Camanchd Cup: High stakes as Kingussie and Lovat tussle to join Kinlochshiel in final

The stakes are high as Kingussie and Lovat clash in the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup semi-finals in Fort William.

The final of the Camanchd Cup takes place in two weeks time.

Kieran MacPherson is the Kings’ main doubt whilst Lovat should be along usual lines. The winners will battle it out with Kinlochshiel for shinty’s most coveted prize in a fortnight.

Kinlochshiel are off to Strathglass in the MacTavish Cup quarter-finals. Scotland full back Finlay MacRae is doubtful for Shiel after sustaining a leg injury in last weekend’s Camanachd Cup semi-final win. However fellow defender Mark MacDonald is nearing a return to action.
