So possibly more financially worthwhile for Irvine Meadow to play their Cup game on the Saturday afternoon (higher gate takings and associated secondary spend) than on the Monday night.
Maybe but TV coverage usually brings in opportunities for additional advertising income as well as wider exposure. We will never know.

That’s what I thought they normally have those electronic advert boards at BBC Scotland live games you would think there would be a reasonable fee to be made from that.
Also it raises the profile of your club.
It’s perhaps surprising that the SFA give you the option to opt out of being live on the telly, can’t have happened much.
Most clubs would be happy to get their 15 minutes of fame (well 90 in this case!).

Would any 'Shire v Fort William replay (never say never!) actually be at Claggan Park?
If it is playable, yes. It's only the Highland League that have outlawed it. Cup rules apply.

However, unlikely to be playable in which case the SFA will decide a suitable venue, probably Inverness, Strathspey or Dumbarton.

They’ve probably just nominated it not expecting to win.

My Predictions:

Banks O’Dee v Turriff United
Banks of Dee to win by quite a few. Turriff are bowfing this season.

Berwick Rangers v Gretna 2008
Easy for Berwick - possibly 4-0 or more. No Gretna fans in attendance

Blackburn United v Rothes
Quite close but Rothes should just shade it. Game will not end with 22 men on the park

Brechin City v Vale of Leithen
Double figures for Brechin. Manager should resign of they don't get ten

Broomhill v Glasgow University
Broomhill to win fairly easily, sadly

Caledonian Braves v University of Stirling
Very tight and very dull. Los Bravos to win by a single goal.

Clachnacuddin v Dunipace
Could be close but Clach are doing well at the moment so they will win narrowly to delight the Merkinchers

Clydebank v Dalkeith Thistle

Fairly straightforward for Clydebank in their first ever Scottish Cup tie since being formed in 2003.

Coldstream v East Kilbride

Comfortable win for EK

Cumbernauld Colts v Buckie Thistle
Buckie should be too strong for the Colts but a long Friday night journey might affect them. Buckie support wuill be pished. 4-0 for Buckie in a replay.

Deveronvale v Haddington Athletic

Tough game for Haddington but they are capable of giving a struggling Vale a hard game. Another replay.

Dunbar United v Camelon Juniors

Dunbar's home advantage to sea the Seasiders though against the Mariners

East Stirlingshire v Fort William
Shire are not that great but should still win by 7 or 8. Del Ure to bring himself on after 75 minutes and miss 3 great chances

Formartine United v Cumnock Juniors

Close game - could well go to a replay. Assuming Cumnock can find Pitmedden

Forres Mechanics v Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic
Bonnyrigg will be too strong for the Can Cans even at their own Mosset Park.

Fraserburgh v Sauchie Juniors
Fraserburgh are the best team in the HL at the moment - they will win this one comfortably.

Golspie Sutherland v Civil Service Strollers
Stroll for the Strollers. Expect a comfortable away win.

Huntly v Hill of Beath Hawthorn
Two teams struggling in their Leagues. Huntly's physicality might be the decisive factor. Narrow home win

Inverurie Loco Works v Jeanfield Swifts
A year ago I'd have gone for Jeanfield but their form has shaded. Narrow home win.

Irvine Meadow XI v Auchinleck Talbot
Nobody outside Ayrshire gives a toss. Away win.

Keith v Darvel
Comfortable win for Darvel despite their current dodgy League form

Lossiemouth v Preston Athletic
A rare Cup win for the Coasters. Lossie that is.

Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale v Edinburgh University
LTHV have every chance of beating their Lowland league opponents

Nairn County v Strathspey Thistle
Close game expected in the Dava Derby. Nairn to edge it.

Newtongrange Star v Dalbeattie Star
Dalbeattie will win this - Star are poor this season

Penicuik Athletic v Tranent Juniors
Tie of the round pits two of the top East sides against each other. All-ticket at Penicuik Park

Spartans v Gala Fairydean Rovers
Dull. Spartans to win narrowly.

Tynecastle v Brora Rangers
In previous years this would have been shootey-in for Brora. Tynecastle might spring a wee surprise here.

Wick Academy v Bo’ness United
Bo'ness will be favourites but nobody gets a straightforward game at Harmsworth Park. Strong referee required

Wigtown & Bladnoch v St Cuthbert Wanderers
Ended 1-8 in a league game 2 weeks ago. A similar scoreline is likely this time in the Young Farmers Derby.

Any major surprises today? Sauchie Juniors' 2-1 victory at Fraserburgh or Jeanfield Swifts' 3-0 win at Inverurie Locos perhaps? Or Brechin City only winning 5-0 at home against Vale of Leithen?

Sauchie one is result of the day Highland League leaders beaten at home by an EOS Premier side at home.
Overall has been a bad day for the Highlanders.

Did Fraserburgh rest some players for this game? It was the result that stood out for me

Brora v Albion looks like the stand out game, which could go either way, although Brora look to be slight favourites. For a shock result then Edinburgh City to lose, both Wick and Bo'ness will be tough opponents, but it would be a shock result.

Ckydebank v Elgin and Stranraer v Darvel for me as the stand outs.

Bamkies at home to an SPFL side for the first time will draw a good crowd, The Stranraer one should be good also big money Darvel have quite a few SPFL standard players in their squad.

If Bo'ness win their replay their game at Edinburgh City would be of interest.

I'll guess the Bankies game as the TV pick.
