“It was a magnificent effort by so many, including whole families, to make the 320-mile round trip and the team and the club would like to express enormous gratitude for their commitment”, said Mr Cameron.
“We congratulate Aberdeen who won a final which could have gone either way. But reaching the final, and seeing how much it meant to Inverness, makes us all the more determined to work together with the aim of Caley Thistle figuring in more major occasions in the times ahead.”
Mr Cameron said that in addition to the magnificent supporters, he also wanted to recognise the commitment of former chairmen, directors, managers and players who have all played a part in where the club is today.
He said: “The way the whole of Inverness got behind the club in the run-up to the final is deeply appreciated. The business community really got behind us.
“Highland Council made an excellent contribution, working with fans group Caley Jags Together to ensure we had just short of 8000 supporters at the game. We thank all who contributed to this exodus, including local bus company D & E Coaches and ScotRail, a fantastic all round effort.”
The chairman pointed out that the weekend results ensured that Caley Thistle have secured their second successive Top Six finish, with six games still to go to the split, an impressive achievement.
“Our players will get past their disappointment of the cup final and our focus is now to finish as high up the Premiership table as we can. We look forward to getting a good turnout against Partick Thistle on Saturday to send a ‘welcome home’ message to our team and to thank them for their efforts.”
