William Hill Scottish Cup 4th Rnd Draw

PostedNovember 5, 2012


Following our emphatic 8-1 win over Vale of Leithen we have been handed another home tie in the Fourth Round of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The draw was made at Hampden Park on Monday afternoon and we will face Clydesdale Bank SPL side St Johnstone at Central Park on Saturday 1st December.
This is only the third time that the sides have drawn each other in the Scottish Cup with both of the previous ties going to replays.
Back in season 1930/31 we met at Central Park on 4th February 1931 in a Second Round tie and then Second Division side Saints earned a 1-1 draw against First Division Cowden.
The replay took place seven days later and saw us cruise to a 4-0 win at the old Muirton Park.
We were to go onto beat St Bernard’s 3-0 at Central Park before we lost 1-0 to Motherwell, also at Central Park in the Quarter Final which has been so far our best ever run in the Scottish Cup.
It was to be 35 years before the sides were drawn against each other once more the Second Round tie on 28th February 1966 saw a draw at Central Park with the sides sharing six goals.
The replay at Muirton Park the following day saw the Perth side run out 3-0 winners.
