Bute Shinty Club’s first team saw their climb up the South Division One table halted by a 2-2 draw away to Taynuilt on Saturday.

Gordon McMillan scored both Bute’s goals, each time replying to a strike by Willie Neilson for the home side - Neilson’s two goals, remarkably, representing the first goals conceded away from home by the team in South Division One this season.

Saturday’s result leaves Bute in fifth place in the South Division One standings, though with games in hand on all the other teams in the competition.

Bute’s second team had no game this week.

Next Saturday, July 18, both Bute teams are in league action at home, with the first team facing Kyles Athletic’s reserves and the second team taking on Col-Glen.
