Saints 17s de­feat Saints 16s in League Cup fi­nal

The Oban Times - - Sport -

LAST Sun­day at Moss­field Sta­dium two Oban Saints youth team games took place.

The first saw Saints Un­der 15s reach the Dun­bar­ton­shire De­vel­op­ment Foot­ball League Cup fi­nal with a com­pre­hen­sive 7-3 win over Dum­bar­ton United Blacks thanks to goals from Len­non Camp­bell (3), Aaron McKay (3) and Jor­dan Nor­man.

The fi­nal, against ei­ther Dum­bar­ton United Yel­lows or Drum­chapel, will be played at Mill­burn Park, Vale of Leven, on Satur­day May 27.

The second match in­volved two Oban Saints teams with the older Un­der 17s com­ing out on top by the odd goal in three against the Un­der 16s.

Be­fore the game, the teams and of­fi­cials were piped onto the park by Stu­art Camp­bell. The Un­der 17s took the lead in the first half through a Lewis Buchanan free kick but Cameron Kerr equalised with five min­utes of the game re­main­ing.

How­ever, a mix-up in the Un­der 16s de­fence in time added on by the ref­eree al­lowed Kenny Mac­Don­ald a tap-in from close range much to the de­light of his team­mates to make the fi­nal score 2-1. Oban Saints Youths chair­man Rob­bie John­stone thanked the match of­fi­cials Tony McCann, John Scott, Tim Wood­cock and James Gal­lagher be­fore calling on for­mer youth chair­men Iain Alexan­der and Alan MacLeodto hand over the tro­phies, firstly to the Un­der 16s who re­ceived the DFDL Un­der 16 league cham­pi­onship tro­phy they won a few weeks ago and then to the Un­der 17s for their nar­row win in the fi­nal.
