Kingussie & Oban Camanachd face off in the Macaulay Cup Final this Saturday at Mossfield.

Read the below stats to get you warmed up for the big fixture!

This stat pack is brought to you thanks to support from:

Oban Camanachd are scoring an average of 2.37 goals per game and conceding an average of 1.1 goals per game.

Kingussie are scoring an average of 2.33 goals per game and conceding an average of 0.86.

Capitalising on tired legs

The stats show that Oban Camanachd are at their most dangerous in the final 15 minutes of each half with these periods accounting for 43% of Camanachd's total goals.

2nd half slump?

Oban Camanachd are twice as leaky in the 2nd half compared to the 1st. This is something that the Celtic Society Champions will have to address if they are to realise their ambitions of winning national silverware.

Start and finish strongly

The stats show that Kingussie's two most proficient goal scoring periods are the opening 15 minutes and the final 15. Given what we know about Oban Camanachd's defence (don't give much away in the opening 15 but are far more open in the final 15) we could be in for a grandstand finish come Saturday.

Taking time to get up to speed?

The stats show that, in direct contrast to Oban Camanachd, Kingussie conceded twice as many goals in the first half when compared to the 2nd period. If the MacTavish Cup Champions can prevent Camanachd from scoring in the first half, they could be on to a winner.

Malcolm X Clarks the spot

Maclcolm Clark is Oban Camanachd's top scorer this season, you can read an interview with the forward in the news section of Daniel MacCuish and Scotland U17 star Matthew Sloss make up the chasing pack.

Falconer soars

2023 Captain James Falconer leads the scoring charts for the Grand Slam Champions with Ruairidh Anderson in tow and a hat-trick of other forwards making up for the goals lost through Roddy Young's injury.

Everyone connected with Oban Camanachd are looking forward to this Saturday’s Artemis Macaulay cup final.

After coming off the high at the weekend against Lovat we need to re-group and embrace the challenge that lies ahead.

Our boys know they have an opportunity to win a major trophy on our own pitch and make the town proud of their team.

Iain Borthwick

Firstly I’d like to congratulate Oban Camanachd on winning their game yesterday and we will be looking forward to seeing them again in another final after this weekend. It is going to be another tough game this weekend though as it is never easy playing Oban, especially on their own turf. But, the boys are up for it, they will have a couple of training session and practice games in preparation this week and Saturday will be upon before we know it. Game on!
