The English Shinty Team is the team selected to represent The English Shinty Association and the sport of shinty in England.[2] It competes at International level against the United States but also competes in Scottish cup competitions.

History[edit]

The English Shinty Team was formed along with the English Shinty Association in 2013 to represent the association in fixtures.

They took on the USA in what was dubbed as the first ever Shinty International [3] at St Andrews in 2013, winning 2-0.

The English Shinty Team entered the 2013 Bullough Cup and was drawn against Tayforth Camanachd [4] England played well in the first half, but Tayforth's experience shone through and the final score was 11-1 to Tayforth. [5]

After defeating the United States 8-0 in the second international, England entered the Bullough Cup in 2014, where they succumbed 2-0 to Ballachulish. This defeat meant that they entered the Bullough Plate where faced Aberdour in the semi-final, losing 2-1 in Fife. This game was played as part of a tour of Scotland, with friendlies and six-a-sides.
