IT has been a draw of contrasts for Brechin City in the opening rounds of the cup competition for season 2012-2013.
All going well, and assuming there are no last minute hitches, the reds can look forward to being the first club to take on the Newco Rangers in competitive action.
The Gers replace Dundee as City’s opposition in the opening round of the Ramsdens Cup this Sunday (kick-off 3.05 pm).
The following Saturday (August 4) and Brechin head for Stenhousemuir to face the Warriors in the opening round of the Scottish Communities League Cup.
That game, at Ochilview, will kick off at 3 pm.
