National Cup Draw


The Scottish Cup and National League Cup draws for the 2018/19 season have been made.

Champions Melrose will play Boroughmuir at Meggetland in their opening game in the Scottish Cup while runners-up on Silver Saturday, Stirling County, play host to Glasgow Hawks.

Two Borders derbies feature in the Scottish Cup with Hawick playing Gala at Mansfield Park and Jed-Forest taking on Selkirk.

Heriot’s and newly promoted Edinburgh Accies will also play an Edinburgh derby in the opening round.

Edinburgh’s Callum Hunter-Hill made the draw at BT Murrayfield and has competed in the Scottish Cup in previous years.

He said: “The Scottish Cup is always an exciting competition and I’m certain this year’s tournament will be no different.

It’s great to see so many clubs from across the country competing for silverware and getting the opportunity to play some teams that they don’t often face.”

Dumfries Saints, who shocked Kelso in the final of the inaugural National League Cup will travel to play Orkney as they begin their title defence.

Beaten finalists Kelso will host a Borders derby against St Boswells while the top two finishers from last season’s National League 2, Highland and Glasgow Accies, open their campaigns against each other.

The format remains the same as last season with 16 teams set to compete in a knock-out competition, featuring all ten clubs from the Premiership and the top six clubs from National League 1.

The remaining six National League 1 teams and all BT National League 2 and 3 clubs will go head-to-head in the National League Cup competition.
