Peterhead fans will have to travel to Glasgow for the Petrofac Training Cup final against The Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday, April 10 2016.

Blue Toon manager Jim McInally said: “I think it will be a good day out for the people of Peterhead.

“And it will be a dream game for the players to get to play at a big stadium for a cup final.”

Although he noted that the size of the pitch will benefit Championship-side The Rangers, who play their home games at Ibrox.

He added: “The match is something we can look forward to, but it is a few months away and we will concentrate on picking up points until then.”

The Blue Toon has been allocated 3000 tickets, and McInally said they would be ‘delighted’ if that many people from Peterhead made the trip to the national stadium. Allocation may be increased if there demand for additional tickets.

The match will be broadcast on BBC Alba for its 3pm kick-off.

Peterhead goalkeeper Graeme Smith said: “As a team we are delighted to be in the final. It’s great for a club our size, and a fantastic occasion for supporters, players, directors and all involved with Peterhead FC.

“We’ll of course be looking to win the game and for all of us to have a great day out at Hampden Park.”
