ONE of shinty's most famous names are back in the big time with Kyles Athletic securing their passage to the Premier League yesterday.
Along with Kingussie and Newtonmore, the south outfit have won the Camanachd Cup on most occasions.
Now the sleeping giants will be playing in the top flight again after defeating Ballachulish 2-0 at Jubilee Park to clinch South Division One.
The other Premier League place now looks likely to be going the way of Lovat, who romped to an impressive 9-2 victory against Inverness.
That win leaves them two points and eight goals better off than nearest challengers, Kinlochshiel. If the Wester Ross outfit are to nick it from Lovat, they have to defeat Caberfeidh 9-0 in their final game.
Cala build on draw
CALA Edinburgh retained their unbeaten record in the women's Subway national league when the joint leaders held Kelburne to a 2-2 draw at Bellahouston yesterday, although the capital club had to come from behind twice to do so.
In the men's competition, table-toppers Greaves Clydesdale were on their way to play Inverleith when they received a call from Meadowmill to turn them back as the goal netting had bizarrely been stolen overnight. The match will now be rearranged.
