Mid and East Lothian football clubs found out today (Monday) who they will face in the first round of the Scottish Cup.

The draw was made at Edinburgh Castle by the 2012 victorious captain, Marius Zaliukas of Heart of Midlothian, along with SFA commercial director Kenny MacLeod and David Russell of sponsors William Hill.

First step on the road to Hampden, the ties will be played on Saturday, August 25.

The two Midlothian clubs – Bonnyrigg Rose and Whitehill Welfare - have both landed home ties. Bonnyrigg will welcome Girvan to New Dundas Park, while Whitehill will play host to Inverurie Loco Works.

However, East Lothian’s Preston Athletic will have to see off Fort William if they are to welcome Nairn County to Prestonpans.
