Sixteen-year-old Owen Loveland scored on his debut to help City beat hosts Stirling University 4-0 on Saturday.

Their reward was a trip to Easter Road to take on a Hibs side which has been going well in the Premiership this season.

Loveland came off City’s bench to score in a convincing win away to their Lowland League opponents.

He was one of three players scoring their first goals in Elgin colours.

Rabin Omar opened his account for the Black and Whites before Brian Cameron gave the visitors an early 2-0 lead.

Kerr Hay also grabbed his breakthrough goal for Elgin and Loveland finished things off.

All three Highland League clubs in third round action exited the tournament.

Fraserburgh became the third north side to lose to Auchinleck Talbot in the cup this season, losing 1-0 at Bellslea.

Brora lost by the same score at Cowdenbeath while Championship Queen of the South were too strong for Formartine, winning 4-1.

Buckie Thistle drew 0-0 at Inverurie Locos in a league match while Andy Macrae scored twice for Forres Mechanics in their 2-1 win over Keith.

Lossiemouth led Deveronvale through Moray Taylor’s opener but a Robert Scott hat-trick helped the Banff men to eventually win 4-2 at Grant Park.

Rothes ended a run of eight games without a win, beating bottom side Fort William 5-0.

Kris Duncan, Gary Kerr, Jaime Wilson, Jack Maley and Bruce Milne all scored for the Speysiders.

Cove came from behind to win 4-2 at Clach and make it sixteen league wins in a row.

Huntly won 3-0 at Turriff and Strathspey beat Wick 4-2.
