Saints battle to reach last eight of the Scottish Amateur Cup

Oban Saints 2

Yoker United 0

Scottish Cup – 7th round


LAST Saturday at a cold, wet and windy Glencruitten, Oban Saints clinched their place in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Amateur Cup with a hardfought 2-0 victory over Yoker United. Despite this being their debut season, the Strathclyde Saturday Morning Amateur Football League new boys gave an extremely good account of themselves and will be slightly disappointed not to have taken something from the game. Saints, however, dug in where necessary and, although well short of their best form, ultimately had too much for the visitors and booked a third consecutive quarter-final appearance.

Saints manager Alex Craik took the now customary flurry of late call-offs in his stride to name a strong starting eleven. Graham Douglas lined up in goal behind a back four of Steven MacLeod, Marc Maccallum, Paul Carmichael and Scott Maitland. Willie Gemmell anchored the midfield alongside Matthew Kelly and Keith Millar. Up front, skipper Donald Campbell spearheaded the attack flanked by Shaun MacIver and Craig MacEwan.
