Scottish Cup first round draw in full

The first round draw for this season’s Scottish Cup took place this evening at Hampden Park with Scotland Rugby Head Coach Gregor Townsend conducting the draw.

Afterwards he said: “The Scottish Cup is a competition I have really fond memories of, going to see Gala Fairydean Rovers in cup matches when I was growing up.

“When they had a chance of reaching the third round there was always a party atmosphere around the town which shows how much the cup can captivate people.

“It was great to also see Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale in the draw who I played with when I was younger. They are a great club that have started the pathway for so many players who have gone on to play professionally.

“Football is something I have been interested in all my life and I remember my Dad taking me to games at Hampden Park. The atmosphere was always electric, especially as it was terracing back then.

“It was brilliant to see Scotland qualify for the Euros in the summer and amazing to see how much the country got behind them.

“From a coaching side, it was something we spoke to our players about during the Six Nations. The scenes after the football team qualified for the Euros were inspirational for us and just shows what can happen when you succeed with your country.”

The ties will be played on Saturday, 18 September 2021.
