The event will see the sport’s top talent take to the field with the Fraser MacPhee Memorial Cup (U14s) at noon and the Under 17 encounter at 2pm.

Camanachd Association Youth Director Willie MacDonald, said, “The coaches across all four squads have had some tough choices to make in selecting this year’s squads; there is undoubtedly an abundance of talent out there.

"It is also especially pleasing to see the progression a number of players have made from Under 14, to Under 17 and then to the Under 21 national squad over the past few years, so the importance of this event to a player’s pathway is clear to see.”

Flying the flag for the strath will be (under 14 level): Hope Borthwick (Kingussie) and Taeghan Macleod (also Kingussie).

And in North Under 17 squad are: Declan Brannan (Newtonmore); Cammy Leiper (Kingussie); Struan Robertson (Kingussie); Sorley Thomson (Newtonmore) and Struan Ross (Newtonmore).
