Mascots Scotty Cup and Monty Mole will also be on hand to keep the younger supporters amused.
The 3rd Round draw will be streamed live on the Scottish Cup Facebook page and its here you will find ‘Keep it Off the Deck’ videos with both teams facing a skills challenge at training ahead of the big match.
Montrose FC Chairman John Crawford said, “We are delighted to have been chosen as the Feature Match for this round. It will be the first time a cup draw has been streamed live from Links Park and we hope overall the added focus will bring a healthy crowd along on Saturday.
