Rothesay Academy’s under-15 girls’ football team are heading for Hampden after a comfortable win over Oban in the regional semi-finals of the Scottish Schools Cashback Sevens in Paisley.

Only a heroic performance by the Oban goalkeeper prevented the Academy girls taking an early lead, but Marcela McMillan eventually opened the scoring after 18 minutes, and six more goals followed in the second half, with Chloe Murphy netting a hat-trick, Cherie Woods adding two and Holly MacMillan finding the net on her debut.
