Bump.

Although the big day with 64 clubs in action isn't for another month, there are 5 ties on Saturday coming, to get the entry down to that number... Musselburgh, Lochar plus Civil Service will be favourites in their ties, while St Andrews v LTHV could be finely balanced, and given circumstances Selkirk v Upper Annandale is anyone's guess.

St Cuthbert Wanderers v Musselburgh Athletic
Selkirk v Upper Annandale
St Andrews Utd v Lothian Thistle HV
Creetown v Lochar Thistle
Civil Service Strollers v Wigtown & Bladnoch

Today's results:

St Cuthbert Wanderers 0-3 Musselburgh Athletic
Selkirk C-C Upper Annandale
St Andrews Utd 1-4 Lothian Thistle HV
Creetown 5-3 Lochar Thistle
Civil Service Strollers 9-0 Wigtown & Bladnoch



Shattering win for CSS, thumping wins for LTHV + Musselburgh, and Creetown progress. In theory Selkirk v Upper Annandale may go to a hearing IIRC but in effect a scratch.

Second Round    (Saturday 15th September)
Lochmaben v Kelty Hearts
East Kilbride v Bo'ness Utd
(Fri 14th) Cumbernauld Colts v Arniston Rangers
Hawick Royal Albert v Burntisland Shipyard

Bump.

Biggest day in senior non-league football on Saturday coming with the Last 64 of the South Challenge Cup.


Perhaps the most intriguing ties are those pitting LL v EOSL. After the LL clubs were largely massacred by their lower-league opponents in EOS Qualifying Cup R1, there will be much interest in how they fare here. Sides like EK, Cumbernauld, Spartans will start as favourites but Gala, Vale and Dalbeattie face stern tests while the universities both have intriguingly balanced games.

East Kilbride v Bo'ness Utd
(Fri 14th) Cumbernauld Colts v Arniston Rangers
Edinburgh University v Oakley Utd
Gala Fairydean Rovers v Musselburgh Athletic
Dalkeith Thistle v University of Stirling
LTHV v Spartans
Vale of Leithen v Jeanfield Swifts
Dalbeattie Star v Sauchie




LL and EOSL teams will start as strong favourites in almost all these ties v SOSL opposition, including Coldstream who won comfortably at Newton Stewart in the Scottish Cup just a fortnight ago. High-fliers of Bonnyton v Preston looks hard to call, while Mid Annandale might fancy a shock in Colinton.

Lochmaben v Kelty Hearts
Civil Service Strollers v Upper Annandale

Dumfries YMCA v Tynecastle
Nithsdale Wanderers v Penicuik Athletic
Coldstream v Newton Stewart
Abbey Vale v Broxburn Athletic
Bonnyton Thistle v Preston Athletic
Edinburgh Utd v Mid Annandale

Camelon v Heston Rovers


There are also a number of intra-league clashes, almost all from EOSL:

BSC Glasgow v Edusport Academy
Whitehill Welfare v Gretna 2008

Hawick Royal Albert v Burntisland Shipyard

Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts v Craigroyston
Ormiston v Easthouses Lily
Peebles Rovers v Dunipace
Eyemouth Utd v Dundonald Bluebell
Blackburn Utd v Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic
Linlithgow Rose v Heriot-Watt University
Tranent v Haddington Athletic
Crossgates Primrose v Hill of Beath Hawthorn
(Sun 16th) Tweedmouth Rangers v Leith Athletic
Dunbar Utd v Newtongrange Star

Threave Rovers v Creetown

 


Finally the home side will be firm favourites here:

East Stirlingshire v Glasgow University

It'll be interesting to see what the crowds are like for the later stages of this.

I always thought a Bonnyrigg/linlithgow/ bo'ness junior cup final would have a much bigger crowd then the west teams get.

Down to the last 64 at present ?

6 possibly 7 rounds to win it sound familiar  ?

One thing I would like to  think I can virtually guarantee is final won't be played  in June nor Rugby Park as a venue but you just never know :thumsup2

Cumbernauld promoting the start of their defence of the South Challenge Cup...
 


... which is impressive given they lost at home to Vale of Leithen in R4 last season.

Cumbernauld 0-0 Arniston Rangers HT.
Colts by far the better team but would struggle to finish their lunch on this performance. Howling final ball and finishing

Cumbernauld 4-0 Arniston

Gulf in quality.

Homesters spent much of first half camped in final third but couldn't score. I was waiting on Baden-Powell appearing with broomsticks, pith helmets and khaki serks.

Second half a different story although Arniston's defence will be disappointed with #1 and #4. Neat free-kick for #2.

Bizarre for #3... 'keeper stepped around a trundling effort, presumably thinking it was destined wide, but it was well inside the post.
