Shinty: Bute’s Dunn named in Scotland U21 squad

Bute shinty player James Dunn has been named in the Scotland under-21 squad for next month’s shinty-hurling double-header against Ireland.

Dunn was listed as representing the army’s shinty team, The Scots, when the squad was named on Monday afternoon - although his displays in midfield for Bute’s first and second teams over recent weeks have been at least partly responsible for his international call-up by under-21 coach Ronald Ross.

The first leg of the annual international takes place in Inverness on October 20, with the under-21s’ return fixture in Ireland six days later.
