Newtonmore v Oban Camanachd

Newtonmore and Oban Camanachd meet in the 109th Camanachd Cup final at An Aird, Fort William, this Saturday, September 17.

Oban Camanachd manager Iain Hay has a full squad to choose from. Daniel Cameron and Andrew MacCuish both required stitches to head cuts after taking knocks in the Fort William match but both will be fine for the final, as will young Ross MacMillan who was an unused substitute in that game.

Hay will have been pleased to see defender Garry Lord, free of his four-match suspension, get 90 minutes under his belt in the Fort William game.

Newtonmore and Oban Camanachd currently occupy the top two positions in shinty’s Marine Harvest Premiership but they have yet to meet this season.

Both found recent success in shinty’s blue riband tournament hard to come by in recent times – only recording three successes between them over the past 25 years.

Oban Camanachd’s last Cama nachd Cup victory came at the Bught Park, Inverness, in 1996 when they recovered from the loss of Kingussie goals from Ronald Ross and Ally Borthwick to win 3-2.

Dougie MacIntyre scored to bring Oban Camanachd back in the game before the same player tied the final just three minutes before the break.
