The Kilmarnock Premier Sports Cup opponents were revealed this afternoon.

Tommy Wright’s team are seeded despite relegation to the championship.

They will face Morton, Clyde, Stranraer and East Kilbride in Group G

The group stages will start on July 10.

Last season, the Ayrshire side were knocked out in the group stage after being forced to forfeit Falkirk and then field a squad made up mostly of under-18s due to an outbreak of Covid-19.

The previous season, Killie was on the verge of returning to Hampden, but a hitting out against Hibernian robbed them of a berth in the semifinals.
