But they are shinty's Original Old Firm will stop they have a host of

:00:23.:00:29.

cup runs and league championships between them up. In the 1970s and

:00:29.:00:36.

early 80s they won almost every competition going. Almost every

:00:36.:00:46.
:00:46.:00:48.

contest is fondly remembered. But in the more modern era, they have

:00:48.:00:53.

not been more dominant, neither side has lifted this famous trophy

:00:53.:01:00.

since the 1980s. Now, both teams are on the rise. Newtonmore or won

:01:01.:01:05.

the Premier League last season. They were in the final of the

:01:05.:01:11.

Camanachd Cup. Kyles Athletic are unbeaten this season and have

:01:12.:01:21.
:01:22.:01:31.

But who is going to be dancing in the streets of organ tonight? Kyles

:01:31.:01:36.

Athletic face in Newtonmore or four at the McAulay Cup, a trophy they

:01:36.:01:44.

have both lifted nine times before it. Hello. A warm welcome to this

:01:44.:01:51.

fantastic final today. Kyles Athletic verses Newtonmore. We will

:01:51.:01:56.

meet some of the guys in the dressing room. First double Kyles

:01:56.:02:03.

Athletic. Who is in here? Duncky Kerr is the captain. You have had

:02:03.:02:09.

it good season so far. You must be pretty confident. We are pretty

:02:09.:02:14.

confident but we are not over- confident. We take every game as it

:02:14.:02:21.

comes. Hopefully if we play well today we will lift the cup. Your

:02:21.:02:25.

team are playing well and confidently, what do you put that

:02:25.:02:31.

down to? Just the team that being together for a couple of years. We

:02:31.:02:38.

have managed to win a lot of games this season. Give us a sense for

:02:38.:02:43.

the audience but home of the rivalry between Kyles Athletic and

:02:43.:02:49.

Newtonmore. We get reminded of it quite often but it is not as big

:02:49.:02:57.

nowadays as it was back in the day. It you are meant to say it is very

:02:57.:03:03.

big! His big to Roddy Macdonald. I am sure you will be happy to score

:03:03.:03:09.

another nine goals today? I do not care who scores as long as we get

:03:09.:03:14.

the win. It is about being in the right place at the right time.

:03:14.:03:21.

dad is in goals for you today. He was there in 1996 when the team

:03:21.:03:27.

lost, will he be trying to make amends? I think he has only got one

:03:27.:03:30.

winner's medal in all the time he has been playing, it would be nice

:03:30.:03:40.

to give him one more before he jacks it all in. I knew playing

:03:40.:03:45.

where you are to get away from them? I certainly do not hear as

:03:45.:03:53.

much from him when I am upfront! have missed a few matches through

:03:54.:04:01.

university and jobs but the team are playing well this season. We

:04:01.:04:05.

have formally lost one match so far this season, unfortunately it was

:04:05.:04:10.

in the Camanachd Cup. You have just graduated as a doctor, hopefully

:04:10.:04:17.

your skills will not be called on today? Hopefully not! I will be

:04:17.:04:23.

turning the other way! Now let as head into the Newtonmore her

:04:23.:04:28.

dressing room and see what they have to say. What I are they going

:04:29.:04:36.

to do today? Scott Campbell, the captain, the first thing I have to

:04:36.:04:43.

ask is what has happened to you, look at your face. I had an

:04:43.:04:48.

accident when I was caught in the eye with the stick. That is only

:04:49.:04:54.

the training and that is the kind of injury you get! Kyles Athletic

:04:54.:05:01.

have done well and have come back into the top of the game, but you

:05:01.:05:09.

have done well this season too. have really gelled together this

:05:09.:05:16.

season. Kyles Athletic at the team to beat. Hopefully this will be a

:05:16.:05:26.
:05:26.:05:27.

great spectacle. You won the Mick Tavish last year and another trophy

:05:27.:05:30.

at the beginning of this one, are your team getting back to where

:05:30.:05:36.

they should be? I think so. We are competing in two national finals

:05:36.:05:41.

this year and we are getting back to where we should be. Norman

:05:41.:05:46.

Cameron, I know you have had a few problems of injury but I understand

:05:46.:05:52.

you are back to full fitness question my act yes. It just comes

:05:52.:05:56.

with the old age in shinty, I should not worry about it. Your

:05:56.:06:00.

only conceded one goal against King you see on the way to this final,

:06:00.:06:09.

you will be up against some fast boys today? Yes indeed, Kyles

:06:09.:06:13.

Athletic have some thick lads up front. You are a defender and you

:06:13.:06:17.

have already played against them in the league this year and it was a

:06:17.:06:23.

drop, you expecting this to be a tight one? Absolutely, whenever we

:06:23.:06:31.

play against Kyles Athletic it is tight. Hopefully it will go well.

:06:31.:06:35.

Danny MacRae, you have scored in every round of this competition,

:06:35.:06:42.

what would you give for scoring four or five today? Air by score or

:06:42.:06:48.

one or two I will be absolutely delighted today! The team are going

:06:48.:06:53.

well so we will hopefully keep that going. You are carrying a battle

:06:53.:06:59.

scar on your mouth, how did that happen? That was in the semi-final

:06:59.:07:04.

last week against in Bury. Hopefully I will be quicker today!

:07:04.:07:11.

Has your dad giving you any advice? He always gives me advice, he says

:07:11.:07:16.

try harder and score goals will stop try your best. Have a

:07:16.:07:23.

fantastic final. The boys are looking and sounding pretty calm

:07:23.:07:25.

looking and sounding pretty calm before this final. This is how they

:07:25.:07:35.
:07:35.:07:35.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:07:35.:08:18.

I am delighted to say that beside me is a man who knows this pitch

:08:18.:08:25.

very well. He played for Oban Camanachd, Kingussie and Scotland.

:08:25.:08:29.

Fraser, let's talk about how important this game is, a team from

:08:29.:08:32.

the North against a team for the south and they are both playing

:08:32.:08:37.

very well. They are both very consistent this season. We probably

:08:37.:08:43.

could not have more contrasting styles either. Tiles and a fast-

:08:43.:08:48.

moving team who like to move the ball quickly and run with the ball.

:08:48.:08:54.

Today really should board for a good final. We have discovered that

:08:54.:08:59.

Fraser MacDonald will not start for Hiles, how big a blow is that for

:08:59.:09:07.

them? -- for Kyles Athletic. He can play full-forward or at full back,

:09:07.:09:16.

He would have been and the man to have that the back. He is a match

:09:16.:09:20.

for the Newtonmore big forwards. They will be disappointed he is not

:09:20.:09:27.

starting. Newtonmore are losing their man who got a red card last

:09:27.:09:33.

week, how big a loss will he be for Newtonmore? He is a big loss. David

:09:33.:09:40.

is probably the most gifted player they have. He has not played very

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:09:50.

often this season so they have not got the results of him. We can hear

:09:50.:09:54.

the pipe band from or been high school. We are delighted they are

:09:55.:10:00.

here to lead the guys on to the pitch. Let us talk about the warm-

:10:00.:10:08.

up. Maison Newtonmore are staying on the pitch. -- we saw Newtonmore

:10:08.:10:13.

were staying on the pitch. Sometimes a warm-up can go on for

:10:13.:10:19.

too long. You can lose your edge at it. But if they have been doing

:10:19.:10:27.

that all season it will be a build up for them. Do you think they will

:10:27.:10:32.

utilise a rolling subs today? you need the have an injury in the

:10:33.:10:40.

first have somebody can come of awe or on. There are more tactical

:10:40.:10:45.

changes to do. This will be the first major final we have had

:10:45.:10:52.

final. He has been a long time coming. It is just like all times

:11:17.:11:20.

did the in the Cup final. Newtonmore are against Kyles

:11:20.:11:30.
:11:30.:11:32.

