Scottish Cup ties revealed

ANNAN Athletic will meet East Stirlingshire for the second time this season in a cup tie but it's another long run to Buckie Thistle for Gretna 2008.

Their names came out of the hat when the William Hill Scottish Cup second round draw took place at the Aberdeen Altens Hotel in Cove Bay
Annan (pictured above) beat ‘Shire in the League Cup competition at the start of the season and they will be looking for another good result against the Lowland League side that was relegated from Division 2 last season.
For Gretna it’s a repeat of the first round with a 500 plus mile trip to Moray to take on Buckie Thistle who play in the Highland League.
Gretna got through their first round tie on Saturday when they made a 520-mile round trip to play Deveronvale and won 3-0.
The Second Round Draw is:
Annan Athletic v East Stirlingshire
Banks O’Dee v Formartine United
