FORMER winners Beith face a trip to the Kingdom of Fife in the third round (last 64) of the Scottish Junior Cup after the draw was made yesterday.

Johnny Millar's team, who won the showpiece trophy in 2015-16, will play Crossgate Primrose away on Saturday, November 25.

Kilbirnie Ladeside have a big incentive to win Saturday's replay at Penicuik as it would earn them home advantage against Central League Division Two team Lanark United.

Kilwinning Rangers face a very stiff test away to East Coast big guns and fellow former winners Bo'ness United in what must be one of the most attractive ties of the round.

Irvine Meadow have a long trip to the north of Scotland to face Aberdeenshire team Dyce and will be favoured to come through.

Derby rivals Irvine Vics will be at home to Fifers Lochore Welfare, if Stevie Wilson's men can overcome Forth Wanderers in an outstanding second round tie.

In other action, Auchinleck Talbot are away to Hill O'Beath Hawthorn, one of the sides Buffs beat en route to winning the trophy in 1999, while Cumnock are at home to Bathgate in a repeat of the 2008 final won by the East Coast team.

The draw affecting Ayrshire sides is, as follows: Forth Wanderers or Irvine Vics v Lochore Welfare, Dyce v Irvine Meadow, Cumnock v Bathgate, Penicuik or Kilbirnie v Lanarnk, Troon v Yoker Athletic, Kirkintilloch Rob Roy v Glenafton, Bo'ness Utd v Kilwinning Rangers, Crossgates Primrose v Beith Juniors, Blackburn Utd v Annbank or Colony Park, Hill O'Beath v Auchinleck Talbot.
