association in September 2015, Paul has focussed his time on supporting clubs across the Central Belt and worked to grow the profile of the sport in new communities.

Throughout his time with the Association Paul delivered a number of projects including making taking a lead in a recent consultation with officials and championing the shinty skill challenge.

Steven MacKenzie, Camanachd Association President said: “Best wishes to Paul in his future endeavours, we are grateful for the efforts he has made to develop shinty in the Central Belt.”

Derek Keir, Camanachd Association CEO said “I would like to record my thanks to Paul for the years of service and the support he has provided our sport during one of the most challenging periods. Paul will be missed but we wish him well on his next chapter and hope to see him at shinty events in the future”