Athletic for the first time since 1986. It is in for a -2. A quick

:11:32.:11:36.

look at Newtonmore, they were a team of the year last year, taking

:11:36.:11:42.

the Premier League championship for the first time in 25 years. Their

:11:42.:11:47.

manager stresses that each game as it comes now it is more important

:11:47.:11:57.
:11:57.:11:57.

than the last. It's was last week, it is this week and it will be the

:11:57.:12:02.

same in the weeks that come. Fraser Mackenzie, a man who has been here

:12:02.:12:10.

and done best, 2001 News did in these players' possessions. What is

it like being out there in the middle of this all going on? Mike

team do not get too many finals sort it was a big occasion. To be

:12:24.:12:29.

honest, the occasion got to us on that day. We had done all the hard

:12:29.:12:34.

work in the semi-final. The occasion in organ got two As and we

:12:34.:12:42.

were well beaten on the day they will stop -- the occasion got to us

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:12:55.

and we were well beaten on D-Day.. The tiles athletic team it. They

:12:55.:13:00.

have a late addition to the team in place of Fraser Macdonald. Let us

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:19.

have a look at the line-up as they You will find that Roddy Macdonald

:13:19.:13:25.

and Grant Irvine play right up the park next to the centre line. It

:13:25.:13:30.

will affect the formation. Peter Curry will hold the ball up and

:13:30.:13:40.
:13:40.:13:53.

play it into the wide spaces for Danny MacRae will come in and were

:13:53.:13:57.

off Cameron been a much as the Ronald Ross doesn't when he is

:13:57.:14:02.

playing on the wing. An unsung hero is Glen Mackintosh who does not get

:14:02.:14:11.

the credit he deserves. He will be a big player for then did a. These

:14:11.:14:17.

players can come and go as the game goes on. These players did come on

:14:17.:14:22.

goes on. These players did come on as goalkeeper if need be. Derrick

:14:22.:14:27.

Cameron used to be in cup finals come I he scored the fastest ever

:14:27.:14:37.
:14:37.:14:48.

traditional royal blue. The Hiles goalkeeper is defending the gold to

:14:48.:14:58.
:14:58.:15:17.

declaration of intent straight away with a shot from Glen Mackintosh.

:15:17.:15:21.

He knows the way to go and maybe an indication of how they will play

:15:21.:15:31.
:15:31.:15:38.

the game. He will also see at the other end Scott Campbell's man

:15:38.:15:48.
:15:48.:16:01.

Scott Campbell, the Newtonmore and captain. They will be trying to put

:16:02.:16:09.

a lot of pressure on Michael Ritchie. He has been suspended and

:16:09.:16:19.
:16:19.:16:21.

it did affect his game. The Newtonmore keeper has a very bright

:16:21.:16:31.
:16:31.:17:03.

sun in his eyes. They will be every time. The keeper had to be on

:17:03.:17:10.

his guard. They're keen to get off to a good start. They want to make

:17:11.:17:20.

a good start to the game. The hat to be very quick. The ball rolls.

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:39.

You cannot kick the ball in the Newtonmore. It seems to be a clear

:17:39.:17:49.
:17:49.:17:50.

tactic. Anything within 30 yards, they will have a go. Kyles Athletic

:17:50.:17:56.

will be playing pace into the area well Newtonmore are playing a more

:17:56.:18:06.
:18:06.:18:31.

Norman Campbell, picking up the ball and clearing it. If anything,

:18:31.:18:41.
:18:41.:18:50.

Newtonmore are making best use of a rolling substitutes, do you think

:18:50.:18:59.

we will see a lot? The fitness and the pace of Kyles Athletic might

:18:59.:19:03.

mean Newtonmore and may have to make a few changes but they have

:19:03.:19:13.
:19:13.:19:14.

plenty on the bench to commend and do a good job. -- come in and do a

:19:14.:19:24.
:19:24.:19:24.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:19:24.:20:07.

Athletic at the moment. That may He will be disappointed with that

:20:07.:20:14.

effort. Kyles Athletic seemed to be happy to allow Newtonmore to shoot

:20:14.:20:24.
:20:24.:20:25.

from a range. I hop -- I hope my golf coach is watching that swing,

:20:25.:20:33.

that is what he hopes I can do. It was wind assisted of course. A

:20:33.:20:43.
:20:43.:20:44.

wonderful strike from Donald. That is a great ball into the Newtonmore

:20:44.:20:54.
:20:54.:21:16.

shepherding him out and not letting him win. They have a big job

:21:16.:21:26.
:21:26.:21:44.

midfield. If anything, he over hit it. Slightly long. But a very

:21:44.:21:52.

strong midfield with Newtonmore. They may look a bit heavy, but very

:21:52.:22:02.
:22:02.:22:18.

for Kyles Athletic this season. can see goals coming from either

:22:18.:22:28.
:22:28.:22:28.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:22:28.:23:25.

it have been scoring goals from sense of occasion. The hitting is

:23:25.:23:31.

just a little bit poorer than you would think. Newtonmore can take

:23:31.:23:36.

advantage. You can see experience from Norman Campbell pushing

:23:36.:23:44.

forwards. A a chance for Newtonmore. A great stop. A double stop from

:23:44.:23:50.

Kenny MacDonald. We have said it all before, there is very little to

:23:50.:23:57.

say about Kenny MacDonald. There you have him at his best. There was

:23:57.:24:06.

far too much time for Danny MacRae to get a shot off. It has to go

:24:06.:24:14.

down as a good chance but a great double stop from Kenny MacDonald.

:24:14.:24:20.

The risk of allowing Newtonmore to shoot is fine as long as he stops

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:37.

top. Just over the goal line. In the first 10 minutes, the threat

:24:37.:24:44.

seems to be on the Newtonmore side and they have little impetus here.

:24:44.:24:53.

Experience is something that is playing its part. You would imagine

:24:53.:24:58.

Kyles Athletic had the experience of playing a big occasion but there

:24:58.:25:03.

is more experience in the Newtonmore team. I am surprised at

:25:03.:25:13.
:25:13.:25:18.

how they are letting Newtonmore take these shops. -- Take these

:25:18.:25:28.
:25:28.:25:38.

- grazing his flag. We know there is a stiff breeze at and it will be

:25:38.:25:44.

a demanding 90 minutes. This is one of the biggest pitches you have got

:25:44.:25:49.

so it will take its toll. Maybe in the second half you will see Cal

:25:49.:25:55.

that lactic coming more into the game with fit ness. Newtonmore are

:25:56.:26:05.
:26:06.:26:16.

also fit but they are bigger and and he held back. I think he caught

:26:16.:26:26.
:26:26.:26:27.

himself in the face of there. was nothing intentional there. He

:26:27.:26:33.

tried to hook the ball. This, I would imagine, you can see it there,

:26:33.:26:40.

just the tail end. Trying to get the ball. If you can trust me on

:26:40.:26:45.

this one, it is not as bad as it looks I do not think. It is one of

:26:45.:26:49.

these little injuries at a pressure point but that it leads a little

:26:50.:26:59.
:27:00.:27:01.

bit more than you may expect. A big crowd on the bank, on the hill. A

:27:01.:27:09.

fantastic feel and a great atmosphere. I suspect Kyles

:27:09.:27:14.

Athletic have the hell at the moment. I do not know what we

:27:14.:27:20.

should call it? They may have squatters right by the end of the

:27:20.:27:26.

game. Some of the local fans would take delight in telling me what it

:27:26.:27:35.

is called. It is important that Newtonmore when the centre line

:27:35.:27:43.

battle. If Kyles Athletic feed the ball into the wider areas they will

:27:43.:27:53.

be more of a threat. These are the trophy is. It was donated in 1947.

:27:53.:28:02.

A lovely trophy and very highly regarded. Mr Irvine back with us,

:28:02.:28:12.
:28:12.:28:39.

They know how to work their way through a cup final. He will not be

:28:39.:28:44.

happy with that. He had more time than he thought. That was a wasted

:28:44.:28:54.
:28:54.:28:59.

ball. It should have been a short ball. He there is an injury with or

:28:59.:29:04.

Newtonmore player now. That seems to have been a tackle after the

:29:04.:29:11.

original incident. A separate the tackle. Jamie Robinson seems to

:29:11.:29:21.
:29:21.:29:33.

have taken a knock. He seems to need to get the ball and hold it.

:29:33.:29:35.

That is where the cows are athletic effort at the moment is falling

:29:35.:29:45.

down. Danny MacRae is being given far too much room by the Kyles

:29:45.:29:55.
:29:55.:30:25.

Athletic defence. I am sure they with the ball yet. Danny MacRae is

:30:25.:30:32.

coming in across the full forward. He is not going to have the pace

:30:32.:30:37.

there for the full 90 minutes. is a better ball looking for Roddy

:30:37.:30:44.

Macdonald. A big hand from the Newtonmore support for that tidy

:30:44.:30:54.
:30:54.:30:57.

play. Here again is another chance. Look at how quickly Newtonmore turn.

:30:57.:31:02.

That was another opportunity. It came all the way from the back,

:31:02.:31:08.

from Rory Kennedy. That is another opportunity. They are racking up

:31:08.:31:14.

the opportunities now. Rory Kennedy did very well at the back there

:31:14.:31:21.

getting the ball forward. minutes almost gone. The weight of

:31:22.:31:28.

play with Newtonmore at the moment. There were great double saves from

:31:28.:31:33.

Kenny Macdonald. At the other end really the goalkeeper, Michael

:31:33.:31:42.

