Saints reach last 16 of Scottish Cup

Kilbride Thistle 2

Oban Saints 3


OBAN Saints bounced back in defiant style from their midweek Scottish Amateur Football League Jimmy Marshall Trophy defeat at the hands of Argyll rivals Lochgilphead Red Star to book their place in the last 16 of the Scottish Amateur Cup at Kilwinning Sports Club last Saturday.

Hosts Kilbride Thistle from West Kilbride had already claimed some significant scalps on an impressive run to the sixth round of the Scottish Amateur Football Association’s blue ribband event and looked sure to pose a major threat to Saints cup aspirations. However, a first-ever goal from 17-year-old Daniel MacCuish ultimately proved to be the difference between the teams as Saints edged out the Ayrshire Amateur Football Association Premier League title hopefuls by the odd goal in five.

Kilbride Thistle kicked off attacking the pavilion end but it was Saints who were first to threaten with a dangerous Willie Gemmell free-kick onto the sixyard line after Daniel MacCuish had been impeded by Blair Grey.
