Chairman George Manson hailed Sunday’s Irn-Bru Cup tie against Hibs as “the biggest game in Turriff United’s history”.
The Highland League side face off against the Edinburgh giants in the third round of the cup.
Turra beat St Johnstone Under-20s 2-1 at McDiarmid Park in the opening round before coming past League 2 Montrose to set up a Haughs showdown with Championship Hibs.
Manson, who’s been involved with United for 15 years, is excited about the glamour game.
He said: “We’re looking forward to it. It’ll be a challenge and it’s the biggest game in our history.”
The chairman also emphasised the financial impact of the tournament for his club.
Manson said: “Financially it will give us a good cash injection, at the right time.
“At the beginning of the season you’re always looking for some money.”
Manson also believes it’s a fantastic achievement to reach the third round of the cup.
He added: “It’s our first time in the competition and the prize money is good so we’re pleased to be in it and pleased to progress so far.
“We beat a senior league team in Montrose.
“We also played St Johnstone Colts who are full-time footballers, so they were great victories.
“It’s definitely been an exciting competition to be involved in and let’s hope it continues.”
Turra goalkeeper Kevin Main believes facing Neil Lennon’s team is the highest profile match of his career.
He said: “It’s the biggest game against top class opposition.
” I’ve played against Aberdeen a few times but that’s been in friendlies and testimonials.
“It’s big games like this you play the cup competitions for.”
The former Buckie Thistle stopper feels his team can cause the Scottish Cup holders problems.
“It’s a full-time team coming up here and they’re expected to win.
“They’ll probably have a lot of possession of the ball and we’ll just have to try to sit in.
“If we can keep it tight and nick a goal then they’ll have to attack us a bit more and hopefully we can pick them off and get the result. You just never know,” said Main.
The game is being shown live on BBC Alba and the 34-year-old is pleased with the opportunity the exposure provides to show how good Turriff and the Highland League are.
He said: “It’s a high profile game which will promote the league even further.
“We’re the only Highland League side left in the competition.
“So hopefully we put in a good performance and do the league proud.”
A crowd of more than 1,000 are expected at the Haughs with Hibs having so far sold around half of their 1,000 ticket allocation.
The home side are expecting to sell more than 500 tickets themselves.
