Saints slam six past Shawlands

Oban Saints 6

SAFL Premier Division

WHILE Joseph’s FP were securing the points necessary to secure the Scottish Amateur Football League Premier Division title with a 3-1 win over Campbeltown Pupils in Duntocher, Oban Saints did their best to keep the pressure on the champions-elect with an emphatic 6 - 1 win over the league’s other former pupils, Shawlands, at Lochinch.

With several players missing from the previous Saturday’s Jimmy Marshall Trophy quarter- final squad Saints manager Alex Craik named an unfamiliar starting line-up giving a first starting role to Kerr Newbigging and handing the captain’s arm band to Ross Maitland.

Saints made a lightning quick start catching Shawlands cold to open the scoring inside the first minute. A long ball from Willie Gemmell was beautifully taken down by Craig MacEwan and played diagonally across to Ross Maitland cutting in from the right who tucked it away low past keeper Scott McSharry’s right hand.

With their tails up Saints pushed forward looking for a second. Kerr Newbigging fed the overlapping Matthew Kelly on the right who was hauled down by Leyton Slack. Ross Maitland’s free-kick was pulled down at the back post by Kerr Newbigging and played back across goal looking for Paul Carmichael but Paul McGowan made an important interception and cleared the danger.
