Inverness Shinty Club with the Camanachd Cup

The 1951-52 season was the most successful in the history of Inverness Shinty Club. Despite losing 3-2 to Lovat in the first round of the MacTavish Cup they went on to lift the Camanachd Cup for the first and, at the time of writing (2003), only time. Victories over Caberfeidh, Inveroich and Newtonmore took the team to the final against Oban Celtic at Old Anniesland, Glasgow, on 12 April 1952. A crowd of over 10,000 saw Inverness win 3-2. Alastair Mackenzie put Inverness 1-0 ahead before two hails from Oban. William McGillivray equalised before Mackenzie scored his second, and the winning, hail.
