Bute will face Taynuilt in the first round of the Scottish Hydro Camanachd Cup.
That was the news today following the draw in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on the final day of Celtic Connections, carried out by musician Phil Cunningham and festival director, Donald Shaw.
Camanachd Association President, Archie Robertson, who was also there to watch the draw take place, said: “I am delighted Phil and Donald were able to take part in today’s Scottish Hydro Camanachd Cup draw. Shinty is of course part of the culture celebrated at Celtic Connections and makes its own contribution to the festival with tonight’s Shinty Heroes event. The draw has thrown up some interesting ties that set the scene for another exciting competition.”
The first round matches will be played on Saturday, May 3. This year’s Scottish Hydro Camanachd Cup Final is set for Saturday, September 13, at Bught Park, Inverness.
