Brave fight-back sees Saints march into Scottish Cup quarter finals

‘I was fearing the worst when we were 3-1 down but the boys showed great character to fight their way back to win’

Oban Saints 4

Letham 3

Scottish Cup – 7th round replay


LAST Saturday at Glencruitten Oban Saints and Perthshire Amateur Football Association Division One leaders and reigning champions Letham served up the sequel to their Scottish Amateur Cup thriller which more than lived up to the previous week’s first instalment.

Injuries to Graham Douglas and Ross Maitland and the non-availability of Martin Bonar forced manager Alex Craik to change his squad, which he was also able to leave himself out of. Thomas McCulloch returned between the posts with Dene Cassells and Myles McAuley returning after a two-week absence to take their places on the bench alongside Matthew Kelly, Ross Maitland and Dean Smith.

Paul Carmichael, centre, opens the scoring during the Scottish Cup seventh round replay against Letham at Glencruitten last Saturday.
