Skye win MOWI National Division

Congratulations to Skye Camanachd who lifted the MOWI National Division title after a  0-0 draw at the Winterton. That result means the club finish up on an impressive 26 points for the season. Victory at Braeview last month meant that Skye would definitely be promoted but following that up on Saturday means they will be doing so as champions.

It also means Skye will finish the league campaign undefeated, only dropping points in the home tie against 2nd placed Beauly back in April and on Saturday. The islanders were ran close by the Braeview outfit throughout the season but proved to have too much for them in the end.

Skye’s league winning campaign seems to have been built on a strong defence, only conceding 5 goals all season – an average of 0.35 per game. At the other end, the goal scoring exploits of Ross Gordon helped power Skye to the title, 16 in the league for him.

Skye’s promotion to the MOWI Premiership caps of a successful period for the club who have won 2 MacMaster Cups, the Balliemore Cup and the MOWI London Shield since 2019.

Congratulations from everyone at the Camanachd Association on your well deserved victory.

Skye Captain Ally ‘Cleody’ Macleod:

“It’s been a real team effort this year. I’m Delighted for everyone involved with the club. I’ve played under Kenny for a few years now and I’m especially happy for him after seeing the effort he goes too and sacrifices he makes for this team. Great to see his hard work paying off. Roll on the Premiership!

Manager Kenny Macleod:

“So happy for the boys. They never gave up after a really tough season and to be so far behind with so many games and go on this run undefeated is incredible. Huge credit to everyone at the club who has supported the team throughout the season. Every single player deserves it for their dedication and commitment.”

Chair Thomas Wilson:

“What a season! The commitment to training, shinty and to Skye Camanachd from the players has been outstanding. They have been a thrill to watch and support. We had a few injuries, bad weather and other setbacks but Kenny rallied his team and pushed these guys to get results they deserved. Massive credit to the players and Kenny, amazing ambassadors for Skye and shinty.”
