Invergordon will face Newtongrange Star in their first ever Scottish Cup game.

The club have benefited from a new rule put in place by the Scottish FA under which winners of the North Caledonian League – regardless of their licensing status – will earn a place in the competition.

As North Caley champions last season, Invergordon are the first to take advantage of the change and joined Golspie Sutherland and Fort William in the draw.

They will have the home advantage against the East of Scotland League side, who received a bye into the first round proper last season before losing in a replay to Dalbeattie Star.

The matches will take place on the weekend of August 27, a week after the North Caledonian League kicks off for the 2022/23 campaign.