Ritchie, has not been troubled. He is at fairly relaxed figure at the

:31:42.:31:49.

far right hand side as we watch the game. He was suspended last week

:31:49.:31:58.

for his red card. Back in the team in place of Sean MacQuarrie.

:31:58.:32:06.

MacArthur is striking the ball well from the touchline. The two manic

:32:06.:32:16.

Kyles tactic. One man to deal with it and one man to set it off. That

:32:16.:32:23.

is about foul to give away there. did not see a great deal wrong with

:32:23.:32:33.
:32:33.:32:34.

it, to be honest. There speaks a defender! Appear she in the back.

:32:34.:32:44.
:32:44.:32:45.

Robbie Macleod is taking it across. -- approve should then be back. --

:32:45.:32:55.
:32:55.:32:59.

a push in the back. A decent opportunity for Kyles. I Bury shop

:32:59.:33:07.

of the crowd in the background. -- I debate shot of the crowd in the

:33:07.:33:17.
:33:17.:33:20.

background. -- a great shot. Do you think Kyles are finding it

:33:20.:33:25.

difficult to play into the wind? think it is more and that

:33:25.:33:29.

Newtonmore are putting them under pressure, making it difficult for

:33:29.:33:38.

them to play. Too many people up there today who are not here. All

:33:38.:33:47.

the stars of the 70s and 80s I see here. Many are encouraging their

:33:47.:33:55.

sons in many cases. Untidy play from both sides just below as here.

:33:55.:34:01.

A good opportunity again for a Kyles to pick something up. They

:34:01.:34:11.

have come from Tighnabruaich of course. This is a team on the rise,

:34:11.:34:16.

without a shadow of a doubt. They have won a cup in the bag this year

:34:16.:34:23.

already. Maybe just a little bit direct, but that has given the

:34:23.:34:28.

tiles fans a lift. They have not had too many chances in the last

:34:28.:34:38.

week while. They are trying to play a mobile forward. Michael Ritchie

:34:38.:34:45.

is very careful on his post. 20 minutes gone, Kyles Athletic in the

:34:45.:34:52.

blue shirts, Newtonmore in the blue and Whyte hoops. No score it.

:34:52.:35:02.
:35:02.:35:07.

Plenty action. Plenty of thought for the Newtonmore manager. He of

:35:07.:35:14.

all people has been here and done it. He just needs to be able to do

:35:14.:35:24.
:35:24.:35:32.

it again and where it counts. Pushed back to Roddy Macdonald.

:35:32.:35:39.

Kyles attack is around him like a swarm of bees. Newtonmore are

:35:39.:35:44.

looking at bit ragged round the back. He did as simple flick out,

:35:44.:35:54.
:35:54.:35:54.

that was all it needed. A chance, and a Saviour! Michael Ritchie,

:35:54.:36:04.
:36:04.:36:05.

goodness me! -- a save. I think that is exactly what Michael

:36:05.:36:10.

Ritchie needed. An absolutely cracking save. That is what he

:36:10.:36:20.
:36:20.:36:22.

needed. Thomas Whyte with the best chance yet. He was up to speed on

:36:22.:36:30.

it. That will have given them a lift. Just below as is a PC

:36:30.:36:40.
:36:40.:36:42.

midfielder. He will want to be doing more of this. He got the shot

:36:42.:36:49.

off, it was a fantastic save. Given that he has been suspended it will

:36:49.:36:55.

give his confidence and a great boost. The keepers are matching

:36:55.:37:01.

each other save for save at the moment. That keeps the scoresheet

:37:01.:37:07.

blank unfortunately for us but it does give us plenty to talk about.

:37:07.:37:11.

There is an indication that Kyles are beginning to get a grip of the

:37:11.:37:21.
:37:21.:37:22.

game. Just getting a bit of guidance. The goalkeeper does not

:37:22.:37:32.
:37:32.:37:35.

like to be crowded. He likes to see the ball coming at him. That man

:37:35.:37:43.

cleverly got his body between the tiles player and the ball. We have

:37:43.:37:51.

an injury in midfield. Zavaroni has gone down in the middle of midfield.

:37:51.:37:57.

I am not sure where that was sustained. The tackles were so far

:37:57.:38:02.

apart and the ball was transferred so quickly he did not seem to catch

:38:02.:38:09.

anything. He seems to have got and knock on the ankle. He is a player

:38:09.:38:14.

they will not want to lose. He has been a big part of the success

:38:14.:38:20.

Kyles have had this season. He does a lot of hard work. I think he is

:38:20.:38:30.

OK. Just a little not there. Zavaroni is on the fringe of the

:38:30.:38:37.

Scotland pool. There is a very pleasant breeze. Shirtsleeves and

:38:37.:38:47.
:38:47.:38:48.

sunglasses. No midges so far. Sandy Macvicar had to be very, very

:38:48.:38:54.

careful the air. He was under pressure all the time. I Newtonmore

:38:54.:39:04.
:39:04.:39:11.

were stick got it. Derrick Cameron has given the corner to Newtonmore.

:39:11.:39:16.

Again as save from Kenny Macdonald, he got his boot to that. Derrick

:39:16.:39:25.

Cameron has given another corner. Another save from McDonald. They

:39:25.:39:30.

have given Danny MacRae too much time to get a shot off. It is only

:39:30.:39:37.

a matter of time before he makes these count. Kenny Macdonald has

:39:37.:39:42.

saved them all so far but Danny MacRae being given an enormous

:39:42.:39:49.

amount of room here to pick a spot really. You can spend 90 minutes

:39:49.:39:52.

all-over tiles and Kenny Macdonald can absolutely break your heart

:39:52.:40:02.
:40:02.:40:03.

because he is such a top quality goalkeeper. -- Kyles. You have to

:40:03.:40:09.

make one of these steps. We have seen it before. In the Camanachd

:40:09.:40:18.

Cup Kyles were three down and they clawed their way back. Roddy

:40:18.:40:25.

Macdonald gets a corner. 25 minutes gone and still no score. It is

:40:25.:40:31.

pretty even. Kenny Macdonald has made at least three good saves.

:40:31.:40:40.

Maybe for it. An ambitious corner fired across Michael Ritchie's play.

:40:40.:40:50.
:40:50.:40:51.

-- maybe four. That was not far away! You said earlier there are no

:40:51.:40:56.

goals in this team from midfield, that is a good example. That is

:40:56.:41:00.

exactly what they will do, they will bomb up and down the pitch

:41:00.:41:06.

will be, they have got the pace, the speed and the threat. Michael

:41:06.:41:10.

Ritchie looked cool dealing with that, I do not think I would have

:41:10.:41:16.

been quite as confident. He had a better view than any of us and I

:41:16.:41:26.
:41:26.:41:38.

suppose. Roddy Macdonald beaten that time. Roddy Macdonald looking

:41:38.:41:48.
:41:48.:41:48.

for or Irvine. He has drifted away out. Here is the midfield, Robbie

:41:48.:41:58.
:41:58.:42:01.

Macleod again. He has won a corner. They are a bit attacking threat for

:42:01.:42:11.
:42:11.:42:23.

Kyles. -- abate attacking threat. - - big. Picked up in midfield.

:42:23.:42:30.

Irvine, quick as a flash. He fired it into the heart of the defence

:42:30.:42:37.

and Roddy Macdonald could not quite get there. On the sidelines with

:42:37.:42:43.

John, are you happy with the way things are going? We were not

:42:43.:42:49.

getting to the balls quickly. We have managed to turn it around a

:42:49.:42:54.

bit. We are starting to dominate more. The forwards are getting more

:42:54.:42:59.

chances. Now we have to convert those and score at will. You are

:42:59.:43:04.

forcing some saves out of the keeper which must please you?

:43:04.:43:12.

have got to test the keeper all the time. If we can keep a winning the

:43:12.:43:16.

first and second balls then hopefully if we can get a goal it

:43:16.:43:19.

usually takes a lot of pressure of the boys and they can start playing

:43:19.:43:26.

better. Thank you very much indeed. Duncan Kerr did not really have his

:43:27.:43:30.

eye on the commentary team. A chance like that when his manager

:43:30.:43:36.

is being interviewed! A snappy chance, have the chance, but these

:43:36.:43:44.

are the ones they need to convert. One of these teams must make the

:43:44.:43:49.

breakthrough. The first goal could be very important, it might not

:43:49.:43:54.

decide anything in the end but it could give us a clue where the game

:43:54.:44:04.
:44:04.:44:04.

is going. Without a doubt, there are calls to come in. -- goals.

