THE Glas­gow Celtic So­ci­ety is de­lighted to an­nounce Gre­gor Cameron has ex­tended his spon­sor­ship of shinty’s Glas­gow Celtic So­ci­ety Cup for the 2017 com­pe­ti­tion. The Ar­gyll-based project man­age­ment con­sul­tant has sup­ported shinty’s old­est com­pe­ti­tion since 2015.

It was also con­firmed that this year’s Gre­gor Cameron Celtic So­ci­ety Cup fi­nal will take place on Saturday June 24 at the Taynuilt Sports Hub.

So­ci­ety chair­man John MacLeod said: ‘ We are thrilled that Gre­gor Cameron has fur­ther in­vested in our com­pe­ti­tion for this year. He has been avid an sup­porter of our game and has shown real com­mit­ment to the com­pe­ti­tion and the Taynuilt Sports Hub in the past two years. I would like to thank him for his sup­port; we are de­light- ed to be work­ing with him for an­other year.’

In speak­ing of the spon­sor­ship, Gre­gor com­mented: ‘I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted to con­tinue our al­liance with this fan­tas­tic com­pe­ti­tion. This will be our third year of in­volve­ment and we are all look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to the Taynuilt Sports Hub this June. The past two cup fi­nals have pro­vided fans with ex­cit­ing shinty en­coun­ters and I am sure this year will pro­vide more of the same.’

The Glas­gow Celtic So­ci­ety also an­nounced the draw for the 2017 Gre­gor Cameron Celtic So­ci­ety Cup which sees hold­ers Kyles Ath­letic take on Kil­mory or Taynuilt in the quar­ter-fi­nals.

Com­ment­ing on the draw, John Macleod added: ‘This year’s draw has thrown up some ex­cit­ing ties which I am sure all teams will be look­ing for­ward too. Kyles Ath­letic and In­ver­aray was a great fi­nal to watch for all shinty fans, and Taynuilt pro­vided ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties so we are de­lighted to re­turn there for what we hope will be an­other mem­o­rable shinty match.’
