Scottish Challenge Cup Rebranded As 'The Tunnocks Caramel Wafer' Cup
The Scottish Challenge Cup has rebranded as The Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup and people think it takes the absolute biscuit.
Formerly known as Irn-Bru Cup, the first round draw was concluded on Wednesday afternoon as the likes of Edinburgh City, Stenhousemuir and Peterhead featured among a plethora of European giants.

Conducted by former Scottish international Billy Dodds, SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster and a bloke wearing a lab coat, it was a mouthful at times.
All we needed was Rod Stewart to turn up with a Caramel Wafer and Scottish football would have officially peaked.

As expected, the fixtures weren't exactly the biggest talking point of the draw.
"If only the balls were decorated like tea cakes" might have been the best suggestion of the day.
Is the tournament governed by Uwafer?