:44:04.:44:08.

the start Newtonmore were at the top but the need to take their

:44:08.:44:14.

chances when the and on top of the game. It will be interesting to see

:44:14.:44:24.

how Kenny Macdonald hits against the wind in the second half. Norman

:44:24.:44:34.
:44:34.:44:34.

Campbell reels on it. The wind is holding it up in the middle. Here

:44:34.:44:39.

is Currie. Just a bit ambitious with that. Not getting the ball

:44:39.:44:49.
:44:49.:45:10.

before he could reach the ball There is no excuse for that. That

:45:10.:45:19.

was just too quick from Sandy Macvicar. He was off his feet.

:45:19.:45:28.

Again, the ploy of using two defenders is working. Again, he did

:45:28.:45:34.

not even look. He meal with the goal was. Should he have stopped?

:45:35.:45:43.

He is dangerous. He is a dangerous threat. He gets all over the park

:45:43.:45:48.

and he just missed that one. He is a threat for Kyles Athletic up

:45:48.:45:58.
:45:58.:45:59.

front. That is almost the same spot where he got a call in another cup

:45:59.:46:07.

final. There was the goal that some people thought went through the net

:46:08.:46:17.
:46:18.:46:25.

go through the net or not? It looks like an obvious thing that

:46:25.:46:35.
:46:35.:46:42.

Newtonmore are doing. They are They were letting Kyles Athletic

:46:43.:46:52.
:46:53.:46:56.

get into the game. We chose to go into the wind to start with. It is

:46:56.:47:03.

a tough game, both sides are at the top of their game? They have been

:47:03.:47:07.

scoring a lot of goals but our defence has been strong. Things are

:47:07.:47:15.

pretty even put up chances for both sides. Is the message more of the

:47:15.:47:22.

same? Maybe a couple of changes. They have only conceded one goal in

:47:22.:47:32.
:47:32.:47:53.

this tournament. That is all in the The substances are warming up. John

:47:53.:47:57.

MacKenzie is getting ready for that whether he will be brought on or

:47:57.:48:07.
:48:07.:48:18.

better. This is good. Newtonmore are driving forward. Kenny

:48:18.:48:22.

MacDonald could do that all day, there was no pressure on him when

:48:22.:48:29.

the ball arrived. That was good play from Jamie Robinson. Kyles

:48:29.:48:36.

Athletic had possession and he regained possession for Newtonmore.

:48:36.:48:46.
:48:46.:48:56.

There was a scoring opportunity out going to go behind Kenny. Danny

:48:56.:49:05.

MacRae is getting his opportunities. He was not far off target. It does

:49:06.:49:13.

look as if Newtonmore are going to make a substitution. It is a little

:49:13.:49:23.
:49:23.:49:26.

surprising. But the rolling subs can be used as a tactic. It looks

:49:26.:49:36.

as if John MacKenzie will be coming on. It'll be interesting to see

:49:36.:49:46.
:49:46.:49:49.

what that means for the way Newtonmore are playing. This is

:49:49.:49:59.
:49:59.:50:08.

driving towards the goal. A desperate lunge. That was

:50:08.:50:13.

interesting. Norman Campbell diving in, going off his feet. He could

:50:13.:50:17.

have been pulled up for that because if you're off your feet in

:50:17.:50:24.

a tackle it is a foul. Play at the other end now. It is out of play.

:50:24.:50:30.

The subsidy it is coming on. John MacKenzie is coming on for

:50:30.:50:36.

Newtonmore and leaving the field is a Akie MaCrae, Number 10. What do

:50:36.:50:42.

you make of that? I am not sure what the thoughts are in doing this.

:50:43.:50:50.

I thought Akie MaCrae was doing well. Maybe he has had a knock or

:50:50.:51:00.
:51:00.:51:08.

rolling substitute situation. He was the what MacArthur makes of

:51:08.:51:18.
:51:18.:51:37.

it. He has given it. He has given it to Irvine and his back out to

:51:37.:51:47.
:51:47.:51:48.

Roddy MacDonald. There was nobody there, unfortunately. It is left to

:51:48.:51:57.

a Scott Campbell to try to clear it. He of the black eye which was there

:51:57.:52:03.

at the start of the game. He picked it up in training on Thursday night.

:52:04.:52:13.
:52:14.:52:20.

He will be up for winning this, coming from Oban. John MacKenzie

:52:20.:52:26.

with plenty of O'Brien connections in the Newtonmore team as well.

:52:26.:52:34.

Michael Ritchie, that was on the post. Scott Campbell will be

:52:34.:52:42.

disappointed with her that. He had the shot on target again. Good

:52:42.:52:52.
:52:52.:53:22.

saves at both ends. The keepers at He worked it well to get it off but

:53:22.:53:30.

he did not capture it quite right. Norman Campbell could have

:53:30.:53:37.

deflected the ball but there was a feeling he had to pull the stick

:53:38.:53:47.
:53:48.:54:03.

back. All these players would be set themselves up there when you

:54:03.:54:10.

want to move it on quickly. Perhaps a player can be a bit more

:54:10.:54:20.
:54:20.:54:25.

instinctive of up he just had the feeling he changed his mind halfway.

:54:25.:54:35.
:54:35.:55:05.

He is hitting the ball an enormous when it arrives. Spectacular

:55:05.:55:14.

intervention there. I think it worked in Newtonmore's favour. Good

:55:14.:55:20.

defending from the Kyles Athletic again. What can they make of this?

:55:20.:55:30.
:55:30.:55:46.

It is just not going for them at found any. He turns. David Zavaroni

:55:46.:55:56.
:55:56.:55:59.

had to go an awful way back and he is far old eventually. -- a foul.

:55:59.:56:08.

Was a Dane End in the back? I would like to see Glen Mackintosh getting

:56:08.:56:11.

more into the game. He seems to be frustrated because he is not

:56:11.:56:21.
:56:21.:56:23.

getting too much of the ball. Mackintosh is the hat-trick man. He

:56:23.:56:33.
:56:33.:56:49.

is even used to knocking goals in standing quite far off each other,

:56:49.:56:58.

they and not marking each other. It will fall either way for those.

:56:58.:57:08.

is like tennis at the moment. Big spaces in midfield. The referee

:57:08.:57:12.

could have played an advantage there. He decided it was worthy of

:57:12.:57:22.

a free hit. Newtonmore have a chance to create something. A poor

:57:22.:57:32.
:57:32.:57:39.

a hit. That has given Kyles a chance to move to the other end. An

:57:39.:57:45.

enormous hit against the wind. That will be interesting to see how

:57:45.:57:50.

Newtonmore adjust to having the wind in their favour in the second

:57:50.:58:00.
:58:00.:58:04.

half. This is a chance. John MacKenzie scores the goal. A

:58:04.:58:12.

dreadful mistake and a wild swing. The first goal would be crucial and

:58:12.:58:16.

it has fallen to John MacKenzie. absolutely fantastic finish there.

:58:16.:58:21.

An opportunity to play it through to Danny MacRae just before that. I

:58:21.:58:25.

thought the opportunity had gone but John MacKenzie concern and that

:58:25.:58:31.

is a cracking finish. A poll would have to put him on just before that

:58:31.:58:41.
:58:41.:58:43.

though he will be delighted with that. If Newtonmore and take the

:58:43.:58:53.
:58:53.:59:08.

kept the manager will claim his up time because of the head knock

:59:08.:59:16.

sustained by Grant Irvine. Newtonmore will want to steady the

:59:16.:59:26.
:59:26.:59:37.

first but they would love another There is too much time for Donald

:59:37.:59:47.
:59:47.:00:00.

Irvine to play these balls down the just before half time. It'll be

:00:00.:00:10.
:00:10.:00:23.

interesting to see the a reaction coaching team. -- father. Norman

:00:23.:00:31.

Campbell with a diving save on the goal line! Ritchie, a bald people.

:00:31.:00:40.

Richie in one of his moments. -- of all people. What a save by Norman

:00:40.:00:50.
:00:50.:00:50.

Campbell! Good cover by Norman Campbell. It is what you want your

:00:50.:00:58.

full back to do. That has kept Newtonmore ahead without a shadow

:00:58.:01:04.

of a doubt because they were within a foot of an equaliser there. A

:01:04.:01:09.

desperate lunge from Norman Campbell as Ritchie jumped over it.

:01:09.:01:18.

That will play on his mind now. That is the danger. Again we have

:01:18.:01:28.
:01:28.:01:29.

one minute left. A chance for Kyles to get the ball back up to the

:01:29.:01:34.

other end. Perhaps one more chance in this first have which has burst

:01:34.:01:42.

into life in the 44th minute. MacKenzie and leashes an

:01:42.:01:52.
:01:52.:01:54.

unstoppable shot. -- unleashes. There is only one place the

:01:54.:01:59.

