VALE OF Leithen are warning fans hoping to attend the game against high-flying Rangers B on Tuesday 28 December to get their tickets from the club.

Club vice-chairman Michael Hogarth says he’s aware of fraudsters claiming to be third-party sellers with tickets on offer.

To guard against this, he’s handling all ticket sales himself and he can be contacted by sending a message via the club’s Facebook page.

He said: After today’s announcement by the First Minister, I can confirm that the following game will take place on the original date/time. All guidelines and protocols stated in today’s government update will be adhered too and followed, including a ground capacity of 500.

“Regular updates and changes will be posted as they occur in the forthcoming week in relation to the match.

“As you can now imagine today, the club has had a significant demand for tickets to this match and may I now bring to your attention that NO tickets will/are available through any 3rd party.

“Tickets can now be purchased in advance, however only through myself and are available at a maximum of 4 per transaction.

“Already today the club has witnessed a “fake seller” claiming to have tickets available and for sale-this is NOT true!

“Should anyone wish to purchase a ticket(s) in advance then please pm/text/call myself and I can arrange for this transaction to happen prior to the match kick off.

“Thanks again for your continued support.”

Rangers have a large support in the Scottish Borders and David McCallum’s side are in second place, with 48 points from 22 games. They have been playing some superb football, beating Edinburgh University 8-2 at the weekend and fans have been raving about the quality of the youngsters.

They won the reverse fixture at Dumbarton’s C&G Systems Stadium at the end of August 9-0 but since then Grant Sandison has taken over at Vale and strengthened the squad.
