Next up for Broughty Athletic in their pre-season campaign is the visit of Highland League side Fraserburgh FC this Saturday at Whitton Park.
Following on from Tuesday night’s 3-0 win over local amateur side Dundee Argyle, Fed manager Keith Gibson knows this Saturday’s opponents will be a sterner test for his side as they play their second pre-season friendly game. Tuesday night was good to see the squad getting some game time under their belts and also for some trialists to shine, and Keith will use this Saturday’s game to run the rule again to see if he will make one or two new more signings for the club. The club so far has signed left back Ryan Blair, pictured below, midfielder Ross McCord and striker James Collier for the new season ahead.
Visitors Fraserburgh, ply their trade in the Highland League alongside the likes of Cove Rangers, Brora Rangers, Buckie Thistle, Huntly and Formartine United. They last won the Highland League title away back in the 2001/02 season, with their previous two league titles away as far back as the 1930’s. Last season they did, however, win the Aberdeenshire Cup and the Aberdeenshire Shield, main picture above.
All fans are reminded that the kick-off for this game on Saturday at Whitton Park is now a 1-30pm kick-off. Admission is free of charge for the game.
