Details of Bute Shinty Club’s first pre-season friendly were announced on Tuesday.

Bute’s second team will face Col-Glen in Glendaruel on Saturday, February 16, with a 1pm throw-up.

The pre-season meeting between the two local rivals has become an annual tradition in recent years - in 2012 the teams played out a 2-2 friendly draw in Glendaruel, three weeks before locking horns in the opening league match of the season, a fixture played at Maymore farm which Col-Glen won 3-1.

Further Bute friendly details will be published on this site as soon as they’re announced.
