Highland trip for Toon in IRN-BRU Cup last 16

Tue 05 Sep 2017


Peterhead have been handed an away tie against Inverness Caley Thistle in the IRN-BRU Cup third round.

The Blue Toon, who knocked out Annan with a 2-0 win last weekend, will travel to the Highlands on the 7th or 8th October.

Jim McInally's men reached the final of the competition in 2015/16 and the last 16 draw, made today, means defender Jason Brown will get a chance to face his former employers, who defeated Aberdeen's under 20s 4-2 at Glebe Park.

21 year old Brown said: "You can build momentum in the cup and we want to go as far as we can."

"We know about the great experience the club had in reaching the final a couple of seasons ago and that gives us an incentive to keep pushing on and hopefully do well in the third round."
