Saints teach Pupils scoring lesson in a feisty Argyll derby encounter


Campbeltown Pupils 0

Oban Saints 4

SAFL Premier Division

Saints took full advantage of their fellow title-chasers’ inactivity climbing to second place in the table, one point behind leaders and reigning champions East Kilbride Amateurs on the back of a hard-fought but ultimately convincing win over their Argyll rivals.
