What happens there then, will two lucky losers from round 2 get drawn into the hat for round 3?

There would be 2 ways of doing it: draw 2 lucky losers from the previous round or give 2 clubs byes. Just my guess but I'd think the latter would be more likely. Perhaps it might be limited to clubs who didn't receive a walkover in R2, to avoid someone reaching Last 32 without kicking a ball? That would be rather odd.

Sauchie 2-1 Kilwinning Rangers

Sauchie put strong WOSL opponents Kilwinning to their sword, with an excellent win on a near-vertical pitch... 100+ viewers saw them lead 1-0, pegged back, late winner. They visit Gala in R2.

Dalry has very belatedly scratched to LTHV who receive walkover.

Are WoS clubs getting to pick and choose what they want to play in.

Or maybe they are the sensible ones as much of the central belt heads closer to tier 4 than 2.

Any club had until October 17th (i.e. 28 days ago) to freely withdraw from South Challenge Cup.

Dalry had quit West of Scotland League on October 26th (i.e. 19 days ago).

Hence "very belatedly".

Arniston scratched and Cumbernauld Colts fielded an ineligible player in 2019-20.

As noted above Arniston scratched from last season's tournament (normally punishment for that is ban following season).

Cumbernauld fielded a suspended player in a tie they lost (ditto).

Penicuik and Jeanfield look the most likely to upside the LL sides, Gala v Sauchie should be even.

The four East v South matches are likely to be won by the EOS but Lochmaben v Kirkcaldy & Dysart will be close.

Tranent, HOB, Linlithgow, Whitehill should win, while Easthouses, Eyemouth will probably to lose - but the rest are not easy to call. Will be interesting to see the relative strengths of East v West.

These ties pit teams at same tier against each other:

East v South

(Tier 6) St Cuthbert Wanderers v Tynecastle


East v West

(Tier 6) Broxburn Athletic v Irvine Meadow
(Tier 6) Dundonald Bluebell v Kirkintilloch Rob Roy

(Tier 7) Eyemouth United v Muirkirk
(Tier 7) Glenrothes v St Cadocs
(Tier 7) Heriot-Watt University v Drumchapel United
(Tier 7) Kennoway Star Hearts v St Rochs
(Tier 7) Thorniewood United v Craigroyston



Tynecastle and Muirkirk will be strong favourites (although St Cuthbert are running 2nd in SOSFL currently). That aside it is all quite intriguing. Broxburn and Irvine Meadow made similar starts to the season. Dundonald perhaps favourites over Kirkintilloch especially with home advantage.

St Cadocs slight favourites at Glenrothes given their respective form. Heriot-Watt favourites over Drumchapel given position, form and home advantage; similarly Kennoway over St Rochs. Thorniewood favourites over Craigroyston for similar reasons.

Thornton Hibs v Rutherglen Glencairn - which is the sole R1 tie still outstanding - has now moved from the Memorial Park onto the artificial surface at East Fife due to the state of the pitch.

With a few West regions rumoured to enter tier 4 this week, will this affect any the games or travel between East/West or do we expect to remain exempt?

No. Professional game which the West clubs are a part of is exempt.
