Celle XI 0 - 3 Aberdeen
Kick Off:          Jess, Winters, Winters.  
Attendance: 2,000
This evening's game against a Celle select attracts a crowd of around two thousand to the very scenic, tree lined ground at Wietze. But the 3-0 win courtesy of Robbie Winters' double and Eoin Jess' spectacular volley is overshadowed by the unfortunate leg break suffered by Andreas Berg following Nigel Pepper's tackle. Nigel is very upset by the incident but no one is pointing the finger of blame at him.

On a more amusing note, I'm chatting with Michael Hart before the game when a crowd of kids approach for autographs. Michael does his bit, then I'm told 'you as well trainer'. Needless to say there's great hilarity from young Mr. Hart who is threatened with all sorts if the rest of the squad is told!
