Betfred league cup draw
Annan Athletic have been drawn in Group F along with Motherwell, Rangers, Stranraer and East Stirlingshire for this summers Betfred League Cup first round.
In each group teams will play each other once in a round-robin format on each of 16, 20, 23, 27 and 30 July (subject to live broadcast selections). In the First Round Group Stage there are three points for a win and one point for a draw, with drawn matches in the Group Stage going straight to a penalty shoot-out and the winner of the penalty shoot-out being awarded a bonus point.
Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs won’t be involved in the competition’s early round due to their participation in European football.
Just 12 teams will qualify from the group stages, the winner from each group and four best runners-up joined by the four European clubs in the second round before the final is played at Hampden on November 27.
Here’s the draw in full….
