The First and Second rounds of the Trade Radiators South Challenge Cup were drawn yesterday (Sunday) and give Lok brand new opposition in the shape of Eglinton FC. Voted into the West of Scotland League this weekend, they are effectively a rebranding of Kilwinning Rangers AFC, based at the Kilwinning Sports Club facilty that Kilwinning Rangers have part of. The name comes from nearby Eglinton Country Park, lands of the Earls of Eglinton, within which is a bridge known as the Eglinton Tournament Bridge, built to provide access to grounds for a medieval jousting reenactment festival in the 1839 (though the present bridge is slightly more recent).
The new club have taken their nickname, the Jousters, from this event and the bridge that recalls it.
The winner of this tie, to be played on 20th August at Newlandsfield, faces Clydebank in the Second Round.
