Kyles Athletic Win the 2012 Camanachd Cup
The final of the 2012 Camanachd Cup took place on Saturday 14th Septmember at Oban’s Mossfield Park and Kyles Athletic won out over local rivals Inveraray in a classic 11-goal match to lift the trophy. The match was held at Oban’s Mossfield Park and the two teams fought for the lead for most of the game but eventually Kyles dominated Inveraray with a magnificent 4 goal spree.
After the game, the team came home to Tighnabruaich to celebrate in the Shinty Bar here at the Royal an Lochan for a few pints and drams with Keith, Christine, the locals and some Kyles Athletic veteran players also joined in the celebrations.
The last time Kyles won the Camanachd Cup was in 1994 and after Kingussie and Fort William’s domination in the last 18 years we hope this is the start of a run of more successes for Kyles.
