SYFA Cup 2016/17 - U14 R4 draw

Written by 
Wednesday saw the Scottish Youth FA draw the ties for the fourth round of the inspiresport Scottish Youth FA Cup, hot on the heels of a packed weekend of third round action. The last 32 stage will take place on the weekend of November 19th & 20th. It is the penultimate round of the calendar year, with round five scheduled for early December, before the winter break.
Last season's winners at the 2003 age group, Spartans Reds, are no longer in the competition. However, the club still has representation in the form of their Spartans Youth squad, who have a home tie against Fife side Elgin Star. Their fellow finalists Leith Athletic are still in the mix too, with a trip to Airdrie United.
One tie that stands out is the matching of CBC Hilton of Aberdeen and St Bernards BC of Dalkeith in Midlothian. CBC are a newly promoted side to the top flight of the ADJFA, whereas Saints are a second tier team in the South East. Both have done tremendously well to reach this stage and one will make the last 16.
Abroath Lads Club are the first Angus team out of the hat and they'll be looking to go on a Scottish Cup run for the second successive season. They await the winner or Pollok v Irvine Meadow, to determine which west coast destination they visit.
Drumsagard were rampant in the West Region last year, before falling to eventual winners Spartans in the national cup. They host the last remaining Scottish Borders team, Peebles.
Johnstone Burgh (pictured, right) have put a frustrating league season to the side and are excellent in the Scottish Cup. They face their toughest test yet with visit of top Ayrshire side Tass Thistle. Last year's semi-finalists Barrhead will be looking to go one better, but will have to get the better of South Lanarkshire outfit Milton Rovers.
Two teams with Scottish Cup previous are Hamilton Accies and Hutchison Vale. Accies were recent winners at the 1999 age group, whereas Vale have endured a drought over the last few years, following  a purple patch of Scottish Cup wins.  
To finish off our round up, there is a derby to savour. Glenrothes Strollers host near neighbours Blue Brazil, ensuring Fife will have at least one team in the last 16.
