The draw for the second round of the Scottish Cup took place on Wednesday 29th September at the Scottish Football Museum, Hampden Park. Scottish FA vice-president Campbell Ogilvie, former Rangers player Charlie Miller and former Dundee manager Jim Duffy drew the 16 second round ties.
Glasgow have been handed a tough away draw against junior side Beith F.C. The West Super League Premier Division champions secured their place in the next round with a 2-0 win over last seasons Scottish Junior Cup winners Linlithgow Rose in front of a home crowd of around 1,200.
The ‘Mighty’ will prove a tough opponent for Glasgow, who beat Burntisland Shipyards 1-0 at Garscube on Saturday to progress to the 2nd round for the first time in 35 years. They currently sit second and are still undefeated this season after 5 games in the West Super League, with a record of 3 wins and 2 draws. Another striking stat from the league shows they have only conceded 1 goal this season, so Glasgow will have to be at the top of their game if they are to progress any further in this competition.
The game is a mouth-watering prospect for Glasgow, with team captain and fourth-year dental student Calum Tevendale telling the SFA that “Not many people get the chance to play in the Scottish Cup; it will probably be the pinnacle of my career. This is a chance for us to really do something – even being involved in the build-up is fantastic, there’s a real buzz around the club” Third-year medical student and club captain Gary Rodger will be hoping as many people as possible make their way down to Beith to show their support for the team.
The 2nd round tie will be played on Saturday the 23rd October at Beith’s home ground, Bellsdale Park. Tickets are priced at £8 for Adults and £4 for OAPS/Kids.
