Sunday 31st July will see SPL side visitSPFL side and Scottish Cup holders Hibs will be the visitors to the Greenhous Meadow for Micky Mellon’s sides’ final game of pre-season.
It will give Town a good test as they prepare for the Sky Bet League 1 kick-off season and it will coincide with the club’s annual Open Day.
Ticket prices have been kept low to help encourage as many young supporters to come along to the game and also to take part in the Open Day.
There are connections between the clubs with Ryan McGivern and Gary Deegan having played for Hibs, who currently have one Grant Holt in their ranks.
Town CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased to have finally confirmed the opposition for the final weekend of pre-season.
“We are delighted that Hibs have agreed to the game and it will be good to have the Scottish Cup holders at the Greenhous Meadow”, said Brian.
“We did have some issues getting a game on the Sunday to coincide with the open day but we have got one.
“I think it will be the first time that Hibs have visited the Greenhous Meadow and we look forward to welcoming them on Sunday 31st July.
“It will be a 12:30pm kick-off and for the open day there will be activity before the game and plenty more afterwards.
“Jamie and his team in the community have a full list of events over the day and we will be announcing those shortly.”
It’s taken Town a while to confirm the final game but it is one that Micky Mellon’s side is looking forward to. The test that Hibs will pose ahead of the start of the season should be a good one for Town.
“Micky's delighted that we have got Hibs as he wanted a good test especially in the final pre season match and he knows that they are a good footballing side”, added Brian.
“It will be a good test for the players in the lead up to the important game at home to MK Dons on the first day of the season and hopefully we can encourage as many local people along for the match and Open Day.
“Hibs are a good strong team and a big club in Scotland so it will be a hard one for the team.”
