Glenrothes advanced to the last 32 thanks to a penalty shoot out win over Rosyth.

Benny Andrew has urged his Glenrothes players to grab the chance to write their names into Junior Scottish Cup club history.

Glens are on a fine run in the prestigious national competition, reaching the fourth round.

A win over Rosyth put them in the last 32, with the club being drawn at home to Hermes in the next round.

It’s a case of history repeating for boss Andrew, whose first game in charge of the club was a third round Scottish Cup tie against the Aberdeen club back in 2014.

The Glens won 3-0 that day, and the manager would love to see a repeat when the two meet again in January 2016.

Andrew said: “Our first game in charge was against them and I believe they’re going well again in the league.

“But so are we and it’ll be a game that we want to go and win.

“They’ll be favourites for the game because they play in a higher league up there, but this is a great opportunity for our boys.

“When you’re in the cup at this stage you’re in with some really big clubs and we want to stay in it and get to the last 16.”

Before then, though, Glens travel to Blairgowrie on league duty this weekend.
