Aberdeen minnows Cove Rangers are set to make history when they face Kilmarnock’s Europa League conquerors Connah’s Quay Nomads in the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup as they play in their first-ever live, televised match.
After making it to the SPFL this year after beating Berwick Rangers in the playoffs, Cove have made a strong start to life as a league club and will see their clash with the Welsh side broadcast on S4C.
Cove are currently managed by Hearts legend Paul Hartley and secured the signing of former Aberdeen star Fraser Fyvie on a short-term deal.
The chance to take on the Welsh side will be a fantastic test for Cove and give them a chance to continue to build on their impressive early-season form.
Hartley’s side sits top of League Two with seven points from three games but needed a last-minute winner against Cowdenbeath in their last game to avoid losing their unbeaten record so far.
The Aberdeen-based side travel to Wales on September 7th and won’t be the only Scottish side in action outside of Scotland in the third round of the competition as Rangers Colts travel to face Ballymena United, Ayr face Wrexham and Hearts Colts take on Waterford.
