Cumnock Juniors and Glenafton Athletic's Scottish Junior Cup semi-final match has been moved away from Auchinleck's Beechwood Park, both clubs have announced.

The last four showdown was due to take place just a short trip away for both teams, at fellow East Ayrshire rivals Auchinleck Talbot's home ground.

Some safety concerns were raised by both sets of supporters over the logistics of playing the match in Auchinleck on a Friday evening.

One Cumnock fan said the idea of having people from Cumnock and New Cumnock in Auchinleck on a Friday night was "an accident waiting to happen".

However, both teams have announced that the match has now been switched to Irvine's Meadow Park instead.

The match will still take place on Friday, April 14 with a 7.30pm kick-off.

Both clubs are waiting to see whether the match will be fully ticketed before releasing ticketing information for the clash.

The Nock have not tasted Scottish Junior Cup glory since 1989, having appeared in their last final in 2008.

Glenafton were last triumphant in this cup back in 2017, when Alan Cairns' thunderous strike saw off Auchinleck Talbot in the final.

The winner of April's derby tie will face either Rutherglen Glencairn or Dundee side East Craigie in the final.
