Organisers of Ross-shire Girls Tournament praise skills of footballing talent after successful competition
DELIGHTED organisers have praised the talents of the region's young footballing talent after a successful county-wide schools competition.
More than 160 girls took part in the Ross-Shire Girls Tournament recently at Invergordon.
Teams from Dingwall and Hill of Fearn/Tarbat Old were the big winners on the day – taking home the MacGregor Shield and the Global Energy Shield respectively.
Dingwall won their silverware after a 2-0 win against Park in the MacGregor Shield final, while Hill of Fearn/Tarbat Old saw off the challenge of Cromarty by the same margin in their trophy match.
"It was a fantastic event enjoyed by all the girls who attended and we were lucky as we had great weather," said Park Primary teacher Iain MacIver, who organised the event. "All the girls represented their schools fantastically and showed great sportsmanship and determination.
"The standard of football was very high with great skills and talent on show."
Organisers would like to thank Edwin Skinner and Invergordon Juniors for the use of their facilities and equipment, Ross-Sutherland Rugby for the use of their clubhouse, George and Mhairi MacLeod for giving up their time to line the pitches, Jake Williams and Active Schools for help running the event, and the sponsors Roy MacGregor and Global Energy.
