MORAY clubs landed tough draws in Wednesday’s Scottish Junior Cup second round draw.Scottish Junior FA

Forres Thistle have been drawn away to Ayrshire giants Auchinleck Talbot, who have won the competition a record 11 times.

And Buckie Rovers will also travel to face former cup holders in Hill of Beath, who won the tournament in 1990.

Superleague Dufftown are the only Moray side to get a home draw against Fife outfit Oakley United, who play in the East Region South Division.

Forres will make the trip to the 4000 capacity Beechwood Park to play Auchinleck, who as well as having a fine Scottish Junior Cup pedigree have also enjoyed success in the Scottish Cup.

Six years ago they reached the fourth round where they drew Hearts away, and took 2000 fans to Tynecastle where they were only defeated 1-0 by the Premier League side.

Buckie go to the 2000 capacity Keirs Park to face Hill of Beath, who are managed by former Ross County, Raith Rovers and East Fife player Kevin Fotheringham.

Based near Cowdenbeath in Fife, they defeated New Elgin 5-0 in the last round of the competition.
