The dust had hardly settled on Haddington’s famous win over BSC Glasgow when everyone’s attention turned to the draw for the Scottish Cup first round proper which was broadcast live at 10.00am last Sunday morning. The Hi Hi’s were first out the draw and they were paired with the winners of the all Highland League clash between Formartine United and Turriff United. The tie will be played at Millfield on Boxing Day but this historic match will have to be played behind closed doors, preventing a possible ground record being set at Millfield and also depriving the Hi Hi’s of some much needed income.

Haddington are back on league duty tomorrow when they travel to face Thornton Hibs in Fife. With their unbeaten run stretching to twelve matches, let’s hope none of the squad are superstitious.