Newtonmore will pit -- the new two more defenders will put the ball

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:17.

low and it is not on the pitch. McDonald. They knew it had come of

:02:17.:02:27.
:02:27.:02:27.

the stick of Ronnie McDonald. Kennedy is probably one of the best

:02:27.:02:36.

up-and-coming shinty players. Richie going for length, making

:02:36.:02:42.

sure the ball went as far as he could. He got it out of play. He

:02:42.:02:50.

has given it to Kyles, though. Yet another chance for quite. -- Why

:02:50.:03:00.
:03:00.:03:05.

eat. Derrick Cameron says enough is enough. -- Whyte. Danny MacRae

:03:05.:03:11.

getting far too much room but then the breakthrough came when John

:03:11.:03:17.

Mackenzie unleashed a fantastic shot. The way we have it that have

:03:17.:03:27.
:03:27.:03:34.

time is Kyles Athletic Mill, It has been something of a first

:03:34.:03:41.

have? Tiles came into effect. They got a lot of good chances then John

:03:42.:03:45.

Mackenzie scored that fantastic goal at half-time to give

:03:45.:03:51.

Newtonmore the advantage. Now Newtonmore have the wind. There

:03:51.:03:57.

were some chances early on for Danny? Yes, unfortunately for him

:03:57.:04:04.

Danny? Yes, unfortunately for him he did not make the most of them.

:04:04.:04:09.

He was not really a threat to Kenny Macdonald from that distance but he

:04:09.:04:14.

is getting the opportunities and he was probably the more dangerous off

:04:14.:04:24.
:04:24.:04:29.

the Newtonmore forwards in the it is a goal. Kenny just getting

:04:29.:04:35.

his foot to it and putting it by. Danny will be disappointed he did

:04:35.:04:40.

not take one of his chances, but his key man in front so he will be

:04:40.:04:46.

happy. Tiles came back into the team game and created their own

:04:46.:04:55.

chances? The first chances fell to their winners. This comes off

:04:55.:05:00.

Richie's shoulder and then comes of the post. A fantastic shot and a

:05:00.:05:10.

fantastic save. Out for a corner. Best opportunity sees a couple of

:05:10.:05:18.

men being beat. He takes a have he and pushes it wide. It was a good

:05:18.:05:25.

chance. Peter Currie had a chance as well, didn't he? He does possess

:05:25.:05:30.

is Norman Campbell. He heads the shot and Michael Ritchie does well,

:05:30.:05:40.

he comes out. Ritchie was fortunate. This is another chance for Peter,

:05:40.:05:44.

it is a badly taking shy and Michael Ritchie is a week to stop

:05:44.:05:51.

it at his near post. I spoke to Norman MacArthur two thirds through

:05:51.:05:55.

the path and I asked if there was any chance of a change and he said

:05:55.:06:00.

he might make one or two. John Mackenzie is the man who came on

:06:00.:06:07.

and he did make a difference. confident. At this scramble Kyles

:06:07.:06:15.

were failing to get the ball away. You will not hit the ball any

:06:15.:06:21.

better than that. Sandy Macvicar should have got his feet to that.

:06:21.:06:25.

To beat Kenny Macdonald from that distance takes a good shot. There

:06:25.:06:31.

goes the shot heading to the roof of the net. Just that one mistake

:06:31.:06:37.

was enough to pick the team behind at half-time. You know when you hit

:06:37.:06:42.

it well it is goal-bound but it could have been won all except for

:06:42.:06:47.

a diving save by Norman Campbell? Ritchie came out here and misjudged

:06:47.:06:53.

the flight of the ball a little bit. Norman Campbell used dollar of his

:06:53.:07:03.
:07:03.:07:04.

experience there. -- used all of his experience there. He was

:07:04.:07:09.

experienced enough to get it off the line. Newtonmore or were

:07:09.:07:13.

involved in the semi-final of the Camanachd Cup last weekend, they

:07:13.:07:22.

were up against in Bury, here at the two semi-finals. The Newtonmore

:07:22.:07:27.

manager said this was their most important match in 25 years. His

:07:27.:07:32.

players did not let him down, it took them less than 10 minutes to

:07:32.:07:39.

get ahead. Every ad had not just turned up for the event. Sean

:07:39.:07:45.

MacQuarrie in the Newtonmore all made a horrendous blunder. It was

:07:45.:07:49.

pretty even for the whole game thereafter until the one hour mark

:07:50.:07:57.

a. A fantastic flick from a very narrow angle pit the boys in yellow

:07:57.:08:07.
:08:07.:08:10.

ahead. Newtonmore were back into it in 70 minutes by equalising 2-2.

:08:10.:08:18.

Five minutes later there was an unseemly tackle. Scott Robertson

:08:18.:08:27.

hit bedecked. It was a straight red card. Then again Newtonmore were

:08:27.:08:35.

keeping it hard, pressure, unit Murdoch under pressure and again

:08:35.:08:44.

the referee stepped in. UN mate Murdo in extra time. It was

:08:44.:08:48.

Newtonmore are who took the advantage. Glen Mackintosh getting

:08:48.:08:58.
:08:58.:08:58.

his second. Then his second in nine minutes to complete his hat-trick.

:08:59.:09:04.

Finally, just on the whistle, the icing on the cake with Newtonmore

:09:04.:09:14.
:09:14.:09:15.

as death to put them through to yet another Camanachd Cup final. -- 5th.

:09:16.:09:20.

It was difficult for Kilmallie to get to have time with no score they

:09:20.:09:25.

were to find out how big the mountain in front of them was

:09:25.:09:31.

because King newsy went ahead in the first minutes of the second

:09:31.:09:41.
:09:41.:09:42.

line allowing dos and to slip the ball into the net for a 4th goal

for Kingussie. Fraser Munro went on a waltz through the Kilmallie

defence and got Kingussie's 5th goal. Ronald Ross had a speculative

shot into the heart of the Kilmallie defence, another goal for

:11:04.:11:08.

the ahead here today, you would have to say they are on the

:11:08.:11:18.
:11:18.:11:20.

ascendancy. It is a big, big game. It certainly is, on 17th September,

:11:20.:11:30.
:11:30.:11:31.

but let us talk about today's game. Tiles had dominance through the

:11:32.:11:34.

middle of the first half but Newtonmore are being brought back

:11:35.:11:40.

in. With Newtonmore's strong hitting you would think they could

:11:40.:11:50.
:11:50.:11:50.

end Kyles back. This is a big pitch, Kyles are a fit and fast running

:11:50.:11:54.

teams. Newtonmore are hit the ball much further and are more physical.

:11:54.:12:00.

How do you think the match is going to turn out? I think Newtonmore are

:12:00.:12:05.

the favourites. Kyles have to get there are good guys on the end of

:12:05.:12:10.

the chances, they must finish them. If they get chances taking the

:12:10.:12:16.

could come right back into the game. Thank you very much indeed. Let us

:12:16.:12:26.
:12:26.:12:42.

the action. The teams are. The referee has been the coolest person

:12:42.:12:52.
:12:52.:12:57.

on the park so far. He is getting the second half under way. The team

:12:57.:13:07.
:13:07.:13:12.

in the hoops took the lead in the first half. The Norman Campbell

:13:12.:13:16.

saved on the goal line kept Newtonmore ahead just before half

:13:16.:13:26.
:13:26.:13:29.

time. Both teams are as they were in the first half. Newtonmore are

:13:29.:13:34.

looking for a penalty but there are no takers from the match officials.

:13:34.:13:40.

It will be interesting to see how the wind is used to Newtonmore a's

:13:40.:13:50.
:13:50.:13:57.

advantage from left to right as we watch it. There is another shot.

:13:57.:14:03.

Kenny Macdonald had to look lively. It is that man making the again.

:14:03.:14:09.

Fraser Mackenzie has caused a lot of trouble since he came on. He has

:14:09.:14:16.

had another opportunity. They have got the goal advantage and the wind,

:14:16.:14:21.

there is a psychological advantage for Newtonmore now. The need to get

:14:21.:14:31.
:14:31.:14:48.

another goal because there are been in the wars. I nudge in the

:14:48.:14:54.

next. He took an head knock in the first half which needed a bit of

:14:54.:15:04.
:15:04.:15:14.

their heels at the moment. They need to up the pace. The need to

:15:14.:15:22.

try something different. As we look at the pitch, we can see the

:15:22.:15:26.

Newtonmore half-backs are right up to the halfway line. They have

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:54.

back to midfield. Andrew King gets it away. We have not really seen

:15:54.:15:58.

