The draw for the third round of the Scottish FA Youth Cup was made earlier today at Hampden Park and has drawn up a few very interesting ties.
Last season's competition was certainly intruiging with Hibernian ultimately being crowned champions after a thrilling final against Aberdeen. They enter the side in this round and have been given a home tie against Stirling Albion, who also enter the competition in this round.
Aberdeen will be thankful that they have a relatively short distance to travel for their game against Inverurie Loco Works, who eased into the third round with a 6-1 win against Keith.
The full draw is as follows:
Inverness Caledonian Thistle vs Hamilton Academical
Rangers vs East Kilbride
Queen of the South vs Dundee United
