Scottish Cup dream over for Saints

‘I’m really proud of the players. Two semi-finals and a quarter final in three seasons is a superb achievement’

OBAN Saints’ dreams of a third successive Scottish Amateur Cup semi-final appearance were crushed at the Donald Dewar Centre, Drumchapel last Saturday afternoon. Two fixtureless Saturday’s in the lead up to the most important match of the season did little to help their cause and, despite an encouraging first half where they lead through a 17th minute strike from captain Donald Campbell, Saints eventually ran out of steam and found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-1 quarter-final scoreline against Scottish Amateur Premier Division rivals and deserved winners Goldenhill.

Manager Alex Craik kept up his unwanted record of naming a different starting 11 for every game this season and shuffled his pack once again for line-up number 25. Graham Douglas lined up in goal behind a back four of Steven MacLeod, Willie Gemmell, Paul Carmichael and Scott Maitland. The midfield four comprised Kerr Newbigging, Matthew Kelly, Myles McAuley and captain Donald Campbell. Up front were Shaun MacIver and leading goal scorer Craig MacEwan.
