SCOTTISH Cup holders Inverness Caledonian Thistle will start the defence of their cup either to Stirling Albion or Scottish Lowland League team Cumbernauld Colts

ICT manager – John Hughes may have to take his side 159 miles south to Cumbernauld to face off against the junior outfit but who are the Colts?

Founded in 1969 the club ran at all age groups and competed in the Caledonian Amateur Football League before entering the Lowland League in 2015-16 season.

However, before the Colts can dream of facing off against the Caley Jags they will have to get past Scottish League Two side Stirling Albion at the Forthbank Stadium tonight after the tie was originally postponed.

The draw took place today at Hampden Park.

Stirling Albion or Cumbernauld Colts will play Inverness Caledonian Thistle on the weekend of the 9th/10th January 2016.
