William Hill Scottish Cup 1st Round Draw – Broxburn Athletic

The draw for the William Hill Scottish Cup 1st Round was made tonight live on BBC and Shire have been drawn to play East of Scotland Premier Division team, Broxburn Athletic, away on 21st September.

This will be the 1st ever meeting of the teams though Shire have previously met 4 other teams from the West Lothian town during our history, namely, Broxburn Shamrock, Broxburn, Broxburn St. Andrews and Broxburn United. Our last 1st team game at Broxburn was against Broxburn United which took place on 17/10/1925 when we lost out 5-6 in an incredible Scottish Division Two match.

Shire have played at Broxburn Athletic’s Albyn Park before when we played in the Scottish Reserve League West in the 1990s and indeed one of Shire’s home Reserve matches against Rangers Reserves took place there.
