Oban Saints field young side in pre-season friendly


LOBBYISTS for summer football received a stark reminder that the Scottish weather is no respecter of seasons as Saints and Vale of Leven Juniors played out an entertaining friendly match in foul weather conditions at Glencruitten last Saturday. As was the case when Vale came visiting last year, heavy rain on the eve of the match necessitated an early morning pitch inspection which Glencruitten 1, normally reserved for matches with the oval ball, passed with flying colours with the immaculately prepared surface holding up well during the match.

Willie Gemmell and Dean Smith appeal for a penalty in the first half but referee Jimmy Lister, who had a good game, wasn’t interested.
