VIDEO Camanachd Leodhais Ladies

A group of Western Isles sportswomen are making history as they have created the islands’ first ever women’s shinty team.

Camanach Leodhais Ladies are set to take off with ambitious plans to eventually join the competitive leagues – perhaps even as soon as 2016 if there is sufficent interest in the fledgling squad.

Started by Alicia MacSween at the end of last summer, the new team is already attracting a regular crowd to training on Friday afternoons. Several players are also joining in with the men’s team at training.
