Dyce Rugby Club will kick-off their 35th season with a celebratory match tomorrow.
The current team will meet a line-up made up from past teams to contest the Mark Cheyne Memorial Trophy.
It’s hoped the old boys game will give Dyce’s 2018/19 squad a decent challenge ahead of their Caley North Division Four fixtures getting under way.
Graeme Lowe, Dyce vice-captain, said: “I’m really looking forward to it.
“It will be a great occasion and a tough test for the current team. We have been building momentum in 2018 and I’m positive this will be on display during the match.”
Dyce’s captain from 2011-13 Paul Robertson said: “The memorial old boys game will always have a special place in my heart because it was the first game I ever played in for Dyce, before eventually going on to captain the club.
“I was proud to be named man of the match in that first game.
“It’s an excellent opportunity for those who hold Dyce dear to get together and celebrate the club, as well as put the current team to the test before the season starts.
“When the current team take to the field wearing a Dyce shirt, they carry a weight of responsibility to represent not only themselves, but those who wore it before them.
“On Saturday, the old boys intend to make sure the current team earn the right to play in our name.”
The match will be held at Dyce’s Central Park pitch tomorrow, with kick-off at 3pm.
