However, second half goals from Scot Rough, Ciaran Diver and Carlo Monti saw Beith through comfortably, setting up a tie at home to Broomhill FC in the second round.

It is a tie manager Strain is knows will be a challenge and he says he won't be looking any further beyond it.

Though he admitted that the competition as a whole is allowing the club's fans and players to dream.

The competition is one for the supporters and players. Fans staff and players alike can dream about showcases their talent and the competition is reward for being champions.

"How far we go, we’ll have to wait and see but Broomhill are the next opponents and they’ll be a tough team to beat.
