We caught up with GMA’s Calum McLay ahead of this weekend’s match against Inveraray in the Glasgow Celtic Society Semi-Final…

Calum, you’re just one game away from the Glasgow Celtic Society Cup Final – how are you feeling ahead of this weekend’s clash with Inveraray?

The feelings good and Alan’s been training everyone hard. We know Inveraray are a good side and pose a threat up front, so we’ll need to keep it tight and build on our result from last week. 

How have you and the lads adjusted to life in the MOWI Premiership this season?

We’ve started the season off well performance wise, particularly with the number of injuries we’ve had and also with Garry Luke retiring this season which was a blow. However, we just need to keep working away and the results will come.

If GMA win it will be their first GCS final since 1987 – how are the team coping with that pressure?

Our captain, John-Don Mackenzie mentioned that when he was doing a bit of research into the GCS. However, we’re just treating it as we would with any other game with the same preparation and build up. 

If you do make it to the final you’ll either be facing 20 time champions Oban Camanachd or 35 time champions and holders Kyles Athletic – do you think you can cause an upset there?

We’re just concentrating on getting past Inveraray at the moment, everyone wants to get to the final we just need to make sure that happens.
