Shinty: Kingussie lift Camanachd Cup again

Kingussie celebrate winning the Camanachd Cup
Kingussie and Glenurquhart have been well matched over the past few seasons - but not in the Camanachd Cup final

Kingussie claimed their 23rd Camanachd Cup after a 4-0 victory in a one-sided final against Glenurquhart.

Two goals apiece from Savio Genini and the veteran Ronald Ross put paid to the hopes of Glenurquhart whose only previous final appearance was in 1988 - where they also lost to Kingussie.

It was an especially pleasing day for 39-year-old Ross at Bught Park.

The man dubbed "Ronaldo of the Glens" was named man of the match to win his fourth Albert Ross medal.

The 12-time Camanachd Cup winner told BBC Scotland: "It's really special. I've been trying for so long to get that 12th medal and it's been so difficult.

"We've come so close and today was just the crowning moment.

"I'm delighted for the club because our local rivals Newtonmore have been dominating the last while so I'm delighted to win it this year and get that monkey off our backs.

"It will probably be my swansong. I kind of kept that secret. I will probably play for the second team next year. I've been enjoying that this year. What a way to go out."
