Berwick Rangers face a trip into the unknown this weekend when they travel to take on non-league Culter in the third round of the Scottish Cup.

It will be the first ever meeting between the two sides and manager Ian Little is taking nothing for granted.

“It is the proverbial banana-skin for us,” said the Berwick boss, “and we will treat Culter with every respect.”

Culter are situated at Peterculter in Aberdeenshire.

They play in the Northern Junior League - they were champions last season, and this season they are currently unbeaten with three wins out of three.

They have also qualified for their own League Cup Final, where they will meet Banks o Dee at Keith on November 12.

In the first round of the Cup they beat Lossiemouth in a replay and in the second round they saw off Newton Stewart.

They are currently averaging over four goals a game and have only lost two of 17 fixtures in all competitions, so Berwick cannot afford to treat them lightly.

Berwick Rangers Travel Club are running a supporters’ bus to the game which is fully subscribed.
