Fraser First Round Draw Produces Top Pairing

Although forced into yet another delay due to Scottish Government restrictions there is no disputing the quality of some First-Round pairings in the Fraser Trophy. The tournament comes within the remit of the Strathclyde Evangelical Churches Amateur League, which comprises a Premier Division and Division 1 totalling no fewer than 28 clubs.

Four First Round byes have already been forthcoming – Glasgow Free, Greenbank BB, Mearns Churches and South Glasgow – but there is no question that some Division 1 teams will be looking to record a stunning top-flight result.

Are Home Church Kirkintilloch capable of creating a shock against former Premier Division champions Motherwell Kings, who also know the way to negotiate testing cup opponents?

Avendale are former Cup holders and having emerged from the ballot with ground advantage perhaps Mount Kirk may find this hurdle too high to negotiate.

Similarly, ex-Premier Champions Machan United will be out to display top form at the expense of visitors Greenbank C of S.

Full Draw:

Anniesland v Auchen Foyle
Avendale v Mount Kirk
Craighalbert v Law
Croftfoot Parish v U.C.A.
Cumbernauld v King’s Park
Dennistoun v Re:Hope
Home Church v Motherwell Kings
Houston v West Hamilton
Machan United v Greenbank C of S
Tollcross v Coatdyke
Trinity AFC v Glasgow Elm
West Glasgow v Fullarton Irvine.

Byes- Glasgow Free, Greenbank BB, Mearns Churches and South Glasgow.
