The draw for the semi-finals of the 2021 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup took place this morning at Dunollie Castle, Oban.
Conducting the draw was Roddy McCuish, Camanachd Association board member and Depute Provost of Argyll and Bute Council; Councillor Elaine Robertson, chairwoman of Oban, Lorn and the Islands Area Committee and Common Good Fund and Andrew Spence, chief executive officer of Bid4Oban.
Mossfield Park, Oban, will be the venue for the final on September 18.
The draw is:
Kinlochshiel vs Kyles Athletic
Kingussie/Kilmallie vs Oban Camanachd/Lovat
The semi-finals will take place on August 28 and September 4 at neutral venues to be decided by the Camanachd Association Competition Committee.
Steven MacKenzie, Camanachd Association President said: ‘It is an exciting day in the shinty world as the remaining teams can now see a clear path to the final. The confirmed semi-final is a mouth-watering prospect with Kyles looking to return to the final for the first time since 2013 and Kinlochshiel eager to make the first final in their history. In the other tie there is still a lot to play for but whatever the makeup of the semi-final it is sure to be a fantastic match. I wish the best of luck to all teams involved.’
George Fraser, Tulloch Homes chief executive officer, said: ‘For all shinty followers, it is great news we are within touching distance of another Camanachd Cup final in Oban. Semi-finals are always competitive and this year will be no different. Good luck to all the teams in today’s draw.’
Roddy McCuish said: ‘It is fantastic that such a historic competition like the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup is once again culminating in Oban. Mossfield Stadium is steeped in shinty history and the town will be buzzing come cup final day. It was fantastic to visit Dunollie Castle to conduct today’s draw and connect Scotland’s most historic sport with the heritage that surrounds us in Argyll & Bute.’
