Fans Asked to Don Boots for Cancer Charity

A Dons supporter is on the lookout for fellow Reds to take part in charity match later this year.

Fan John Bleasdale has organised an over 35s charity match between fans of Aberdeen and Celtic to be played at Falkirk Stadium on Sunday 9 September.

The match will also feature a select band of former players for both sides, with Scott Thomson, Darren Young and John Stewart so far confirmed for the Dons team.

John explains: “The aim of the match is to raise money for the Beatson Cancer Charity, who are close to my heart after being diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer back in September 2014.

“I have since beaten the disease and I am looking to give something back to them.”

The match will take place between 1pm and 3pm, with kick off between 1pm and 1.15pm.

Entry fee is £10 per head with the money covering pitch hire and a donation to the Beatson Cancer Charity.

If you want to go along to watch tickets cost £5 for adults and £1 for children.

If you would like to take part contact John via email at or by phone on 07967 432 857.

You can also donate to Beatson Cancer Charity directly, here.
