Fraserburgh appeal for patience over glamour Scottish Cup clash with Rangers



Fraserburgh have asked their fans to stop overwhelming the club with enquiries regarding their glamour Scottish Cup clash with Rangers.

The Highland League outfit plan to host the money-spinning fourth round tie at their 3,000 capacity Bellslea Park.

Broch chairman Finlay Noble is keen to look at ways of increasing capacity for the clash, which is due to take place on the weekend of January 20/21, and the club has pleaded with supporters to remain patient with respect to ticket details.

A statement read: “We are in the process of speaking with the Police and other authorities with regard to the Scottish Cup tie against Rangers.

“Your interest in the game is very welcome but until we have concluded our discussions with all the parties involved we would be extremely grateful if you could refrain from asking about details and tickets for the game.

“A full statement will appear on the website and other media outlets once full details of the Rangers match are known.

“Thank you for you continued support.”

Following Monday’s draw, chairman Noble, who watched his side beat Spartans in the last round, said: “We are determined to keep the game at Belllsea Park as our supporters who follow us deserve to see the game played at our home ground.

“We will be looking into ways on how we can increase the capacity so will be liaising with the Police and the Council in the next few days.”
