ELGIN City will make history by hosting an Irish league club for the first time in the Irn Bru Cup.
City have been drawn at home to Bray Wanderers, who are currently sixth in the League of Ireland.
Manager Jim Weir recalled playing for St Johnstone in a friendly away to the County Wicklow side during his own career, but admitted he knows nothing about their current team.
“I know they play at a decent standard over there, but I’m pleased it’s a home draw,” he said.
The Irish side’s squad includes defender Tim Clancy, who played in the Premiership for St Johnstone, Motherwell and Kilmarnock.
Buckie Thistle also landed a home draw and will play Dunfermline Athletic for the second year running.
Jags lost 5-3 to the Pars at Victoria Park in the Scottish Cup in 2016 and will renew their acquaintance with the Championship side next month.
Dunfermline thrashed Elgin 6-0 in the Betfred Cup earlier this season.
