Since our last Premiership pre-season friendlies round-up, there has been plenty of friendly action. Most teams in the Premiership have now taken part in some sort of pre-season game.
Here’s a quick rundown of the main highlights and talking points from the recent set of friendlies.
Aberdeen cruised to victory at Balmoor with a 2-0 win over Peterhead. Sam Cosgrove and Shay Logan scored for the Dons.
Hearts bounced back from their shock Arbroath defeat to win 7-0 in Ireland. The Jambos put Shelbourne to the sword, with Craig Wighton scoring his first Jambos goal.
The Litchies have recently taken another Edinburgh scalp though, this time it was Hibs who suffered defeat to Dick Campbell’s men.
Scott Allan scored his first since his Hibs return and trialist Ryan Moon scored for Paul Heckingbottom’s men. Errors from Hibs keeper Paddy Martin certainly didn’t help his or his side’s cause.
Kilmarnock have played two friendlies since our last round-up. In their first match they drew 0-0 with Romanian side Gaz Metan Medias, before being beaten 3-0 by fellow Romanian side Dinamo Bucharest.
Livi suffered defeat in their final game of their Budapest training camp, losing 1-0 to Hungarian side Paksi SE. Meanwhile, Motherwell put seven past Lowland League outfit Gretna 2008 in a 7-0 hammering at Raydale Park, with a Well trialist scoring a sensational overhead kick.
Ross County have yet to play a friendly, although they face Dutch side Groningen soon. St Johnstone are the latest SPFL side to travel to Northern Ireland for pre-season, drawing their opening fixture in Northern Ireland 1-1 with Glentoran.
Friendlies will soon turn to competitive matches, as the competitive season looms large in the no so distant future.
