***THE BELOW IS A STATEMENT FROM THE MARTIN MACDONALD TESTIMONIAL COMMITTEE***
ABERDEEN FC will provide the opposition for Martin MacDonald's Testimonial Match on Tuesday July 21st (kick off 8.00 pm).
A keenly-contested encounter is likely to be in store between two clubs coming up to the start of their respective league campaigns and it is sure to attract interest from across the Highlands and Grampian regions.
Martin said: "I am delighted that Aberdeen have agreed to come north to Nairn to take part in this match and I would like to thank them for agreeing to provide the opposition for the testimonial. They are just coming to the end of a fantastic season finishing second in the Premiership table off the back of lifting the Scottish League Cup last year so it is a real coup to get them to play in this fixture.
"It is going to be a really great occasion and I am thoroughly looking forward to it. I cannot thank the Testimonial Committee and Nairn County enough for bringing this together and it is going to be a real highlight of the testimonial year."
Martin's Testimonial Year Programme of Events started at the weekend with a 19-mile run from County's Station Park ground to Inverness which has so far raised almost £4000 for Friends of Autism Highland while a Golf Day at Nairn Dunbar on Saturday July 13th is sold out. There will also be a Dinner / Dance and a Race Night later in the year.
Ticketing prices and information for the fixture against Aberdeen will be available soon.
