The Oban Times - - Sport -

DAVID Hamil­ton, sec­re­tary of the Macau­lay As­so­ci­a­tion, said: ‘Could I please con­vey through your pa­per my sin­cere thanks to all the Macau­lay com­mit­tee, vol­un­teers and of­fi­cials who helped make the Macau­lay Cup fi­nal such a suc­cess on Satur­day.

‘Con­grat­u­la­tions go to New­ton­more on their vic­tory and com­mis­er­a­tions to In­ver­aray. But all play­ers and of­fi­cials must be con­grat­u­lated on their be­hav­iour be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter the game.

‘It was a great day with a great crowd. The weather was good as well be­cause it wasn’t bril­liant sun­shine which made it eas­ier for the play­ers, and the play­ing sur­face at Moss­field was im­mac­u­late.

‘It was a good game and New­ton­more were favourites go­ing into the game, but I think if In­ver­aray had taken their chances ear­lier on it might have been a dif­fer­ent story.

‘The match be­ing broad­cast on BBC Two is ob­vi­ously good as it raises the pro­file of the game of shinty.’
