Mauchline United 0

Scottish Cup - 1st round

The visitors, whose small but vocal support, were enjoying the Oban sunshine, kicked off attacking the Mossfield end, however, it was Saints who were first to threaten. Willie Gemmell sent a free-kick from just inside the Mauchline half and wide on the right into the visitors’ box for new signing Ally McKerracher who flicked Willie Gemmell’s free-kick to Craig MacEwan but Craig couldn’t get the better of Mauchline right back Ryan O’Donnell who saw the danger out.

The early pressure bore fruit for Saints in the seventh minute when Shaun MacIver burst through on the end of a Craig MacEwan pass to fire the ball into the roof of the net from 18 yards after good work in midfield from Keith Millar and Ally McKerracher.
