The George J Phimister Trophy and Medal

George Phimister

 

A silver shinty ball mounted on a burr oak base with three prongs to symbolise the attributes that the late Geordie Phimister valued most in a shinty player – skill, aggression and leadership.

In addition to the trophy, “The George J Phimister Medal” is awarded at the end of the competition to the Strathglass player who exhibits most the qualities which Geordie admired.

All teams played on league basis in age groups, points then added with the two clubs with most points playing in final at under 14 level.
Everyone enjoyed almost tropical conditions with a bouncy castle and hot food available making it a family day out.
