Scottish Cup First Round Highlights

Glenafton Athletic’s debut in the Scottish Cup was a successful one as they swept Threave Rovers aside in the first round.

The Scottish Junior Cup champions scored twice in each half against their visitors from Castle Douglas.

Mick McCann put two well-taken goals into the bottom corner and another header nearly gave him a hat-trick.

Joe Andrew and Dale Moore added the others after the break at Loch Park for the New Cumnock men.

Glenafton’s reward is a second round tie away to Highland League side Deveronvale.

Manager Craig McEwan guided Glens to a trophy treble last season and things were comfortable when McCann’s effort found the far corner after eight minutes.

The Ayr-born forward doubled his tally with another calm finish from Connor Lynass’s pass.

Andrew’s goal was a brilliant curling effort from the edge of the box, then Moore was on hand from close range to cap a straightforward day for Glenafton.

Elsewhere, there were big wins for Banks O’Dee, Brora Rangers, Clachnacuddin, Selkirk and Spartans while Civil Service Strollers, Colville Park, Deveronvale, Edinburgh University, Formartine United, Fraserburgh, Keith, Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale and Nairn County also progressed. Wick Academy’s tie with Stirling University went to a replay following a 2-2 draw.

The remaining first round tie between BSC Glasgow and Dalbeattie Star takes place on Sunday.
