DUNBAR United manager Geoff Jones admits he is “delighted” with the club’s Scottish Junior Cup fifth-round draw.

The Seasiders were pitted against Ayrshire giants Glenafton Athletic, but Jones is not phased by the prospect of taking on one of the top clubs in Scottish junior football.

Glens are second in the West Superleague Premier Division. They have been beaten just once in the league all season, but Jones is looking forward to the challenge.

He told Courier Sport: “It’s a great draw and one the players deserve for their efforts this season.”

The Seasiders boss, at the helm since the summer of 2014, is under no illusion about the challenge facing his squad next Saturday (February 18).

Jones added: “It’s David vs Goliath.

“They’re one of the two or three best sides left in the draw. It’s a massive challenge, but one we will confront head on. We will prepare properly as we always do and have a right go – you never know what can happen.”

A big crowd is expected at New Countess Park – more than 500 fans watched as the South Division outfit dispatched Benburb in the last round.

“It’s a massive day,” Jones said.

“We have never played a home tie in the last 16 at New Countess Park before, so I’m very proud of the boys.

“With a big support I’d give us a wee chance against anyone at home – our record this season backs that up.”

Without looking too far ahead, the ex-striker, who succeeded Davie Lees in the New Countess Park dugout, said it would be “monumental” for the club to reach the last eight.

He added: “The players are such a great group and they would deservedly be heroes for a long time. It’s my job to keep everyone’s feet on the ground, but I’d love to prove a few people wrong.

“Taking the club to the quarter-finals would be an achievement.

“To the town, committee and our supporters, there’s no denying it would be a monumental achievement for our wee club to get to the last eight.

“Win, lose or draw, I’m proud of the lads and the journey we are on together will continue whatever happens.”
