A NEW era in Scottish football was launched on Monday when the first round of the William Hill Scottish Cup was made.

The bookies are pumping up to £3million into the tournament over the next three years and it’s the shot in the arm the game north of the border needed after a disastrous run of European results.

Highland League and East, North and South senior sides were joined by junior outfits for the first-round draw with everyone dreaming of a decent run and a shot at the big guns.

William Hill have priced up which non-league side will go furthest and make Buckie 7-2 ahead of Deveronvale and Spartans 11-2 with Auchinleck and Irvine Meadow the most fancied junior sides at 6-1.

Looking ahead it’s 7-2 the Old Firm meet in the Final and 5-1 for any non-league side to reach the fifth round. A non-league team to beat an SPL outfit pays 50-1.

William Hill Scottish Cup first round: Rothes v Clach, Fort William v Bo’ness Utd, Edinburgh City v Brora, Nairn v Selkirk, Fraserburgh v Civil Service Strollers, Wigtown and Bladnoch v Preston Ath. Lossiemouth v Auchinleck Talbot, Huntly v Newton Stewart, Forres v Irvine Meadow, Dalbeattie Star v Inverurie, Wick Acad v Coldstream, Glasgow Univ v Cove. Vale of Leithen v Girvan, Gala Fairydean v Hawick RA, Culter v Burntisland Shipyard, Edinburgh Univ v Whitehill Welfare, St Cuthbert Wanderers v Keith. Bye – Golspie Sutherland. Ties to be played on Saturday, September 24.
