Brechin City play host to Aberdeen next week in a match which must surely be amongst the earliest pre-season friendlies the club has played.
The Dons only lost out to a Scottish Premiership runners-up spot courtesy of an injury time goal by Motherwell in the final game of last season.
The knock-on effect of this is an earlier than usual start to the new season for the Pittodrie outfit, as they enter the Europa Cup qualifying rounds meaning their first game takes place on July 3.
This in turn has brought the Glebe Park clash forward too, taking place on Wednesday, June 25, with a 7.45 p.m. kick-off.
There’s good news for the Glebe Park faithful, too, as once again season ticket holders are prioritised for this match. A spokesman for the club said: “City’s season ticket sales are often triggered by the first home friendly – but with this match scheduled much earlier than usual the management committee has agreed that 2013/14 season tickets will be valid for this match.
“Fans who may have already disposed of their previous ticket needn’t worry, as we retain lists of season ticket buyers, so these individuals should turn up at the season ticket gate as normal.”
Gate entry prices for the match are as follows:-
Parent and child, £10 (plus £2 for additional child); adults, £8; concessions, £4.
