Caley Thistle supporters have been given a second opportunity to watch their club at a bargain rate after Hamilton Accies decided to charge 10p admission for Saturday’s game against the Highlanders at New Douglas Park.
Caley Jags supporters are already being allowed to pay what they can at tonight’s match against St Johnstone at Caledonian Stadium.
Ronnie Macdonald, Accies vice-chairman, explained the reasons behind the initiative. He said: “Saturday’s match against Inverness marks Frankie McAvoy’s last game as an Academical.
“Both he and (former player-manager) Alex Neil have given us wonderful service in their time at the club. Both of them served us for 10 years and of course Alex wore the number 10 jersey with distinction
“As a mark of the esteem we hold them in we have designated Saturday’s game as a tribute to these significant 10s and will make the admission charge for all spectators, home or away, just 10p.
“We look forward to welcoming all our loyal supporters, and perhaps some new ones, to send off Frankie, (and Alex), with the acclaim they deserve.”
