By Gavin Musgrove


Hopes of the Badenoch giants still facing one another in the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup are still alive after they were kept apart in the semi final draw.

Newtonmore will take on Caberfeidh and Kingussie will play the winners of Kinlochshiel and Oban if the Red and Blues prevail in their replay after their 1-1 draw with Kyles Athletic on Saturday.

The draw was made earlier today live on MFR’s morning Radio Show – Dan & Grace in the Morning.

Newtonmore and Caberfeidh will clash on July 27 at Bught Park in Inverness.

Kyles Athletic or Kingussie versus Kinlochshiel or Oban Camanachd will be played on August 10 with the venue still to be confirmed.

Both matches will be televised live by BBC ALBA and throw up at 4pm.

Keith Loades, Camanachd Association president, said: “We have the prospect of two very exciting semi finals.

"Newtonmore will be looking to reach their fourth Camanachd Cup Final in a row, whilst Caberfeidh make their first appearance at this stage since 1963 and will be looking to cause an upset."

George Fraser, chief executive of competition sponsors Tulloch Homes, said: "It's an exciting draw featuring quality teams and it sets the stage for two fascinating semi final ties to decide who plays on the big occasion at Fort William in September."
