Celtic Society final

Newsroom

Shinty action continues on BBC ALBA this weekend as the channel broadcasts live coverage of this year’s Gregor Cameron Consultancy Celtic Society Cup Final between Oban Camanachd and Kyles Athletic.
 
Coverage of Saturday’s encounter from Taynuilt Sports Field will start at 4.00pm and will be presented by Calum Macaulay, with commentary from Hugh Dan MacLennan and expert analysis being provided by Stewart Mackenzie, former Scotland U21 coach. 
 
Oban saw off stiff competition from Inveraray in a 1-0 win in their semi-final encounter to meet Kyles in this weekend’s final with Kyles having beaten Glasgow Mid-Argyll 3-0 in their semi-final match and previously defeated Kilmory by a staggering 18-0 in the preceding round.
 
As well as the live action, at half-time we catch up with Plockton High School student Katie Macrae who is in the process of starting a new ladies shinty team within the existing Kinlochshiel Shinty Club. Katie has been driven by her love of shinty and is excited about the future of the sport within the local area which is enabling the Plockton girls to take their shinty to the next level.
