Hearts among Peterhead's cup opponents

Fri 02 Jun 2017


Peterhead will face Hearts in the Betfred League Cup group stage, the draw for which took place this evening.

The Blue Toon will also come up against Dunfermline, East Fife and Elgin in North Group B.

The winner from all eight sections will progress to the knock-out phase alongside the best four runners-up.

Last season, Peterhead exited the competition in the second round after a 5-0 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox.  

But it was an impressive effort from Jim McInally's team to progress beyond the group stage.  

The Balmoor club managed an eye-catching 2-1 win over Premiership side Dundee after they had already beaten Forfar.  

In between those victories, they were beaten by East Fife but their marathon penalty shoot-out triumph against Dumbarton saw them prevail.

This year's competition gets underway on the weekend of the 15th July.

Dates, venues and kick-off times will be revealed in due course.