Grant Irvine at his best to to today. A few glances perhaps but

:15:59.:16:07.

not enough to push David Zavaroni forward now. They have made a

:16:07.:16:17.

tactical switch. David Zavaroni has moved forward. You will see a the

:16:17.:16:27.
:16:27.:16:28.

red head-in the middle. If they can just move the ball quicker against

:16:28.:16:38.
:16:38.:17:07.

and awaiting his time. He has the strength to do that. He is a big

:17:07.:17:15.

and strong player. There was an opportunity to play through.

:17:15.:17:23.

Whether he knew it was there, I am not sure. They are looking stronger

:17:23.:17:30.

at this stage. That was a fifty- fifty ball in the air. The player's

:17:30.:17:40.

momentum, nothing in that. Not at all. There was no intent. A few

:17:40.:17:48.

years ago they would have been plenty of intent, but not now.

:17:48.:17:58.
:17:58.:18:07.

look for from Roddy MacDonald. On the ball at pace driving into the

:18:07.:18:16.

defence. He will drive on from the centre line. Another thing that is

:18:16.:18:21.

part of the change, Jamie Robinson has been lined man of the match so

:18:21.:18:31.
:18:31.:18:44.

Richie clears it well. This could have been a very expensive mistake

:18:44.:18:53.

but Norman Campbell, being a good full-back, came to his aid and

:18:53.:19:03.
:19:03.:19:40.

found his own man. That was a solid challenge but he is up straight

:19:40.:19:47.

away. The Roddy MacDonald, on his feet straight away. That is

:19:47.:19:52.

marvellous athleticism to see someone take a tackle like that and

:19:52.:19:57.

be up straight away. He will take a knock and get back up. He is an

:19:57.:20:02.

outstanding player. The ball moved a good 20 or 30 yards after the

:20:02.:20:12.
:20:12.:20:47.

tackle and he was after it like a forward. Danny MacRae with a swipe

:20:47.:20:57.
:20:57.:20:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:20:57.:21:41.

above his head that and the Mary flexible player. He can play

:21:41.:21:51.
:21:51.:22:31.

shout for a cake and no flag. Interesting. An interesting call

:22:31.:22:41.
:22:41.:22:47.

for Kyles Athletic. I think it came off a foot. Kyles Athletic begin to

:22:47.:22:57.
:22:57.:23:23.

trying to hold him back. This was the incident. Just a little mad.

:23:23.:23:33.
:23:33.:23:35.

Forgetting we have cameras, we can MacRae doing his share of the hard

:23:35.:23:45.
:23:45.:24:11.

is as a result of training. It is a beauty. A good ball into the middle

:24:12.:24:21.
:24:22.:24:50.

now. Cows have let the need to pick footballer as well. You can see

:24:50.:25:00.
:25:00.:25:08.

that in his tactical approach to to the midfield. It is probably as

:25:08.:25:11.

well for Fraser Mackintosh that he missed that. If he had brought it

:25:11.:25:21.
:25:21.:25:21.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:25:21.:26:44.

down, Grant Irvine was lurking put he has put in a great and solid

:26:44.:26:51.

performance. He will play until he drops. He is almost playing like a

:26:51.:26:56.

sweeper at the moment. It is a tactical change they had to make.

:26:56.:27:06.
:27:06.:27:11.

They try to play through Jamie is the second time I have seen

:27:11.:27:19.

Norman Campbell off his feet. David Cameron has allowed them to --

:27:19.:27:29.
:27:29.:28:05.

derrick Cameron has allowed them to That had to happen some time.

:28:05.:28:12.

not think John MacKenzie did a lot wrong there. He tried to block.

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:22.

That was fine, it was the after. That must have been irritating in

:28:22.:28:32.
:28:32.:28:53.

temperament get us the better of him. We may see some changes soon.

:28:53.:29:03.
:29:03.:29:20.

All around the pitch, tap -- for Newtonmore. He is going to the

:29:20.:29:27.

4th official on the halfway line. He is coming on. Interesting to see

:29:27.:29:31.

the whole they will take off for Newtonmore. It is not immediately

:29:31.:29:41.
:29:41.:29:45.

obvious to anyone. Here we are. It is Jamie Robinson. A As we thought,

:29:45.:29:52.

the legs are tiring a little bit. He possibly have run out of a bit

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:07.

of steam but he put in a cracking take one or strike. Goals in

:30:07.:30:11.

abundance but none has so far this afternoon. This is where fatigue

:30:11.:30:21.
:30:21.:30:28.

heat. Are we are beyond the hour mark. Less than half-an-hour to go.

:30:29.:30:37.

It is punishing out there. Very, very warm. The wind has died down.

:30:37.:30:47.
:30:47.:30:48.

Conditions are perfect for shinty. I do to tackle by Zavaroni. He

:30:48.:30:54.

blasts a ate up the wing. There is a little bit much on it. The

:30:54.:31:01.

referee is having a word with a Zavaroni. I am not sure what that

:31:01.:31:05.

is about. He might have said something to the official on the

:31:05.:31:15.
:31:15.:31:32.

Goodness me! Goodness me! No steps? Mackintosh should get away from

:31:32.:31:39.

there. It is getting a bit wild. It is getting a bit ragged in the

:31:39.:31:44.

middle of there. Eventually derrick Cameron has called a halt. Derrick

:31:44.:31:50.

Cameron has got to calm this down. Let us see what derrick Cameron is

:31:50.:32:00.
:32:00.:32:01.

making about this. Boys. Pan down. I know, it was nothing. Get on with

:32:01.:32:08.

it. -- calm down. I think the referee to have dealt with that

:32:08.:32:14.

right at the start when the player was standing over the ball. He

:32:14.:32:18.

could have stopped play there. Obviously somebody was going to

:32:18.:32:25.

come in and take a swing. A bit of pushing and shoving but not a lot

:32:25.:32:35.
:32:35.:32:35.

in it. You see that in all the towns at the weekend. Cameron wants

:32:35.:32:45.
:32:45.:32:45.

everyone to get on with it. So do we. No surprise there then. The

:32:45.:32:51.

coolest man on the park. I thing he will have more have to deal with

:32:51.:33:00.

before the end of the game. Piles have to react. They are 1-0 down. -

:33:00.:33:10.
:33:10.:33:10.

- Kyles have to react. The referee dismissed it as handbags.

:33:10.:33:20.
:33:20.:33:31.

minutes gone. Newtonmore one, Kyles That is what we have to call him at

:33:31.:33:36.

the moment. It has been the only goal of the game and it was a

:33:36.:33:46.
:33:46.:33:50.

beauty. No quarter given or asked at this stage. We would not expect

:33:50.:33:55.

it to be anything else. Excellent from Cameroon Bennie, cleaving his

:33:55.:34:05.
:34:05.:34:07.

line. I am with the Kyles coach on the sidelines, it is getting a

:34:07.:34:13.

little bit testy out there? Things are becoming more physical. We are

:34:13.:34:17.

becoming involved in the physical side of the game rather than

:34:17.:34:22.

sticking to our plan of getting to Ball's first. We need to get back

:34:22.:34:30.

to the basics like we were doing in the first half. At the moment the

:34:30.:34:36.

forwards are getting very little of the ball. Getting drawn into a

:34:36.:34:44.

physical game with Newtonmore, they will win it? Maybe they could be a

:34:44.:34:49.

little bit stronger with the physical side but we need to start

:34:49.:34:55.

getting to the Ball's first. It is what it is and he is looking to the

:34:55.:35:00.

referee to give his players a little bit of protection. We will

:35:00.:35:10.
:35:10.:35:10.

maybe come back to that. The ball is on the run. This time again the

:35:10.:35:20.
:35:20.:35:22.

strength of a Rory Kennedy for such a young player is fantastic.

:35:22.:35:26.

Mackenzie lets fly. Looked at in trying to get at the ball. He has a

:35:27.:35:32.

won at corner. John Mackenzie has had a fantastic impact on the game,

:35:32.:35:39.

even above the goal, he has worked hard to put pressure on Kyles.

:35:39.:35:48.

Absolutely. I thought he might have got a penalty there but he did not.

:35:48.:35:58.

An ambitious big hit. It did not work for John Mackenzie that time.

:35:58.:36:08.
:36:08.:36:10.

That was as likely wasted chance. - - a slightly wasted chance. Norman

:36:10.:36:14.

