Saints net eight as Jags see red

Oban side reach the last 16 of both West of Scotland and Scottish Cups

West of Scotland Cup – 6th round

A HAT-TRICK from Shaun MacIver on his return from suspension helped Oban Saints see off the challenge of Woodhall Thistle last Saturday at the Oban Community Sports Field to book their place in the last 16 of the West of Scotland Amateur Cup.

The Caledonian League Division 1B visitors from Holytown posed one or two problems for Saints in the early exchanges, however, once skipper Donald Campbell had given the home side the lead there was only ever going to be one winner.

Youngster Daniel MacCuish got his second goal in as many games and new signing Lewis Cameron bagged a brace to mark his return to the club and set up an intriguing sixth round away tie against 2016 cup winners Shortlees in Ayrshire this coming Saturday.

Saints secretary David Buchanan had taken the decision on Friday afternoon to switch the tie from Glencruitten to the all-weather surface at Oban High School. This turned out to be an inspired move as heavy overnight rain rendered all grass parks in the town unplayable and wiped out all except the Saints match from the sporting calendar.
