MOWI and the Camanachd Association are delighted to announce that Finlay MacRae, Kinlochshiel, has been awarded the 2021 MOWI Player of the Season award.

Finlay played an integral part in what was a successful 2021 for Kinlochshiel who picked up their first ever Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup and
MacTavish Cup.

Finlay thanked MOWI for the award and added: ‘I’ve been playing shinty before I went to primary school. It’s just what was done up here. It’s a way of life.’

The Player of the Season is the first in a series of three awards which will be announced on video via the Camanachd Association Facebook page every Wednesday for the next three weeks. In addition nine other awards will be announced throughout the next month in order to celebrate the achievements of 2021.

Ben Hadfield, COO MOWI Scotland said: ‘These awards recognise the passion that clubs and players share for the game, for their teammates, and for the wellbeing of their communities.

These values are also shared at MOWI , which is why we have been very proud to have partnered with the Camanachd Association for over three decades.’

Steven MacKenzie, Camanachd Association President said: ‘It’s great to be able to
launch the MOWI awards with this video and my congratulations go to Finlay for
winning it – there was some great shinty on show in 2021 so to win this accolade is
no mean feat.

‘Although individual awards will be given out over the next month, the
whole shinty community deserves commendation for all the efforts that went in to
restarting our sport in 2021.’
