Bavidge testimonial events

PLANS are well in hand for a number of events to celebrate the testimonial year of Peterhead FC’s veteran striker Martin Bavidge.

The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Forfar Athletic man signed on at Balmoor in the summer of 2003, and has since netted more than 100 goals for the club.

Martin’s testimonial committee can now confirm that a testimonial dinner will be held at the Hilton Treetops Hotel in Aberdeen on Saturday, October 13.

Guest speakers at what is sure to be a popular event will be former Liverpool, Real Sociedad and Republic of Ireland striker John Aldridge and Robbie Glen, whose varied career saw him start as a teacher before becoming Deputy Governor at Glasgow’s Barlinnie Prison, and subsequently Governor of Cornton Vale.

The evening will kick-off at 7pm, with tables of ten only £600 and a table for 12 just £700.

For more details or to book your table, please contact either Ali Green ( or tel 07770 414997), or Mitch Bavidge ( or tel 07872 138019).

Meanwhile, Peterhead will take on Aberdeen Football Club at Balmoor Stadium on Tuesday, September 18, for Martin’s testimonial game.

Tickets are priced £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s, and it is hoped that a large crowd will come out and support on the Blue Toon’s favourite players.
