The draw for the Preliminary and 1st Round of the 2017 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup competition took place this morning at Bught Park, Inverness. 

Making the draw were Highland Council Leader, Margaret Davidson & George Fraser, Chief Executive, Tulloch Homes.

Details of the draw are as follows:

Kilmory v Glenorchy

Beauly v Skye

Inverness v Caberfeidh

 

1st Round (Saturday 6th May)

 

Fort William v Oban Celtic

Aberdeen University v Beauly / Skye

Bute v Inverness / Caberfeidh

Kilmory / Glenorchy v Taynuilt

Inveraray v Tayforth

Strathglass v Ballachulish

 

The 2017 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup Final – shinty’s BIG day out! – is scheduled for Saturday 30th September at Bught park, Inverness.

George Fraser, chief executive of Tulloch Homes and eight times a Camanachd Cup winner, said:

"I'm extremely pleased to see more teams in this year's competition and some attractive ties in the draw.

"Beauly at home to Skye seems the pick of the preliminary round while in the first round Fort William v Oban Celtic, another clash of National Division teams, could be particularly intriguing.

"It's good to see smaller teams get the chance to play in the sport's Blue Riband competition and perhaps win their way through to face Premiership opposition in the second round."

Keith Loades, Vice President of the Camanachd Association said:

“The draw has thrown up some very interesting challenges.

“With Kilmory or Glenorchy drawn against Taynuilt, this will guarantee that one South Division 1 club will enter the second round where they may face Premiership opposition.

“Aberdeen University who have entered the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup for the first time in many years will relish the prospect of a home tie against either Beauly or Skye.”
