By Gavin Musgrove


Kingussie and Newtonmnore have been drawn together in the semi-final of the cottages.com MacTavish Cup.

Fans had been hoping that the two Badenoch giants would be kept apart with the chance of progressing to the final against lower league opposition.

Making the draw were Lewis MacKintosh from Newtonmore Primary School and Alfie MacLeod, of Glenurquhart Primary School. Lewis’s father, Glen, and Alfie's father Iain are both previous winners of the MacTavish Cup.
