LOTHIAN THISTLE HUTCHISON VALE will face East Super League champions Kelty Hearts in the first round of the Scottish Cup should they win their replay against Girvan.

Today’s draw paired the winners of the second preliminary round replay with Kelty, and also produced interesting ties for other junior and senior clubs in the Edinburgh region.

Edinburgh University are away to Strathspey Thistle, Preston Athletic face Fort William at home, and Spartans entertain Coldstream. Linlithgow Rose face a trip to Gala Fairydean Rovers, whilst Whitehill Welfare travel north to Wick Academy.
