Levein and Campbell good sports

The half-time contest won’t be the only entertainment provided by the former Scotland boss and the Arbroath gaffer.

Both will tell tales from their careers during a pre-match hospitality function.

Brechin City chairman Kevin Mackie thanked the pair for being good sports.

β€œI’m really looking forward to the game,” he said.

β€œAndy (Kirk) has brought in some fantastic players already and it will be great seeing our squad in action ahead of the new season.

β€œArbroath had a fantastic season last campaign and we look forward to welcoming Dick and his players to Glebe Park.

β€œWe thought the penalty shootout would be a fun event at half-time.

β€œI’m sure Craig and Dick will provide great entertainment.

β€œBoth are hosting our prematch hospitality at the Nothern Hotel, so I can’t thank them enough for helping to create a great day of entertainment.”
