We will kick off our historic first season when we face Edinburgh City in the first match of League Two on home turf.

The fixtures released by the SPFL this morning confirmed 'The Citizens' will be the first visitors to Balmoral Stadium on August 3.

Cove co-manager Graeme Mathieson said: “We are pleased to be starting out at Balmoral, where we have enjoyed an excellent record since moving back there a year ago.

”I’m sure there will be a bumper turn out for what will be a very special occasion for everyone at the club and we are determined to do well.

”We were unbeaten at Balmoral in the Highland League and the challenge for the players now is to see if they can do as well at the higher level.”

The players will start their build up to the new campaign when they return for pre-season training at Balmoral tomorrow.

”I’m confident they will all come back in pretty good shape,” said Graeme.

”They know how eager we are to be as competitive as we possibly can in League Two and accept that will take a lot of hard work.”

Ahead of the start of our Betfred League Cup campaign, there will be three opportunities for the supporters to see the players in action.

We face Inverurie Locos on Wednesday July 3rd (7.45pm) and Montrose on Saturday July 6th (3pm), both at Balmoral Stadium.