McArthur the Newtonmore coaches with me on the sidelines. You must

:36:14.:36:21.

be fairly pleased with the way it is going? They are obviously the

:36:21.:36:25.

effect her side but I think we are stronger. We need to get that

:36:25.:36:35.
:36:35.:36:36.

second goal at to tell the game off. -- Celt the game off. Do you think

:36:36.:36:42.

the game needs to be stronger? Certainly not. Shinty is a man's

:36:42.:36:52.

game. In the first have you said you might make changes and you get,

:36:52.:36:56.

that man came on and scored the goal, any other change is coming

:36:56.:37:06.
:37:06.:37:06.

up? No. An interesting analysis. It is a man's game. I think he is

:37:06.:37:13.

right about the referee. Far too many referees these days what they

:37:13.:37:19.

at all! It is a physical game and Norman MacArthur is right. You are

:37:19.:37:24.

maybe making an bit too much of it. There was an incident earlier than

:37:24.:37:30.

the referee could have dealt with. There is a McDonald's down the wing.

:37:30.:37:39.

He has been well pleased today. Steven MacDonald, a clever move. He

:37:39.:37:49.
:37:49.:37:55.

is hearing down the wing. He is running out of puff now. Zavaroni.

:37:55.:38:05.
:38:05.:38:07.

A bit of creativity in midfield, Zavaroni. Irvine of. A spare man in

:38:07.:38:16.

midfield from Kyles. Good play from 10. The keeper had to put his hand

:38:16.:38:26.
:38:26.:38:26.

to it, it is blocked! A chance for Kyles but it is out. That was a

:38:26.:38:34.

good chance. They are getting these chances. Richie should have

:38:34.:38:42.

possibly just not that wide. Even the match officials are having

:38:42.:38:49.

trouble in the sun now. Kyles are looking for a throw-in. Here it

:38:49.:38:57.

comes. Into the heart of the defence. Acute, good chance for

:38:57.:39:07.
:39:07.:39:10.

Kyles. It was Irvine. Irvine was unlucky. He was unmarked at the

:39:10.:39:17.

back post. That should have been on target. That was room enough to

:39:17.:39:27.
:39:27.:39:32.

fill stop it needs to count. 10 has got his second win now. That is a

:39:32.:39:39.

good intervention. Irvine at the back. He looks like getting it away

:39:40.:39:45.

but he has got no help. They play and unlucky with the way it came

:39:45.:39:51.

out. In the middle of the field there is some cramp. Cameron Vinay

:39:51.:39:58.

is beginning to feel in the pace. He was down stretching his muscles.

:39:58.:40:08.
:40:08.:40:42.

about today once it is all over, no doubt it. Mackenzie getting at

:40:42.:40:52.
:40:52.:40:52.

topping two from derrick Cameron. - - talking to. The temperature is

:40:52.:41:00.

getting to John Mackenzie. This is then the best traditions of the

:41:00.:41:09.

Newtonmore and Kyles clashes. It is then no means over. The call came

:41:09.:41:19.
:41:19.:41:37.

from John Mackenzie in 4-4 minutes. hated that goal coming in at his

:41:37.:41:41.

feet after what happened in the first Taff. It is not the ball he

:41:41.:41:47.

would have wanted to deal with but he dealt with it well. The sun was

:41:47.:41:52.

at his back rather than in his eyes, I think that made a difference.

:41:52.:41:58.

Fraser Macdonald, who failed a late fitness test, is standing on the

:41:58.:42:08.

touchline. I wonder if we will see them. Irvine at speed, into the box,

:42:08.:42:14.

of what a tackle from Fraser Mackintosh! A brilliant tackle!

:42:14.:42:20.

Maybe he should have hit it first time? That was a chance, he might

:42:20.:42:28.

live to regret that one. I great clearance by Fraser Mackintosh.

:42:28.:42:38.
:42:38.:42:39.

long arms save Newtonmore there without a doubt. That is dangerous

:42:39.:42:49.
:42:49.:42:54.

territory. That is what cost Kyles their goal. Currie. Again and again

:42:54.:43:02.

at chance for Kyles. Bad marking. Have effect. That was another

:43:02.:43:08.

chance they're, the need to take one of these. Just unlucky. They

:43:08.:43:13.

are getting chances now and the need to take them. The chances are

:43:13.:43:19.

clearly coming for Kyles. They are putting the pressure on. They are

:43:19.:43:24.

standing as close as they can in front of the keeper trying to put

:43:24.:43:32.

him off. This is all part and parcel of the game. It is an

:43:32.:43:36.

interesting tactic, they feel they can put pressure on the Newtonmore

:43:36.:43:46.
:43:46.:43:48.

goalkeeper. A hit from MacArthur, Duncan Kerr gets it into the danger

:43:48.:43:56.

area but Norman Campbell knows what to do with that. Here is Irvine at

:43:56.:44:01.

the other end. Man of the match in the Camanachd Cup final two years

:44:01.:44:11.
:44:11.:44:12.

ago. Here is a chance for Newtonmore are at the other end!

:44:12.:44:21.

Benny to not take it. There that have been Danny MacRae, who knows!

:44:21.:44:26.

Just our poor ball from Irvine. It has not worked for Grant Irvine

:44:26.:44:35.

this afternoon at all. MacArthur looking for a Mackenzie. Cameroon

:44:35.:44:45.
:44:45.:44:46.

Benny will not get a greater chance to possibly kill the tie. --

:44:46.:44:56.
:44:56.:45:09.

Cameron Binnie. Attire differ from field. He has been in many

:45:10.:45:16.

positions. There has been a shift throughout the team. They make move

:45:16.:45:20.

him again. They have been quite flexible with the way they move

:45:20.:45:30.
:45:30.:45:30.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:45:30.:46:18.

anyone who takes on Kyles Athletic. It could all come down to a mistake.

:46:18.:46:28.
:46:28.:46:30.

Could it go to extra-time and penalties? There is some poor hit

:46:30.:46:40.

ting now. The heat has got to some of the players, it is sapping their

:46:40.:46:50.
:46:50.:47:01.

around. A Porsche there. There are many tired players. John McCain

:47:01.:47:10.

also looks tired. The boys are getting cramp in the back. Bottles

:47:10.:47:19.

of water flying everywhere. There is a fitness man in the middle who

:47:19.:47:29.
:47:29.:47:50.

looks like he could do another 90 for Kyles Athletic to find a goal.

:47:50.:47:57.

Some injury-time, but very little. There is one goal in it at this

:47:57.:48:07.
:48:07.:48:45.

stage. It was a strike by John defence. A great tackle again. It

:48:45.:48:55.
:48:55.:49:17.

looks as if Callum Binnie will be this quickly. The skipper on the

:49:17.:49:27.

attack. He turns it in. He blasts it and he had options but the

:49:27.:49:33.

striker's instinct took over. tried to work it back. He would be

:49:33.:49:43.
:49:43.:49:43.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:49:43.:50:35.

opportunity, they have not managed to be on target. They may regret

:50:35.:50:45.
:50:45.:51:11.

these at the end. A good block as difference of opinion with Kyles

:51:11.:51:16.

Athletic was that they cannot give him a piece of paper with the

:51:16.:51:25.

player's name to get him on the field. It appears they have not

:51:25.:51:35.
:51:35.:51:35.

brought their substitutes card. We have found a bit of paper.

:51:35.:51:45.
:51:45.:51:53.

Meanwhile, Ritchie is under is Danny MacRae. He had men wide.

:51:53.:52:03.
:52:03.:52:10.

still being done. The Bank of England is crashing and the economy

:52:10.:52:16.

is best. Carrots have let it do not have a bit of paper to put their

:52:16.:52:26.
:52:26.:52:39.

the head knock. He has not really got into the game. I cannot

:52:39.:52:43.

understand that one. He is one of their key players for that he is

:52:43.:52:50.

not happy coming off. He is still one of the players you would look

:52:50.:53:00.
:53:00.:53:07.

at to get back into this game. He that twice. He had to look smartish

Was a player offside when the ball went in? The answer is it does not

:54:43.:54:51.

matter because the goal has been given. A couple of minutes of

injury time left and three minutes left on the clock. Here we go again.

The famous Kyles Athletic revival. On the bench, one of their great.

Probably as excited as anyone on the pitch at the moment as to what

happened in the last minute. You could not make a debt of up it

The Newtonmore bench absolutely time and even penalties in the

minutes added. Very few injuries in the whole game. The whole game

played in Great spirit. Now, they have to dig deeper than ever. Poole

has got the bottle? John MacKenzie goes in. The captain leading from

:57:46.:57:56.

stolen the final. It has gone home to Kyles Athletic. He does very

:58:12.:58:22.
:58:22.:58:23.

well here. It shows how quickly a shinty match can turn. To will my

:58:23.:58:29.

right, they are ecstatic. To my left, Newtonmore at stand. Goodness

:58:29.:58:36.

me. We have maybe a couple of minutes left. Kyles Athletic have

:58:36.:58:41.

to defend this and Newtonmore have to throw the kitchen sink at it.

