Kyles got off to a solid, if little rusty start against old foes Oban Camanachd.
Kyles started brightly and after only eight minutes Dunkie Kerr ran on to a through ball to drive a fine strike into the back of the net, the Oban keeper had no chance, this was just the start Kyles were looking for.
Anyone expecting a glut of goals after the early breakthrough, was to be disappointed as play went from end to end, with few chances being created.
In truth the hitting from both teams looked a little rusty, but it’s to be expected so early into the season.
The game sprang into life on thirty nine minutes, when a fine through ball from Euan Campbell, saw Roddy Macdonald beat the keeper to the ball and flick it into the net to open his account.
Not content with setting one up, only two minutes later Euan Campbell found himself in a bit of space and cracked an unstoppable shot high past the Oban keeper.

The second half saw Kyles have a lot of the play and create plenty of shooting chances, however the forwards failed to test the keeper often enough despite getting into good positions.
Euan Campbell who can be very happy with the impact he had on the game, was replaced by debutant Roberto Zavaroni. Roberto looked strong and powerful and should be a good addition to the squad.
Zac Coley who had a solid game at half back made way for the returning Sandy Macvicar who will be glad for a little game time after missing the whole of last season through injury. Sandy adds steel to the backline and was missed last year.
The only goal of the second half went to the visitors with Scott Macmillan beating Kenny with a fiercly struck shot after eighty three minutes. It was however to little to late for the side from Oban and Kyles saw out the game for a deserved victory.
All in all a good day at the office, a few players looked a little rusty but everyone showed the correct attitude, which bodes well for the rest of the season.
Kyles 2nd Team v Tayforth
Kyles took a mixture of youth and expierance on the journey to Musselbrugh to face Tayforth.
It turned out an easy win for the Kyles second team, with the expierianced Dave Martin netting a hatrick despite having no pre season. Chris Moss and player manager Dunder also found the net, but special mentions must go to Max Carr and Scott Macdonald who despite their tender years grabbed a goal each.
A good seven nil win sees the boys head the division, also the manager got the chance to give a good few of the youngsters game time, which bodes well for the future.
Well done all.
