Bookings are also now being taken for hospitality, with packages available for all games. Anybody interested can contact the club on 01241 872157 or Malcolm Fairweather on 07770663928.

The club said they would like to say a big thank you to Maggie Reid, who ran the hospitality for the past two seasons but has now moved on.

A main club sponsor has been secured with an announcement to be made soon on who it is.

And finally, the club will have their annual open day on Saturday, July 21, before the Lichties take on Keith in a pre-season friendly at Gayfield.

Children will be able to go along and train with the club’s youth team coach before having a chance to have a kick about with the first team players.
