Home tie for Lok vs. Rosyth

In this evening’s Macron Scottish Junior Cup 5th Round draw, Pollok were pulled out of the hat at home to East Region side Rosyth. The Fifers have had a difficult 2018-19 thus far and find themselves at present towards the foot of the East Region South Division table with 12 points from 11 games. They have had more joy in cup ties so far, winning last weekend at home to West Calder United in their Thorntons East League Cup group stage match. They also managed to hit double figures back in September in the DJ Laing East Region Cup at home to Coupar Angus, running out 12-1 winners. This is their first season at a new home – Lok played them (and won) at the now vacated Recreation Park in the Ronnie Lowrie era. They now play at the Fleet Grounds, should a replay be required.

Full draw (ties due 26th January 2019)

Girvan v Clydebank
Craigmark Burntonians v Lochee United
Kilwinning Rangers v Thornton Hibs or Renfrew
Largs Thistle v St. Rochs
Cambuslang Rangers v Troon
Rossvale v Hurlford United
Blantyre Victoria or Auchinleck Talbot v Rutherglen Glencairn
