DUNTOCHER Hibs Amateur Football Club is returning to its "spiritual home" this weekend.

Since the team reformed in 2013, the squad has been playing at the Mountblow pitches, which are set for a new 3G pitch and overhaul.

But now space is available at Glenhead Park in Duntocher, known as The Hibby, and the players can't wait to get on the field tomorrow against Ferguslie Star AFC in the first round of the Coronation Cup.

The Hibby is already home to Drumchapel Amateurs but with their second team split off and under 21s no longer with enough players to form a squad, they invited Duntocher to return home.

The team's founder and manager Brendan Mullen said it was an immediate "absolutely" from them.

He told the Post: "We know and understand there are restrictions with weather conditionjs and the fixtures list. But the team is absolutely delighted - they can't wait to play there.

"We had a friendly against Drumchapel last Wednesday as part of the pre-season. This is recognised as Duntocher's premiere park - everybody is desperate to play there."

Kick-off with head coach Kev Seagrave is at 2pm at The Hibby and Brendan said they hope to continue improving as they have over the past four seasons.

He added: "We're getting to be quite well known. And The Hibby is a great place to take other teams to.

"We are grateful to Drumchapel Amateurs for their kind invitation home."
