Businesses in a North-east port are being urged to get behind their club’s upcoming Scottish Cup clash to give the town a boost.
The fourth round tie between Fraserburgh FC and Rangers will take place at Bellslea Park on January 21.
About 350 away fans will travel to the port to cheer on their side.
And now businesses in the town are being urged to do their bit to reap the rewards when Graeme Murty and his players arrive.Councillor Brian Topping, who is also joint chairman of the Fraserburgh FC Supporters Club, said: “When the draw was made everybody in the town was ecstatic.
“This is Fraserburgh’s Scottish Cup final.
“Whether you’re a pub or a restaurant or a shop, having up to 350 Rangers fans coming up is a real boost, and they will receive a very warm welcome.
“Anyone can come to Fraserburgh and enjoy the game and enjoy the town and hopefully they take a wee chance to spend some money when they’re here.
“I hope the local pubs, restaurants and shops benefit from this and I think there is going to be a fair bit of a spin-off for lots of businesses.”
There will be no tickets on public sale for the cup tie, with the briefs only being handed out to season ticket holders.
