GLENAFTON Athletic could be left thousands of pounds out of pocket after a “technical issue” annulled the original Scottish Cup draw.

The New Cumnock side had been handed a lucrative home tie against Queen of the South before Brora Rangers were drawn out of the hat twice.

With 15 of the 16 ties already drawn, the Scottish Football Association were left with egg on their face again after the 2016 quarter-final draw ended in a similar farce.

Eventually, Glenafton were handed an away tie against Livingston in the third round.

Glenafton’s president Ian Young felt his team had lost out on a potential four figure sum as a result.

Ian said: “We reckoned it would have been worth a good bit of money. We could lose a few thousand by not drawing Queen of the South.

“With the support coming up from Dumfries, we think we would have had a better payday with the Queen of the South tie than the Livingston one.”

Glens travel to West Lothian on Saturday, November 18 to take on the Championship side at Almondvale.

Regardless of the draw, Ian still recognised how important the game will be to Glenafton.

He added: “When Queen of the South came out, everyone was on a high because it was one of the kinda local big teams.

“Once the euphoria had calmed down, it was still a good draw and it will still be the biggest game in the club’s history.”

Glens beat Deveronvale 2-0 at Princess Royal Park in Banff, Aberdeenshire to reach the third round in their first time in the competition at the weekend.
