Pupils crash out of Scottish Cup

Scroll to bottom for short video clip!

30th January 2007

At the fourth time of asking Campbeltown Pupils finally played their Scottish Cup 4th round tie at home to Lothian outfit Uphall Station.

Unfortunately it was not a happy return to the football season as the local side crashed out of the cup 3-1.

In the Pupils first match since their third round tie in the same competition they found themselves 2-0 down in the first ten minutes.

However, the Scottish Amateur Division One side found their feet and pushed back into the came and got their reward when young Craig Sloey pulled one back.

In the second half the Pupils pushed for the equaliser and had the  Lothian AFA Premier League champions on the back foot but unfortunately could not find the back of the net.  Uphall made it 3-1 in the dying minutes to make it into the fifth round much to the disappointment of the local side.

The Pupils are away this weekend to Glencastle Sparta in the Jimmy Marshall Trophy.  This is despite the Campbeltown side having 15 league games still to play!
