The Staggies, whose first team won the competition in 2019 when they were playing in the Championship, have said they are unable to facilitate the requirements of participating in the competition.

They gave two reasons for pulling out, which included age restrictions on Premier League colts teams competing in the tournament and the recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak earlier this month.

The club said: "We feel it is only fair to withdraw our place in the competition for this season."

Livingston have also pulled out of this season's competition due to similar reasons.
