Hamilton are charging 10p entry for Saturday's match with Inverness in honour of former manager Alex Neil and departing assistant Frankie McAvoy.

Neil left to take over at Norwich earlier this month, with McAvoy set to join him at Carrow Road next week.

Both men have given a decade of service to the Accies.

Vice chairman Ronnie Macdonald said: "As a mark of the esteem we hold them in, we have designated Saturday as a tribute to these significant 10s."

The standard admission price at New Douglas Park this season is £22 for adults and £10 for concessions.

Travelling supporters will also benefit from the greatly reduced entry fee, just a few days after Inverness trial a 'pay what you can' offer for Tuesday's Premiership game with St Johnstone.

Macdonald added: "Saturday's match against Inverness marks Frankie McAvoy's last game as an 'Academical'.

"Both he and Alex Neil have given us wonderful service in their time at the club, both of them served us for 10 years, and of course Alex wore the number 10 jersey with distinction.

"We look forward to welcoming all our loyal supporters, and perhaps some new ones, to send Frankie, and Alex, off with the acclaim they deserve."
