Hamilton Accies win D & K Cup

Saints manager very pleased with fi rst outing of the season

OBAN Saints got preparations for the 2016-17 season under way last Saturday when they took part in the 23rd playing of their annual tournament, sponsored by D & K Lafferty Contractors Ltd.

Once again the tournament attracted top quality participants in the form of regulars Alloa Athletic, Dundee United, Hamilton Academical and trophy holders Heart of Midlothian who, together with the hosts, entertained the large crowd of spectators to a feast of football despite damp conditions.

Mainly as a result of their early involvement in the new style SPFL League Cup, the visitors were represented by their Under 20s development league teams with Saints getting in on the act by blooding youngsters Jay Cooper, Matthew Kelly and Fraser MacFarlane.

Dundee United and Hamilton Academical got proceedings under way at Mossfield, Oban, with Accies edging a tight game 1 - 0 courtesy of solitary strike from player of the tournament Steven Boyd early in the second half.

Referee Jim Pearson handed Dundee United a late lifeline awarding the Terrors a penalty kick when Matthew Smith went down in the box. Smith took the penalty kick himself but was foiled by an excellent save from Alex Marshall in the Accies goal.

The first match at Glencruitten was contested by Heart of Midlothian and Alloa Athletic and ended honours even with the Wasp’s Adam Martin cancelling out David Wilson’s strike for the Jam Tarts.
