Macaulay cup draw preview

THE DRAW for the 2017 Artemis Macaulay Cup will be made live on Oban FM on Saturday December 17.

The draw will start at 6pm and will be the main feature on the radio station’s Sports View programme.

The tournament’s unique format sees the top eight placed league teams from the North and South at the end of each season qualifying for an area knock-out draw which culminates in a North v South final at Mossfield, Oban.

The Artemis Macaulay Cup was first presented by then Oban Times editor Flora Macaulay in 1947 when Newtonmore were the first winners. They have gone on to record 11 triumphs, the last in 2015.

Kingussie have won the trophy most times, however, with the last of their 23 wins coming in 2010. Kyles Athletic have lifted the trophy 12 times.

Kinlochshiel are the current holders. Their 5-3 victory over Inveraray this year was their first major trophy success.

The 16 qualifying teams are the same as last season.

The South will be represented by the following:

Aberdour, one of the newer sides to this competition, were probably given the toughest draw in the South last season - away to Kyles Athletic. They lost that match 8-0 and will be hoping for a more favourable pairing this term.
