Bute Shinty Club’s second team make the short journey to Colintraive this Saturday, February 14, for a pre-season friendly against Col-Glen.

The game will be played at Shellfield farm, by kind permission of Fraser Brown, and the throw-up is at 1pm.

The two local rivals last met in May 2014, when the points were shared in a 1-1 draw in a South Division Two clash in Rothesay; much attention that day was on Neil McKirdy, following his move from Bute to Col-Glen in the early part of the 2014 campaign, though the forward has returned to the Bute ranks ahead of the 2015 campaign, in which the first league games will be played on March 7.
