In what was a very competitive game Dunfermline lost 2-0 to Romanian opponents Poli AEK Timisoara.
Dunfermline fielded a relatively young line up and included Sean Murdoch in goals.
Jim Leishman commenting post match said "I was very encouraged by the performance of the lads on the pitch today, I was especially impressed by Sean Murdoch. It was a very difficult game for us, the Romanians were very fast and strong and their line up included the top goal scorer in the Romanian League last season. Also the temperature that the guys were playing in today (reaching 93 degrees) definitely had an impact. I`m looking forward to our next game against Chievo, but I have to say I am really glad that we decided to come out here the complex and facilities are great."Dunfermline Squad: Sean Murdoch, Noel Hunt (Gary Mason 60), Andy Tod, Andrius Skerla, Scott Wilson, Ian Campbell, Greg Ross (Lee Makel 60, Simon Donnelly65), Craig Wilson, Scott Morrison, Billy Mehmet, Maciej Nuckowski (Mark Burchill 56)
