2007 DL took charge once again and began to rebuild a new and young team with several players who had spent two years in the previous Juniors Team, under the guidance of Neil Hope, which was now disbanded. Lost in one cup final and finished in the top half of the league.

2008 Continued the team building exercise, finished 3rd in the league and with our player, Connaire Yoxon, winning the league’s young player of the year award.

2009 The young team came through well finishing 2nd in the league, winning the G F MacRae Cup and the Ross Cup but lost in the last cup final of the season and Connaire (at 17 years old) won the senior player of the league award.

2010 The best season ever, finally wining the league in mid July and went on to win all 18 league games (a record in the current league set up of one division), won the G F MacRae Cup, lost in the final of the Ross Cup and won the Ewen MacRae Cup. The league’s player of the year once again went to a player from the Club; Gordon McCaroll, having scored a record 44 goals for the season.

2011 Almost a carbon copy of the previous year, winning every league game, retaining the Ewen MacRae and GF MacRae Cups, progressing to the 3rd round of the Scottish Amateur Cup, and taking a clean sweep of the Player of the year awards (Joint Senior: James Robertson & Gordon McCarroll, Young: Ben Yoxon).


2012 A year of close but no cigar. The League title went down to the final match decided between Kyleakin and Sleat & Strath, but it wasn't to be 3-in-a-row as Kyleakin won 5-2 on the day to win the league by 5 points. Sleat & Strath also lost in the finals of both the Ewen MacRae and Ross Cup. Success had come earlier in the season as they won the GF MacRae Cup, and reached the Quarter Finals of the Highland Amateur Cup.

2013 The club retook the league trophy, losing only one game all season and finishing with a massive +120 goal difference. The team also went on to complete the Quadruple winning all three domestic cups. While they were put out at the fairly early stages of the Highland Amateur, the team they lost to, Wick Groats, eventually went on to win the competition.
