Oban will today hope to build on their victory at Kingussie last weekend, buoyed by the news they are to host Shinty's Camanachd Cup Final.

Gus Campbell's newly promoted outfit upset the billing by defeating Camanachd Cup holders Kings at the Dell 2-1 last Saturday.

They will now face Inveraray at the Winterton, with James MacMillan free of suspension for the Premiership clash.

Further good news has come in the shape of a decision by the sport's ruling body that Mossfield Park will host this September's televised Scottish Hydro Camanachd Cup Final.

The showcase is due to be played in the south this year and it was a straight choice between the gateway to the isles or fans travelling 'doon the water' to Dunoon.

Dunoon Stadium hosted the 2006 final between Kingussie and Fort William and is recognised for its successful annual staging of the Cowal Highland Gathering.

However, Mossfield will be the focus of attention on 19th September after an agreement on Wednesday.

A Spokesman for The Camanachd Association said: "The larger playing surface and easier access to the wider shinty community made Mossfield Stadium the preferred choice for the 2015 Final."

Elsewhere, Lovat open their defence of the RBS McTavish Cup against an under-strength Newtonmore.

The tie could not be tougher for the holders but the Premiership champions may be without Calum Stewart, Scott Campbell, Steven MacDonald and Jamie Robinson.
