SONS have landed a home tie in the first round of the Scottish Communities League Cup against Albion Rovers on August 4th.

The Scottish Government is renewing its sponsorship of this competition, with funding support of £1.7 million.

And £500,000 of the money will come from the hugely successful Cashback for Communities programme – seizing ill-gotten gains from criminals and investing it to help young people.

First Minister Alex Salmond announced the government sponsorship for the 2012-13 season earlier today as he made the draw for the first round of the tournament at Stenhousemuir’s Ochilview Park.

Part of the sponsorship funding will go towards getting more young people involved in sport and helping football league clubs become community sports hubs, to help more people take part in physical activity.

Manager Alan Adamson said: “It’s a home tie and that’s all we can ask for in the early stages.

“Like all our games, it’s one to look forward to and the Wee Rovers will be most welcome at the Bet Butler Stadium.”
