Broughty Athletic’s bid to retain the GA Engineering Cup starts on Saturday the 25th November when they make the short journey across the River Tay to face their former assistant manager Charlie King’s side, Tayport, in the first round.

The Fed defeated their first round opponents 5-1 in the final of the 2016/17 GA Cup at Tannadice Park to win the trophy for the first time with now Tayport manager Charlie King winning a winners medal whilst assistant manager with the Fed.

Kick off at The Canniepairt is scheduled for 1-45pm. Should the game end in a draw after 90mins then a penalty shoot-out will determine who enters the 2nd round.
