Irvine Meadow co-manager Colin Spence says their Scottish Cup First Round tie against Auchinleck Talbot should be broadcast live on the BBC as the tie of the round.

Meadow learned their fate for the First Round of the cup on Sunday – and landed a tie against fellow West of Scotland Football League Premier Division side Auchinleck Talbot at Medda Park.

Speaking to the Times, Spence said: “I think it is a fantastic draw and it will be the tie of the round no doubt about it.

“I think this game will be picked by the BBC to be televised and they will come to Medda Park with the cameras. Auchinleck are massive favourites to beat us, their budget is double what ours is and they are experienced in this competition.

“But I am pretty positive we will give them a game and from now until September 18 we will do our homework on them.

“It will hopefully be a full house no matter when it is and if our home support get behind you never know ... it just might be the upset of the round.”

To get the tie, Medda had to first get past Musselburgh Athletic at the weekend in the Preliminary Round of the Scottish Cup.

Things did not get off to the best start at Medda Park for the hosts, with John McManus putting Musselburgh ahead early on.

However a second half turnaround made sure that Medda were in the hat for the First Round,

with an own goal levelling the scoring.

Connor Boyd then grabbed a late winner for Medda to extend their unbeaten run to eight games.

It is a good run to be on ahead

of their meeting with derby

rivals Kilwinning Rangers this weekend.

Medda lost to the Buffs in pre-season and Spence says they are looking for revenge for the 4-2 Eglinton Cup defeat.

He told the Times: “By all accounts I think we let ourselves down that day and they game to Meadow Park and dominated us.

“The one thing I can guarantee is that will not happen this weekend, we will be a different beast, and we will be taking the game to Kilwinning.”
