The northern clubs will meet in the round of 16 of the Scottish Junior Cup

The East End host Newmachar United in the Scottish Junior Cup round of 16 next month after the two safely negotiated their second-round matches.

The End’s game with Sunnybank, which was traded to Heathryfold, ended in penalty kicks after Josh Bolton’s brace was nullified by efforts from Andrew Mutch and Mikey Taylor.

The Premier League team outscored him 6-5 on penalties.

A goal from Neil Scott, after some excellent play, and a header from Ryan Whelan accounted for Letham United.

At Glenury Park, Stonehaven ended Culter’s hopes in another tie decided on penalties. Keith Horne put Hive in front before Willie Mathers leveled, the home team advancing 6-5 on penalties.

Then there is Ellon United, who beat Bathgate Thistle 3-1 on penalties, after the tie ended 1-1 with Joey Airens on the scoresheet for United, who now travel to Dundee East Craigie in the next round.

Stoneywood Parkvale’s game with Bellshill Athletic was called off in the second half, with the visitors winning 2-1, when James Olufome of the home team suffered a suspected broken leg and there was a long wait for an ambulance.

The game has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 8.

Elsewhere, it was a case of what might have been if challenges from the remaining north sides failed.

Hermes lost 2-0 at Beith, Forres Thistle lost by a single goal at home to Thorniewood United, Banchory St Ternan and Rothie Rovers lost 5-1 at home to Gartcairn and Glenafton respectively and Glentanar lost heavily at Darvel.
