Scottish Youth Cup draw hands Hearts an East Lothian tie and Hibs a trip west

Hearts will travel to East Lothian in the second round of the Scottish Youth Cup – to take on the only East of Scotland League club still in the competition.

Haddington Athletic have landed a plum draw against the young Jambos at Millfield Park as a reward for defeating Tynecastle 4-1 at Meggetland last Friday.

Hearts reached the final last season, losing out to Rangers at Hampden, and many of that squad have moved past the under-18 age group and are now in the B team Lowland League squad.

Elsewhere, Hibs travel to St Mirren in the second round and Livingston’s youngsters host Queen’s Park. Ties are due to be played Friday, October 21.
