Top of the pile is probably the clash between last year’s beaten finalists Pollok and record winners Auchinleck Talbot.

The match between the two Super League giants is a repeat of the 1986 final which Talbot won 3-2.

Kirkintilloch Rob Roy are fancied by many for a lengthy cup run following their scintillating start to the season and have been handed a relatively straight forward looking task against Central League side Glasgow Perthshire.

Thorniewood United will have it all to do against East Superleague champions Bonnyrigg Rose while two of the East Region’s other main contenders - Bo’ness United and Linlithgow Rose - have away matches at Blantyre Vics and Dundee North End respectively.

Carnoustie Panmure have drawn a trip to Glasgow to face Petershill and Broughty Athletic are also away, at Downfield.

West Super League First Division leaders Kilsyth Rangers are at home to Lochgelly and local rivals Cumbernauld United will entertain Tranent.
