Ten out of ten as Oban Saints dump Argyll rivals

‘We pressed high up the park and never let their defence settle on the ball’

Oban Saints 10

Campbeltown Pupils 0

SAFL Premier Division


TWO goals on his competitive debut for youngster Daniel Croarkin put the icing on the cake for Saints manager Alex Craik as he watched his charges put ten past Argyll rivals Campbeltown Pupils at Glencruitten last Saturday afternoon.

An Argyll Derby had all the makings of a tricky opening day fixture for Saints, however the home side received a major boost when injuries and holidays forced Pupils to name a virtually unrecognisable lineup.

Only four players remained from the corresponding fixture last season with the absence of Gary Grumoli, Pupils top scorer for the past eight seasons, a significant omission.

Saints welcomed back Willie Gemmell and Dean Smith to the squad that narrowly lost out in the Argyll and Bute Cup the previous week. Also making a welcome return was skipper Marc Maccallum missing through injury since the D&K Lafferty Cup.
