London Camanachd Clinch ESL Title!

2019 English Shinty League In 2019 ESA got organised enough to run a league in addition to our usual shinty tournaments in London, Cornwall and Oxford. Cornwall, Devon, London, Oxford and an ESA development team all competed, in home and away games from February to November. The first tranche of games took place with late winter storms battering Cornwall home game victory against Devon, and some soft pitches in Oxford and Devon. As summer came around London, Oxford, and the Development team enjoyed, sun, sea and shinty down in Falmouth, with all bar Oxford finding a win on their voyages to the Duchy Late summer saw Devon hit the road, but struggled against London and Oxford, but the sun was shining on Oxford as they travelled to Bristol with a weakened team and beat the ESA development side. London would win the League with one game to spare, but on the final day of the league at Wormwood Scrubs, (London), Oxford would lose in a third place decider to the Development Team, and Cornwall would beat London in a cracking final match to end a competitive season. 2020 will see a new Bristol team join the league in place of the Development Team, with games starting in March.
