Away to Stranraer or Motherwell B

Saturday September 4th

Let’s hope all restrictions are lifted by then so no one misses out.  :getmecoat:

Anybody else find it ironic that it is called the SPFL Trust Trophy ? 

Ironic doesn't cover it.

I think it fair to point out that the Cup was sponsored last season, and this season  by James Anderson and another mystery benefactor.  I don't  believe that this was anybody called Doncaster. No games were played last season, but IIRC payments  were made to clubs and their associated trusts.  The idea was to support clubs and their community trusts, and in recognition of the part played by the trusts during the pandemic.

In my mind the most heart warming news to come out of what otherwise has been the most trying of times for Scottish Football, was that the need to cut Neil Doncaster's salary never arose.

Thanks, didn't realise that. Still ironic that SPFL and trust in the same title.

It's not only ironic, AJ, it's a stick-on oxymoron  :happy2:

SPFL have now mapped out the complete draw like Wimbledon.

If we win the 2nd round match we play the winners of QOS or Broomhill or Clyde at home (if I understand the wiring diagram!)

If we win that, the qtr final draw would be against the winners of Montrose or Ross County or Stirling Albion v Celtic Colts or Annan or Morton. Looks like at home.

Lost the will to live at that point but if you want to try to work out who we'll get in the final, see the SPFL official website.

Haud me back. Canny wait (not).
