MORTON: Renfrewshire Derby Fixture Confirmed

13 June, 2024 | Local, Morton

MORTON will face derby rivals St Mirren at Cappielow next month in the Communities Cup.

The match will take place on Tuesday 9 July with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Last season saw the first edition of the cup in the first Renfrewshire Derby since 2020 with the Ton running out 2-0 winners.

Ticket information has still to be announced.

Morton general manager Dale Pryde-MacDonald said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Communities Cup again this season.

“The meeting of two community-owned clubs is a fantastic occasion and showcases the real power of community and the positives that can happen when people come together for the benefit of their respective badges.

“Obviously the historic rivalry between both clubs is there for all to see but it is also important to acknowledge that both clubs put a lot of effort in to their local communities and supporting the people in their respective areas, hence why it has become known as the Communities Cup.

“Both clubs provide platforms for local people to learn, engage, develop and grow and we hope that both sets of supporters will acknowledge the great breadth of worth that Morton in the Community and the St Mirren Charitable Foundation do to serve their local communities all year round.”
