The North Caledonian League outfit will face the West of Scotland League club at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie on Saturday, August 27.

McKernie says their opponent will be an unknown quantity when they face each other later this month.

But he has faith in his squad they can get the job done and make it to the first round proper.

“The draw, I think we all know that there isn’t any easy ties in the national cup, but its a day we are looking forward to and testing ourselves against an unknown quantity," he said.

“We will go in to the tie confident and prepare to the best we can, with a squad that is keen to do well and see where it takes us.”
Last season, Golspie Sutherland recorded a historic 2–0 win against Hawick Royal Albert United before a 3–0 defeat to Civil Service Strollers.
