Sutherland will have a home draw against a Championship North side if they can make it into the second round of the Scottish Women's Cup.

They still have their first round tie against Bishopton to play this Sunday, but after the draw was made for the next round both teams now know that a home match against Grampian awaits the winner.

Grampian sit in mid-table in the Championship North, but have shown themselves to be prone to big defeats like falling 12–2 to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in what was their debut at the club's stadium.

Sutherland have already shown themselves to be a capable cup team this year, lifting the Highlands and Islands Cup with a win over Clachnacuddin in the final.

It will be a step up regardless, though, with Grampian competing in Scottish Women's Football's performance arm, while the Highlands and Islands League sits in the recreational side of the administration.

Second round ties must be played on or before Sunday, December 19.
