editorial image

Newton Stewart travel to Ochilview to play East Stirling in the third round of the South Challenge Cup for what is a historic fixture for the South team.

Threave Rovers have a home tie against a strong Vale of Leithen side. Another match to watch is the tiw between Edusport Academy who play the unbeaten Lowland League side East Kilbride.

South league leaders Wigtown and Bladnoch travel to the Capital to play Edinburgh University and if they play as they can then the Trammondford park side have a good chance of progressing. On Wednesday night there are two Cree lodge cup second round ties with Edusport playing hosts to Lochar Thistle in a match the home side should progress from while the match at Palmerston Park where Heston rovers play Upper Annandale could go either way.
