Solihull Moors & Wrexham to join the Scottish Challenge Cup

Last season we saw two National League clubs enter the SPFL Challenge Cup for the first time, with Boreham Wood and Sutton United entering the history books.

It's an experiment that the SFA (Scottish Football Association) were evidently pleased with as they're following it up again for the upcoming 2019/20 campaign, with the two highest placed finishers not to earn promotion from the fifth tier invited once again.

This ensures that Solihull Moors (2nd) and Welsh based club Wrexham (4th) are set to enter the fray and it looks very interesting for a number of reasons.

Solihull stunned the National League last year to come within a whisker of the title, so gaining eligibility and playing in the Scottish Cup is a massive achievement for them.

But Wrexham on the other hand throws up a unique situation. The Dragons are based in Wales but they will be entering the competition as English representatives, due to them playing in their football in the National League.

So this means we have a Welsh club, representing England, in a Scottish tournament - what a bizarre situation.

This is the second season that teams from the Vanarama National League have been invited to the Scottish Challenge Cup

Wrexham fans will be hoping that they can go one step better than their Welsh counterparts Connah's Quay Nomads, who managed to go through right to the final last season at the Caledonian Stadium. They were beaten 3-1 by a very good Ross County side, who also went on to lift the Scottish Championship that season.

Both of the National League clubs will enter the cup at the third round stage alongside, with them also being joined by some other sides outside of Scotland which totals to 32 teams.

Two guest teams from each of the NIFL Premiership (Northern Ireland), League of Ireland Premier Division and Welsh Premier League will enter the competition.

One of the Welsh sides in attendance will be defending PL champions the New Saints, who enter the SPFL Challenge for a fourth season.

The draw for the first and second round draws took place on Wednesday so both Solihull Moors and Wrexham will know who they have waiting for them from the 13th August - exciting times.

Both sides will be desperate to make an impact, so will we see an English winner in Solihull Moors, or will Sean Pearson lift the trophy with the Dragons?
