There’s just one of our teams left in the East of Scotland Cup after the first round of action took place at the weekend.

Forfar West End ran out deserved 3-1 winners at Kennoway Star Hearts thanks to a brace from Graeme Hart and a solitary strike from Matty Reynolds.

Kirrie Thistle were surprisingly thrashed by Crossgates Primrose, the away side grabbing a 4-1 win - Russell with the only Thistle goal.

Forfar Albion almost grabbed their first win of the season at Kinnoull after Geekie put them in front but the hosts fought back and Albion ended up losing 4-2; the first win of the season is definitely approaching.

This weekend sees a return to league action as West End visit Dundee Violet, Kirrie host Newburgh and Albion visit Luncarty.

In the amateurs, Lowson United got their first win of the campaign at home to Broughty United, a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Duncan and Farquharson.
