University of Stirling to face Dundee United in Scottish Cup

1 min read

University of Stirling FC will travel to Tannadice after drawing Dundee United in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

The students made history as they beat Albion Rovers on Saturday after Euan McGill‘s extra time goal sealed a 1-0 victory. In the process Stirling became the first University side to reach the last 32 in over 50 years.

Following the fourth-round draw, head coach Chris Geddes said: “It’s an exciting game for the whole club and University.

“The boys will really be looking forward to it but there is a lot of games before then so our focus will be on them.

“But it’s a good one for the boys.”

After leading his side to victory at Cliftonhill on Saturday, captain James Berry could not wait for the draw. He said: “We can draw anyone in Scotland in the next round now.

“It’s hard to believe, but what a feeling.”

The Tangerines are two-time Scottish Cup winners but currently sit bottom of the Premiership after a poor start to the campaign.

The tie will take place on the weekend of January 21, 2023.

Stirling travel to Nottingham this Wednesday with the chance to claim a third consecutive BUCS Premier North title.
