West of Scotland Cup – 2nd Round

LAST Saturday at Glencruitten Oban Saints eased past Cambusnethan Talbot Community to confirm their place in the draw for the third round of the West of Scotland Amateur Cup. Despite a spirited performance the Strathclyde Saturday Morning Amateur Football League men from Wishaw were no match for a Saints side slowly clicking into gear after a sluggish start to the season.

Injured pair Paul Carmichael and Ally McKerracher dropped out of the squad along with Bartosz Faron, who was working. Shaun MacIver returned after illness and Donald Campbell made his first appearance of the season after recovering from a groin strain picked up in pre-season.

Attacking the railway end in the first half, Saints started slowly but still managed to open the scoring in the sixth minute with their first meaningful attack. Willie Gemmell played the ball up to Scott Maitland on the left who was hauled down by Mark Preston.
