MacEwan’s magic helps Saints reach Jimmy Marshall Cup final

Hillington 1

Oban Saints 4

Jimmy Marshall Cup – semi-final

OBAN Saints reached their fourth Scottish Amateur Football League Jimmy Marshall Cup final in five seasons with a 4-1 win at a rain-soaked Penilee Community Centre last Saturday.

After a fairly even goalless first half, Saints turned up the heat on Premier Division One opponents Hillington with Craig MacEwan netting a hat-trick to take his tally for the season to 36 goals.

The victory gave Saints some small measure of revenge for the agonising 2013 final penalty shoot-out defeat at the hands of Hillington at Somervell Park, Cambuslang, and guarantees the Saints faithful another cup final day out to look forward to.

Hosts Hillington kicked off in heavy rain defending the community centre end where, after some early sparring, Saints forced the first corner kick of the match in the third minute.
