Big Day Out 2 – Aberdeen, The Sequel

February 10, 2014


Following the recent Scottish Cup quarter-final draw and Sons pairing with Aberdeen, our travel section are gearing up for the trip to the Granite City.

It’ll be our Big Day Out 2 – The Sequel!

The date for your diary is as follows : Saturday 8th March, 2014, kick-off 3pm.

Buses will leave from St James Retail Park, opposite McDonald’s at 9.30am sharp.

Prices are £10 for members and under-16s with non-members paying £13.

The team really do appreciate the backing we give them and we’d like to get as many supporters to the game as we can.

The number of buses we take will, obviously, depend on demand, so what we need YOU to do is spread the word that our travel section are looking for bookings.

As of 21st February, we are on the way to filling at least two coaches.

As usual, there are several routes to making sure you reserve a seat :

1. Leave a comment here on this post. It would be helpful if you could include some contact info.
2. Call Tommy H on 07710771341
3. Drop an e-mail to
4. Use our Facebook page to leave a comment

We will post full details on times, prices etc just as soon as we get info on when the game will take place.

Meantime, get your name down and get the news out there.

    Cheers for the reply Tommy, obviously waiting to see the final 5th round result , Sky will surely choose the ‘cash cow’ Rangers, verses Albion for tv!! Albion very capable of another cup upset… i’m hoping for a Saturday game. i’ll watch this space and get back to you.when appropiate.

    Hi Tommy, in light of the great news three buses are free, I will let the real supporters get in, i’ve seen a train to Queen street that gets me back in time, however, if you need numbers for a fourth ‘paid’ bus i’d be happy to contribute at a later stage! can’t wait for the match 🙂

  35. thughes permalink

    Sean misunderstanding here, the buses are NOT FREE. The club have made a generous donation to assist us in getting as many buses to the game in Aberdeen as we can.
    Cost for anyone interested in travelling is as follows:
    Members / U16’s £10, Non-Members £13

  36. Sean Bangs permalink
    February 23, 2014 2:28 pm

    oops… dont the fee’s collected cover the coach hire costs, obviously not, sorry about that, hope that clears it up for others who read it wrong! haha sorry guys.
    stick me down for one seat please Tommy, i’m flying up so its just for the return journey, and to Buchanan Bus Station (if still ok). can I pay you on the day?

  37. thughes permalink
    February 23, 2014 4:56 pm

    You’ve got to be joking Sean, fees collected wouldn’t come close to covering the bus costs over a season. Anyway that’s not what the fees are for.
    Unfortunately Sean I will still have to charge you the full £13 even for one way as you’re taking up a seat, that still okay?

  38. Sean Bangs permalink
