Thanks to @flybe for an enjoyable journey to Edinburgh. Now the boys are en route to the hotel before this evening's game.
Just over three hours until preseason kicks off against East Fife at Bayview. After a bit of drizzle earlier, it's a bright day again now
The boys get a prematch teamtalk at East Fife...
All set up and ready to go in East Fife. The first teamsheet of pre-season will be passed around in about 15/20 minutes' time.
Our starting XI at East Fife tonight will be: Hamon; Davies, Tillson, McAllister, Woodman; McCready, Jay, Byrne; Nicholls, Fisher, Reid.
The other 13 players which have travelled will be available from the bench - you'd imagine that few will play 90 minutes in our first PSF
Teamsheets haven't come around just yet but we're led to believe there'll be a fair few trialists in the East Fife XI
Terrific to see so many red and white shirts in the crowd tonight. Hope to hear a few 'ciderrrr' renditions...
East Fife's team for tonight: Goodfellow, Trialist, Walker, Trialist, Trialist, Wilkie, Slattery, Austin, Trialist, Trialist, Page.
So five unnamed trialists in the Fifers' starting line-up and a further four on the bench. City trialist Alex Fisher starts in red and white
Kicking off in about 5 minutes in Fife. A very pleasant, mild evening - if a tad windy. East Fife have been wonderfully welcoming hosts.
Here come the teams! Our own Scotsman Jamie McAllister dons the armband tonight and captains the Grecians
We're underway and City are on the attack. City are playing with a front three - Reid adnd Nicholls are flanking Fisher
City have a bit of defending to do as Woodman concedes a free-kick on the left
Not a bad delivery from the right but McCready and then Nicholls head clear. Jay tries to spring a counter but his pass is wayward
Good work at the back by Matt Jay, tracking his runner and then winning a throw as a cross is blocked and deflects out off the East Fife man
So close Jamie Reid! He wins the ball upfield and fires with his left from a tight angle; Goodfellow palms around the post...
... and then the corner isn't dealt with - Nicholls hammers goalwards but it's teammate Tillson that inadvertently blocks the shot
Kyle Wilkie nearly gets an opening but City bodies get themselves in the way
Another stinger of a drive from Reid - Goodfellow has to parry over. A couple of fierce shots from the City striker already
Pat Slattery gets a shot away after Tillson had made a critical block - it is deflected though and trickles through to Hamon
Trialist no.9 for East Fife hits an effort from 25 yards but it's into the ground and bounces safely into Hamon's arms
And at the other end, Davies digs out a good cross towards Reid but it's nodded away well
