The Ramsdens Cup First Round draw was made earlier today, and Formartine United have been handed a home tie against Third Division side East Stirlingshire their competition debut.
Steve Paterson's men will host Shire at North Lodge Park on 27th July.
John Coughlin's men finished bottom of Division Three last season, and narrowly overcame Fraserburgh 2-1 in the Scottish Cup last September.
Meanwhile, Inverurie Locos midfielder Clark Bain has been placed on the transfer list at his own request.
Bain joined Locos from Cove Rangers in the summer of 2010 after a five year stint at Allan Park where he twice won the Highland League title under the management of John Sheran.
Locos co-manager Scott Buchan insisted the player made the request to be made available.
"It has simply come at Clark's request. He came to us at the end of last season to tell us he may be on his travels abroad due through work. I'm not too sure what's happening on that front as I haven't spoken to Clark in a while, but he has contacted Kenny Coull to ask to be put on the transfer list."
