Holders Broughty Athletic crashed out of the East Region Cup at the first hurdle following a 3-1 penalty shoot-out away to Dundee North End.

North End took the lead midway through the first half but Broughty equalised just before halftime with a 20yrd strike from Alassan Jones (pictured).

With the game tied at 1-1 after 90mins, it went straight to a penalty shoot-out to determine who enters the hat for the next round draw and it was the home side with a 3-1 shoot-out win sending Broughty out of the competition.

Broughty are back on league business next Saturday when they welcome Luncarty to Whitton Park.
