Diamonds' Greatest XI honoured
19th August 2016
You may recall last seasons’ weekly poll, where the fans voted to name their all time Greatest Airdrie XI.
Tomorrow sees the unveiling of a banner commemorating these legends, and the Club and Supporters' Trust are delighted that some of them will be in attendance at the match to unveil the banner in the North Stand.
Alan Lawrence, Billy Wilson, Jim Black, John Martin, and honorary club president Ian McMillan are all coming along as guests of the Club and Trust to help unveil the banner, which will sit alongside that of the late great Sammy Conn. The unveiling will take place at 2:50pm, and we would ask as many fans as possible to come along early to show your appreciation.
In addition to the above, Jim, Billy, Nipper and John will be in the Presidents Bar from 1:30pm-2:00pm, and at the Supporters' Trust stall on the concourse at half time, to chat, get photos taken, and to sign copies of a limited edition A4 version of the Greatest XI banner which will be available to buy for £5.
Parents of the Airdrie Aces are advised that pre-match Training returns from 1:30pm-2:30pm at the five-a-side pitches behind the goals, with Arts and Crafts available in the Presidents Bar Party Room. Adults season tickets will be available to buy from the Club Shop from 1:30 (discounted to reflect the home match already played), and we would also ask that anyone looking to swap KitAid vouchers for Kids season tickets visit the Trust personnel in the Presidents Bar pre-match.
Hope to see you all there!
