The Bullough Cup is a knock-out competition in the sport of shinty.

It is played for by reserve-level teams from the South of Scotland, that is all teams playing in South Division Two, Kyles Athletic Seconds, Lochside Rovers, Inveraray Second Team as well as non-league teams such as London Camanachd. Ballachulish are the current holders.

History[edit]

The trophy was first played for in 1923. Its early years saw the competition dominated by teams from Oban. With the amalgamation of the Dunn and Southern Leagues, the trophy become more open. The trophy has had two significant periods of abeyance, one in the lead up to the Second World War, and the other in the mid-Sixties.

Lochside Rovers were champions in 2009 defeating Kyles Athletic in a rearranged final in Tighnabruaich after the original final was called off.

The Bullough Cup has seen several interesting developments in recent years, in 2005 it was run as a league cup, which marked the re-entry of Col-Glen and London to competition as well as the first senior fixtures of Aberdour Shinty Club. It has also seen the first Camanachd Association fixture in England for 80 years [1] and the victory by the Highlanders in 2006.

As of 2010, the opening rounds of the cup will be played midweek, in order to reduce the backlog of fixtures that has regularly afflicted shinty.[2]

Glasgow Mid-Argyll won the 2010 cup defeating Kyles 3-1.[3]
