EAST STIRLINGSHIRE have been handed a chance to right an administration wrong from last season.

The Scottish Cup draw, held in an outlet of sponsors William Hill this week, paired the club with Buckie Thistle.

It’s a re-match of last season’s tie which saw the Shire sent out of the tournament on a technicality after a calamitous meeting between the pair.

Buckie, wearing Shire’s change shirt because of a wardrobe malfunction had a player sent-off shortly before half-time at Ochilview - for fighting with his own team-mate.

Shire won the game with a strike from Kevin Cawley, but were then dismissed from the competition for breaking elegibility rules.

They failed to register on-loan Falkirk keeper Michael Andrews with the Scottish Football Association, so were disqualified and the Highland League club progressed in the competition.

The tie will be played on October 22.
