Inveraray V Newtonmore

05th March 2011
Shinty season opened again today.
I covered the Inveraray V Newtonmore game.
Pitch favoured the visitors more than the home team, but certainly Newtonmore were the deserving winners, cleaner hitting, a direct approach to goal and a thirst to get first to the ball.
I thought Inveraray might have played more balls into the wide spaces at the back of the 'more defence and make Norman Campbell's job a bit trickier, but they seemed intent on playing it tight.
Hope next week's game at Mossfield will be as entertaining as this one, and it would be great to see it played in the same spirit
