Kilmory v Kilchoan Football Matches

From Maggie Pridgeon

The Kilmory v Kilchoan football matches took place on the day before the Regatta. I guess that, because we were regulars at Swordle, and had got to know a few of the locals and the other regular visitors, our younger son Tom was invited to play for Kilmory. He scored a goal and helped Kilmory to win 6-2 in 1985. He is actually holding the shield in the photograph - what an honour!

My diary entry for 1986 says the game was played on Kilmory mini-pitch, Kilmory winning 5-3, with Tom scoring two goals. It was all great fun and we loved taking part amongst the locals and other holiday-makers.

Many thanks to Maggie for story & pictures.
