Oban Saints get back in train­ing

The Oban Times - - Sport -

AF­TER a well- earned break, Oban Saints play­ers get back to pre-sea­son train­ing on Wed­nes­day July 5 at Oban Lorne Rugby Club, start­ing at 6.30pm.

Although fail­ing to pick up any sil­ver­ware last sea­son, it was still a great ef­fort by the play­ers, reach­ing the semi-fi­nals of the Scot­tish Am­a­teur Cup for the sec­ond time in two years, los­ing out in a penalty shootout in the fi­nal of the Jimmy Mar­shall Cup and fin­ish­ing sec­ond in a very com­pet­i­tive SAFL Pre­mier Di­vi­sion.

Man­ager Alex Craik is look­ing to strengthen his squad and is ask­ing any new play­ers to turn up to train­ing next Wed­nes­day.

The first out­ing of the sea­son will see the Oban side take on Scot­tish pro­fes­sional teams Dundee United, Hamil­ton Ac­cies, Al­loa Ath­letic and Ber­wick Rangers in the D& K Cup tour­na­ment on Satur­day July 8 at Moss­field.

This is fol­lowed by three friendly matches - Vale of Leven Ju­niors on Satur­day July 22, South Lochaber This­tle on Satur­day July 29; Lochgilp­head Red Star on Wed­nes­day Au­gust 2, be­fore head­ing for the A& B Cup tour­na­ment in Lochgilp­head on Satur­day Au­gust 5.

Saints have been drawn in a tough group along­side Rothe­say Bran­dane, Dunoon and Neil­ston.
