Let's play shinty! Fixture lists released

shintySHINTY fans’ appetites have been well and truly whetted today with the release of new season fixtures — including derby day clashes and legendary showdowns.

Fixtures begin on March 1 with any changes being flagged up on the website of shinty’s governing body, The Camanachd Association, at www.shinty.com

The new league structure includes the introduction of the Marine Harvest National League.
