Who am I?
I'm Duncan Gorman, a 20 year old student studying Journalism at Edinburgh Napier University and I've played shinty all my life for Newtonmore Camanachd Club. I have a devoted passion for the sport and still play weekly for Newtonmore second team. Having an eye for both the media and shinty, I've always been keen to indulge on anything where the two collide. After struggling to satisfy myself in my search for multimedia shinty content, I've attempted to fill the gap and hopefully entertain as I go.
Am I qualified?
Although my shinty career hasn't quite reached the bright lights of BBC Alba just yet, I have high hopes for the future. As well as playing for Newtonmore I'm captaining the Edinburgh University Shinty Club for the second year running. I spend a lot of time playing wing centre, although I do tend to venture up the park towards the forward line if at all possible and will hopefully be doing so in Newtonmore's first team before my retirement.
