Junior Cup finalists Musselburgh Athletic were given a bye when the draw for the first round of this season’s competition was made at Hampden tonight.
The majority of clubs from the East Region were given a free passage into the second round, but the draw did conjure up an exciting Super League versus Premier League-clash with Newtongrange Star at home to Edinburgh United.
Other ties featuring teams from the East include a trip to South Lanarkshire for Johnny Harvey’s Haddington Athletic, with the Millfield Park side set to take on Larkhall on September 26. Bonnyrigg Rose will host Thorniewood United from the Central District First Division, while Armadale visit East Kilbride and Broxburn Athletic head for Ayrshire to take on Maybole. 92 clubs in total were given a bye into the second round.
