William Hill Scottish Cup 1st Round Draw

Posted on Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Spartans have been drawn away to East of Scotland Premier Division side and old friends Edinburgh University, in the first round of the William Hill Scottish Cup. The draw, which was made by Judy Murray, mother of Scottish Wimbledon winner Andy Murray, took place at Celtic Park today and signifies the start of the 2013/14 Scottish Cup Campaign.

The match sees another return to Peffermill for manager Dougie Samuel while new summer signings Jack Beacher and Danny Main will return to play against the side they moved from in the summer.

Dougie Samuel commented: “It’s a difficult draw against a side and Club we have a great deal of respect for.  In each of the last 2 seasons EUAFC have defeated Spartans at Ainslie Park, which serves as a warning for anyone who may be tempted to underestimate a Club and coaching staff I know very well.  I’m sure like ourselves, everyone at EUAFC will be looking forward to the game, Peffermill in September will be in great condition”.

The tie is due to take place on 14th September.
