Sportscotland continue to be the Camanachd Association’s largest financial backer with a funding package secured through to March.

The governing body's AGM held online on Friday evening heard that plans have already progressed for continued support beyond this time.

The association was able to appoint two regional development officers including Newtonmore player Iain Robinson whose focus is on areas of high population that have the potential to start and sustain shinty.

Finance director Daniel Palombo concluded: “A surplus of between £14,000 and £16,000 is forecast for 2021. We are in a very good place but it has taken a lot of hard work to get there.”

Next year’s AGM is scheduled for Friday 25 November, 2022.

National development officer Graham Cormack is to retire in early January 2021 after almost 15 years with the Camanachd Association.

Camanachd Association president Steven MacKenzie said: “Graham has done much valuable working in improving our coaching pathway and aligning it with national standards.

"His legacy will live on with the association as many of the standards and policies we have in place are Graham’s work.

“We wish him well for the future and hope he won’t be a stranger.”
