We are saddened to announce the passing of Finlay MacRae, Eskadale, aged 85 years, a valued member of Lovat Shinty Club and for many years a vice-president. Finlay had an amazing memory of shinty games and stories as well as a droll sense of humour and will be sorely missed from the sidelines on Saturdays. Our condolences to Finlay’s wife Anne, their children Angela, Ally and Morven, grandchildren Louise, Stuart, Serena, Tamara, Emma, Adam, Angus and Ashie, and great grandchildren Logan and Halle. Finlay’s son Ally was a stalwart of Lovat teams for many years, while grandson Stuart is the current Scotland goalkeeper and grandsons Angus and Ashie continue the tradition playing for the black and whites. R.I.P. Finlay.
