At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Oban Saints U15s are back in competitive action for the first time in over 13 months this weekend when they travel to play Westercommon Star in the Glasgow and District YFL Divisional Cup.

With a decision taken to scrap the 20/21 league season due to Covid the GADYFL have set up a Divisional Cup for teams during May and June instead.

The U15s have been drawn in a group section including Westercommon Star, Cranhill and Milton Rovers, playing each team home and away over six weekends, with a semi-final and final to be played in June.

Although the youth teams at the club are now allowed to play full contact games the senior adult teams who play in the Central Scottish AFL and the Greater Glasgow AFL are still only allowed to participate in ’15-man bubble’ non-contact training sessions, but this is due to change to full contact training and 90-minute games from May 17.
