The draw for the William Hill Scottish Cup First Round will take place on Saturday evening following the conclusion of the Second Preliminary Round.

Luke Shanley will host proceedings, joined by Robbie Neilson and Charlie Flynn.

Robbie Neilson

Neilson is no stranger to the competition, having played a key role in Heart of Midlothian’s triumph back in season 2005/06.

Boxer Flynn fought his way into the nation’s heart with his triumph in the men’s lightweight division at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and is now working his way up the professional ranks, alongside his work as a motivational speaker.

Charlie Flynn

The draw will be screened live at 5.45pm on the Scottish FA’s social media channel.

Thirty five teams will go into the mix to compete in 17 ties, with the last remaining ball drawn out affording that team a bye into the Second Round after Selkirk’s withdrawal from the competition.
