Tulloch Homes is the new sponsor of the Camanachd Cup

NATIONAL house builder Tulloch Homes is the new sponsor of the prestigious Camanachd Cup competition.

Speaking following the announcement of the lucrative four-year deal, Camanachd Association president Jim Barr said: ‘The Camanachd Association looks forward to an exciting new chapter in the Camanachd Cup’s 121-year history and is appreciative of the support for the further development of grass roots shinty which will result from this partnership.

‘The Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup will continue to be the premier cup competition for senior teams throughout Scotland and a winner’s medal will remain the single most coveted honour for players involved.

‘Tulloch Homes will become only the third sponsor of this iconic trophy and we wish to forge a lasting relationship with them, similar to that enjoyed with the previous two sponsors of this competition.’

Tulloch Homes chief Executive George Fraser, a former Newtonmore shinty player, added: ‘We’re delighted to sponsor shinty’s most prestigious trophy for the next four years.

‘It is an ideal way to conclude our 90th anniversary celebrations. Many people we employ directly and indirectly, and throughout our supply chain, are involved with shinty as players, officials or supporters.

‘We are delighted to put something back in to the shinty community in this way by backing the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup.’

George Fraser knows more than most about the Camanachd Cup. A prolific goalscorer in his playing days with Newtonmore, he was the winning captain in the 1975 Camanachd Cup final in which Newtonmore defeated Kyles Athletic 1-0 at Fort William following a 3-3 draw at Kingussie. That season he also skippered the team to victory in the the Macaulay and Mac

Tavish cups. He went on to gain three successive Camanachd Cup winners medals in 1977, 1978 and 1979 followed by two in succession in 1981 and 1982 and again in 1985, when his club won the ‘grand slam’, and 1986 meaning he has played in eight Camanachd Cup winning teams.
