No cup run for Saints

The Galloway News - - SPORT - Stu­art Gille­spie

St Cuth­bert Wan­der­ers’ Scot­tish Cup adventure is over for another year.

The South of Scot­land League champs were beaten in the first pre­lim­i­nary round by East ti­tle hold­ers Leith Ath­letic at St Mary’s Park on Satur­day.

Af­ter a goal­less first half, Leith took the lead when Kyle Fee’s cor­ner found its way into the Saints net with the help of a home player.

Fee added the sec­ond mid­way through the sec­ond half and he struck again 10 min­utes from time to send Leith through. This week­end Saints are away to Mid An­nan­dale. The Locker­bie side has made a good start to the sea­son and were top of the ta­ble af­ter their first three games.

How­ever, on Satur­day they lost in a thrilling game to Cree­town.

Saints were in mid ta­ble be­fore last night’s matches but had played one less game than league lead­ers Wig­town who have won all of their first four games.
