Saints at home in first league game of the sea­son

The Oban Times - - Sport -

AF­TER a suc­cess­ful pre-sea­son, Oban Saints get down to the busi­ness of pick­ing up league points when they take on East Kil­bride in the first league game of the SAFL sea­son.

The match will be played at Glen 2 with a 2pm kick- off. Ref­eree in charge is Alan Frame.

This could prove a tricky fix­ture for Saints as East Kil­bride lifted the Premier Di­vi­sion One league ti­tle last sea­son so Saints can’t af­ford to take the visi­tors lightly.

Man­ager, Alex Craik, should have a full squad to choose from for this im­por­tant fix­ture.

Alex said: ‘ We’ve had a great pre-sea­son, but it’s now down to the nitty gritty of pick­ing up league points.

‘I’ve got to pick my first squad of 16 play­ers, which is go­ing to be dif­fi­cult as ev­ery­body has done re­ally well in pre-sea­son.

‘Some play­ers will be dis­ap­pointed at be­ing left out, but as long as they con­tinue to come to train­ing and work hard they will be given their chance as the sea­son goes on.’

The fol­low­ing Satur­day the Oban side travel to Greenock to take on In­ver­clyde.

Well turned out shinty ref­er­ees
