Following Saturday’s Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup final at An Aird, Fort William, Tulloch Homes chief executive, George Fraser, has congratulated Newtonmore who ran out 5-1 winners against Oban Camanachd. Fraser - a former cup winner with Newtonmore himself, said: “We are in our third year of sponsoring the Camanachd Cup and it’s the third time Newtonmore has lifted the trophy in that period - so congratulations to all involved at the club for a fantastic achievement. Commiserations go to Oban Camanachd who had a great competition this year but could not stop Newtonmore lifting the cup on the day.
“I would also like to extend a huge thank you to the supporters of both teams who traveled to Fort William for this rearranged final after the first was abandoned due to bad weather. The event organisers did a fantastic job of restaging the final at short notice and supporters turned out in their numbers and were rewarded with fantastic weather and a thrilling game.”
Newtonmore’s win saw them lift the Camanachd Cup for a fourth year in a row and for a record-breaking 34th time. Drew MacDonald, Jamie Robinson, Glen MacKintosh (2) and captain, Evan Menzies, scored for the winners while David Lafferty netted a consolation for Oban Camanachd. Shinty stalwart, Duncan Henderson, who has attended no fewer than 62 finals in a row, presented the trophy to Newtonmore captain, Menzies.
“Tulloch Homes is delighted to extend its support of the Camanachd Association and local communities through sponsorship of the Camanachd Cup,” added Fraser. “We look forward to what 2020’s staging of shinty’s premier knock-out competition will bring.”
