17/07/1999 | KO:

First game of the tour is against a regional select from Peine with the game being played in the village of Edemmissen. The locals turn out in force to give the Dons a rousing welcome, complete with Piper! The select side made up of local amateur players from seven or eight different clubs isn't of a very high standard and Aberdeen run out easy 7-0 winners with Ricky Gillies grabbing a hat-trick while Darren Mackie with two, Ilian Kiriakov and Nigel Pepper are also on the mark.

The five strong media party travelling with the Dons almost miss the kick off after the lead driver heads south instead of west despite having been at the ground earlier in the day. However, some fine navigational skills ensure we get there in time after a very pleasant drive through many of the surrounding villages. The other four may disagree but I'm sticking to my version of events!
