William Hill Scottish Cup First Round Draw And Odds Unveiled

The sponsors unveiled their odds for the 2012/13 William Hill Scottish Cup following the first draw at Edinburgh Castle this afternoon.

Scottish FA Commercial Director Kenny MacLeod, last season’s winning Hearts captain Marius Zaliuskas and David Russell, William Hill Group HR Director, conducted the first round draw.

Coldstream, who had a seven hour round-trip to Wick in last season ‘Cup, face another long trip to the Highlands. ‘The Streamers’ will face Fraserburgh in the opening round of Scotland’s premier football competition.

Several games could lay claim to being the tie of the round, but the stand out fixture looks set to be the game between Irvine Meadow against Gala Fairydean. The two sides are filled with quality and it should be a rip-roaring first round tie.

Celtic are the 4/5 favourites to lift the cup, while Hearts are 8/1 with the sponsors to retain their crown.

‘The first round draw has thrown up some very juicy ties,’’ said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘and we just can’t wait for the action to get underway.’
