The Valerie Fraser Trophy also known as the Valerie Fraser Camanachd Cup or the Women's Camanachd Cup is the premier trophy in Women's shinty and is currently sponsored by Peter Gow. It is played on a knock-out basis by the teams in the National Division 1 League and is administered by the Women's Camanachd Association. The current holders are Glasgow Mid Argyll

History[edit]

The trophy was originally donated to the Camanachd Association in memory of Valerie Fraser. It was originally a trophy for male teams and it was won by Glenurquhart in 1991.[1] Some years later, after the competition fell into abeyance, it was donated to the Women's Camanachd Association and was first played for in 2002.

In 2009, the WCA held the semi-finals on one day at University of Stirling.[2] Glengarry defeated Tir Conaill Harps 2-1 to win the 2009 Cup. There is also a national trophy for Division Two teams, the Marine Harvest Challenge Cup.
