Livingston will be given a phenomenal IRN-BRU send-off as the club prepares to set off on a 300-mile journey south of the border to face the Welsh champions in the second round of the IRN-BRU Cup.
It’s the first time in the club’s history that the Lions will play a competitive fixture in Wales as they look for revenge in a reversal of last season’s IRN-BRU Cup quarter-final against The New Saints.
Livingston couldn’t convert their chances in torrential conditions back in November, going down 3-0 to a clinical TNS side which included a strike from former Motherwell and Dumbarton midfielder Steven Saunders.
To inspire the team to success ahead of the televised fixture, an IRN-BRU piper dressed in a ginger coloured tartan will blast out renditions of famous football terrace tunes to help the Lions and their fans roar into action.
For the first time in Scottish football history, League of Ireland sides Sligo Rovers and Bray Wanderers will enter the competition in the second round alongside cross-border teams TNS and Connah’s Quay Nomads from Wales, as well as Crusaders and Linfield from Northern Ireland.
Livingston’s away trip to TNS on Sunday will be broadcast live on S4C with a 2.45pm kick-off at Park Hall Stadium.
The winners will go into the hat for the IRN-BRU Cup third round draw which will take place at 1.00pm on Tuesday 5 September at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow.
