Dozens of eager young shinty players took to the An Aird field on Sunday for the annual Fraser MacPhee Shinty Tournament.

Primary school teams from as far as Glasgow, Tighnabruaich, and Beauly travelled to Fort William for a great day of competition.

As well as the team competitions, there were some individual prizes to be handed out as Inverlochy’s Ben Corner and Newtonmore’s Joe Coyle won the player of the tournament prizes for the P5 and P7 competitions respectively. Players also had the opportunity to test their power in the speed hitting contest

Organised every year by the MacPhee family, the tournament is played in memory of late Fort William Shinty Club youth player Fraser MacPhee.
