Forfar Away In Cup

PostedOctober 6, 2014


In Monday afternoon's draw for the Third Round of the William Hill Scottish Cup we have been handed an away game with League 1 pacesetters Forfar Athletic at Station Park on Saturday 1st November.

This now see's us play our fourth successive game away from Central Park. After Saturday's goal less draw at Dumbarton we face away Championship games at Alloa and Falkirk before facing Dick Campbell's side.

Amazingly despite playing the Loons many times over the years this will be only the second time that the sides have met in the Scottish Cup with the only other tie seeing us run out 3-2 winners at Central Park in season 1979/80.

It also throws up the chance for Cowden defender Iain Campbell to face his old team mates and his dad! following his summer move from the Loons who have former Central Parkers Mark Baxter, Martyn Fotheringham, Stephen Husband and Stuart Malcolm in their squad.

Meanwhile our under 20 side have been also been handed an away tie in the Third Round of the Scottish Youth Cup and will face Ayr United at Somerset Park on Sunday 2nd November.

The Honest Men currently lie in 3rd place in the Development League West
