Scratchplate Change on a Strat

Just got a new set of pickups and scratchplate, and while putting it all together I realised the holes on the new scratchplate do not line up with the ones on the guitar...

the guitar's a 2007 american std strat. I got three of the screws in but the remaining eight holes are between 25% and 100% obscured.
I am not sure I want to redrill the holes just yet, the scratchplate is not an original fender version, could that be a problem?

any suggestions welcomed.

Sell or return the pickguard and get the correct one. You'll devaluate the guitar by drilling holes on it.

British? Regardless, they never do. There are differences and a good house will know the hole alignment for your Amer. Std. strat. If it's an EMG package...I'm not sure how many options they're willing to provide.
