It’s lift off for the 2012/13 William Hill Scottish Cup

To celebrate the launch of Scotland's Premier Cup competition - the sponsors, William Hill brought the oldest football cup in the world to the RAF base in Lossiemouth.

The army town's football club, Lossiemouth FC, face a short 44 mile trip up to Inverness where they will face fellow Highland League side - Clachnacuddin.

Cup sponsors, William Hill make Clachnacuddin their 1/2 favourites to win the tie, but Lossiemouth midfielder Colin Charlesworth is hoping the bookies and the opposition are set for a turbulent ride.

"The William Hill Scottish Cup is always the biggest fixture of the season for me, there is a great buzz around Lossiemouth and I'm hopeful of a large travelling support and a good result at the end of the day! It's never easy and we just have to make sure we're ready for it come Saturday."

Lossiemouth manager, Kevin Walker has a second round tie with Glasgow Rangers on his radar, but he knows his young guns must be at their best to land a place in the next round.

"We have a lot of young boys in our side and Saturday will be a big challenge for the boys. It should be a fantastic day out and one we are all really looking forward to. It's been tough time of late in the area so hopefully we can go out on Saturday and give the town a lift and you never know who we can draw in the next round."

In 2009/11 - Lossie's 4-1 win over Newton Stewart brought to an end a losing streak of almost 54 years in the nation's premier knock-out tournament. The brave Highland League outfit went down 0-2 to Third Division side Albion Rovers in the second round. Last season they went out in the first round to the highly rated Auchinleck Talbot.
