Shinty: Bute’s last home match called off

The last shinty match of the year in Rothesay, due to take place this weekend, has been called off.

Bute Shinty Club’s second team had been due to host Tayforth in their last home match of the year in Marine Harvest South Division Two, but the Perth club contacted Bute coach David Kilpatrick on Friday to say they were unable to raise a team for the fixture.

Bute’s second string still have two league matches to play after this weekend, away to Ballachulish and Kyles Athletic; the Bute first team completed their 2012 campaign with a 2-2 draw at home to Kinlochshiel on September 8.