:58:41.:58:50.

What a result this is going to be. They have already clinched a kept,

:58:50.:59:00.
:59:00.:59:03.

the Glasgow Celtic society Cup. The legs are going. The game has gone

:59:13.:59:16.

from Newtonmore and Kyles Athletic have taken the Artemis MacAulay Cup

:59:16.:59:25.

in a most dramatic fashion. Kyles Athletic, a mixture of relief and

:59:25.:59:33.

enjoyment and excitement. How on earth did they pull that off?

:59:33.:59:38.

tough to pick one word for that but it is unbelievable. There were

:59:38.:59:45.

opportunities at both ends. Possibly, Newtonmore were at

:59:45.:59:53.

fatigue in the last 10 minutes. Kyles Athletic net in to take it at

:59:53.:00:03.
:00:03.:00:07.

the end. Fantastic scenes. I said before today that they would be

:01:16.:01:16.

Athletic. They made a remarkable recovery today. Dr A team of

:01:16.:01:21.

tremendous character. Kyles might be the team to dominate for the

next few years because they are young and the have the ability.

:01:28.:01:35.

John Mackenzie came on from -- for Newtonmore in the first Taff and

into the roof of the net. At that time of the match it was a great

:01:53.:02:03.
:02:03.:02:12.

One player was saying that Kyles were being drawn into the physical

:02:12.:02:19.

game. They have great character about them, they are never beat.

:02:19.:02:27.

There were a few incidents where there was a bit of heat but it all

:02:27.:02:35.

canned down again and they kept plugging away. It proved that

:02:35.:02:39.

Duncky Kerr was a dangerous player and Roddy Macdonald, the chances

:02:39.:02:45.

fell to them. Roddy Macdonald, come in and speak to us. You must be

:02:45.:02:54.

pretty chuffed with that. Yes, it was amazing. I am speechless will

come up first. His team today had no failures. Michael Ritchie, the

:05:04.:05:12.

goalkeeper, Norman Campbell, the disconsolate Newtonmore or players.

:05:12.:05:16.

It is very, very difficult to go through this part of the ceremony

:05:16.:05:25.

when you have given everything and made no mistakes really. They lost

:05:25.:05:31.

their to a fantastic finish and maybe one of these days they will

:05:31.:05:39.

not begrudge it. There is a great respect between both teams. John

:05:39.:05:45.

Mackenzie who got the goal in four to four minutes. That, for such a

:05:45.:05:50.

long time, look like it would get the trophy to Newtonmore. They

:05:50.:05:56.

still have the lead to look forward to. I would not write them off yet.

:05:56.:06:00.

They have the Camanachd Cup final on 17th September to look forward

:06:00.:06:10.
:06:10.:06:19.

to. The losing captain is being presented. Now the referee, who had

:06:19.:06:26.

a splendid game. The up-and- coming referee of the year, he will

:06:26.:06:35.

forever treasure that title. He's certainly proved today that he can

:06:35.:06:40.

handle the biggest of occasions. He has done an international match

:06:40.:06:49.

already. There is more to come from Mr Cameron. Quite rightly so.

:06:49.:06:56.

Robbie Macleod of Kyles is the man of the match. It is difficult to

:06:56.:07:00.

argue with anybody chosen to Dave really because there were a lot of

:07:00.:07:08.

people who excel. Robin Macleod maybe not one of the biggest names

:07:08.:07:14.

in the Kyles team but he did have power of work in the midfield. Now,

:07:14.:07:23.

the captain, he is not getting his hands on the trophy just yet. Kenny

:07:23.:07:33.
:07:33.:07:40.

Macdonald it. -- Kenny Macdonald picking up his medal. Donald Irvine.

:07:40.:07:50.
:07:50.:07:55.

The rest of the defenders. Every man on tired legs, I can tell. They

:07:55.:08:00.

are quick enough to be able to step up on to a little stage that has

:08:00.:08:07.

been created. It doesn't stop Grant Irvine who was disappointed when he

:08:08.:08:17.
:08:18.:08:22.

was taken off in no doubt. That is not the last medal he will get. The

:08:23.:08:27.

substitutes who did not get on, unfortunately for them, they did

:08:28.:08:33.

not get a game, but at the end of the day the substitutes were used

:08:33.:08:42.

well. Now the big moment. Dumping her lips D MacAulay Cup for a Kyles

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:09:03.

:09:03.:09:12.

Our floor manager is a hard man. This man wants to go and celebrate

:09:12.:09:17.

but he has been brought to us. How does it feel? Unbelievable, I

:09:17.:09:22.

cannot describe how did it is. got to Newtonmore it had the match,

:09:22.:09:28.

you were getting drawn into a physical battle, but you manage to

:09:28.:09:34.

pull it out the back. We were struggling but we managed to pull

:09:34.:09:41.

it back and get the goals in the end. The showing designs in the

:09:41.:09:45.

Scottish Cup final when they came back to making it the each and were

:09:45.:09:51.

unlucky to lose it for a-3. They have got the trophies to show what

:09:52.:09:59.

they can do. To be honest I thought our chance had gone because I was

:09:59.:10:04.

then and had messed, the ball came back out and went through a few

:10:04.:10:08.

players, I was glad to see it hitting the back of the net. What

:10:08.:10:15.

does it feel like to win that trophy, undoubtedly your tea man on

:10:15.:10:20.

the up, you must have great confidence going forward. -- your

:10:20.:10:26.

team are on the up. It does give us confidence but we have a small

:10:26.:10:32.

squad compared to other teams. To have got so far is unbelievable,

:10:32.:10:37.

but we will keep fighting to the end. I will let you go back to your

:10:37.:10:42.

team to celebrate but congratulations. Well done.

:10:42.:10:51.

Excellent effort. What can you say about Duncky Kerr? A little guy up

:10:51.:10:56.

against big men in Newtonmore. He turned it around a do get them back

:10:56.:11:03.

in the match and it was that 2-1 victory. Now, the man-of-the-match,

:11:03.:11:09.

how does that feel? It is great. We dug in and tell the end and did not

:11:09.:11:16.

give up. We thought you were out of this. We just did not get up, we

:11:16.:11:23.

got going right to the end and got what we deserve. You were a wee bit

:11:23.:11:27.

smash-and-grab at the end but that does not matter, it will go down in

:11:27.:11:32.

the end that you guys won the trophy. I thought we thoroughly

:11:32.:11:37.

deserved it. What about your goalkeeper? He has been around for

:11:37.:11:43.

a long time. He just keeps doing it, he keeps going, he to be here

:11:43.:11:48.

another year yet. Do you think Quest at work he puts the average

:11:48.:11:55.

age of the team up! He is still fabulous, as he has still got it,

:11:55.:12:02.

still as the eye. Well done. Let us put this in context. With that

:12:03.:12:08.

young team doing so well, two trophies this season, a great

:12:08.:12:14.

future for them? They are very bright. Sometimes you get the

:12:14.:12:19.

ability and not the attitude but they have got it all going for them.

:12:19.:12:24.

There they can keep showing the discipline and key their fitness up,

:12:24.:12:29.

then it is all the it for them to take. Now let us get Kenny

:12:29.:12:36.

Macdonald in here just now. Congratulations. We believe it is

:12:36.:12:41.

your second winner's title in a fairly long career? Two in 30 years

:12:42.:12:46.

is not very good! I am glad to get that today. It did not look like

:12:46.:12:50.

coming on a long while but I thought it be to get one goal there

:12:50.:12:56.

would be a chance. And you live is the one who got the winner. He is

:12:56.:13:02.

fairly good at that I have to say. I was never did at getting yet in

:13:02.:13:12.
:13:12.:13:15.

the net. You are certainly good at keeping it out. Congratulations.

:13:15.:13:22.

Thoroughly deserved. Well played. Did man. Newtonmore, the Camanachd

:13:22.:13:27.

final is coming up, defeated finalists here, will that make them

:13:27.:13:34.

more determined? I think so. They got beat today but they are in the

:13:34.:13:39.

finals against their biggest rivals and they still have a chance of the

:13:39.:13:44.

week. They still have a lot to play for this season's. Do not forget

:13:44.:13:51.

the Camanachd Cup final is coming up on 17th September. It will be

:13:51.:13:56.

live here on BBC Two Scotland. The defeated finalists today take on

Kyles Athletic and Newtonmore, two of the biggest names in Shinty, go head-to-head for the 2011 Artemis MacAulay Cup Final.

They are two of the most decorated clubs in the sport, but for all their historic success, neither side has won this competition since the Eighties. Today both teams are now back to their best and will be desperate to lift the MacAulay Cup for the 10th occasion.
