St Roch’s were given a glamour away tie in the second round of the West of Scotland Cup, as they were paired with Super Premier side Auchinleck Talbot.
Last season, junior giants Talbot were beaten semi finalists of this very tournament, beaten 1 nil by Cumnock….whilst they also were beaten 2-1 by Glenafton in the Scottish cup final. Auchinleck finished in fourth place in the Super Premier League, 6 points off eventual winners Glenafton.
Historically, Talbot’s pedigree isn’t for discussion, 11 times Scottish Junior Cup winners, most recently 2014/15. In 2015/16 season, they won the last of their amazing 13 West of Scotland cup titles. Add in 14 Ayrshire cups, 10 Ayrshire league cup, 2 Evening Times Cups and of course 5 times Super Premier Division champions, most recently 2015/16 which completed a unique treble.
The match will take place at Beechwood Park, with the date to be confirmed.
We look forward to visiting Auchinleck Talbot.
