Caberfeidh are due to return to home action tomorrow when they face Kyles Athletic in the Premiership.

The Cabers had been due to travel to Lochaber in the Macaulay Cup last weekend, but progressed via a walkover when Lochaber could not raise a team.

As a result, it was a weekend off early in the campaign for Caberfeidh’s first team, who will return to Castle Leod tomorrow afternoon.

Kyles Athletic, who last week saw off Oban Celtic in the cup, have had a mixed bag of results so far in 2022.

Despite being one of just a handful of teams to have completed six fixtures in the league, Kyles have only won one of them so far, drawing three and losing the other two.

Both sides, then, will be hoping to claim victory this weekend to kickstart their seasons, with Caberfeidh also sitting on just one win from the five games they have completed so far in the league in a bottom of the table clash.

After their own mixed start to the season, Kinlochshiel will be hoping that there is no looking back at Balmacara after knocking Newtonmore out of the Macaulay Cup last time out.

John MacRae bookended the match with his two goals, either side of Keith MacRae’s 74th minute strike, to knock ‘More out on their own patch.

Now, though, the task facing Johnston Gill’s side is to make sure that performance was not a one-off, so they will be desperate to follow that up with victory in the league away at Oban Camanachd.

Oban Camanachd picked up a win of their own last time out, beating Glasgow Mid Argyll at home 4–1 thanks to Connor Howe’s double and further goals from Daniel Madej and Daniel Cameron.

Two points could see ‘Shiel begin to close the gap that has already opened up to league leaders Kingussie as the defending Camanachd Cup winners bid for more silverware in 2022.
