Head coach Sean Lineen will unveil a new-look side when Glasgow Warriors kick-off the new season with a tasty friendly against Newcastle Falcons at Firhill.
Four of the club's new signings, loosehead prop Gordon Reid, flyhalf Scott Wight, centre Troy Nathan and wing Tommy Seymour, have been chosen in the starting XV, while a fifth, loose forward Rory Pitman, is in line to make an impact from the bench.
The Firhill crowd will also have the chance to take a look at Nick Campbell, the lock who plays his club rugby for Glasgow Hawks and is part of the Scottish Rugby Elite Development programme.
"There's massive enthusiasm in the camp about getting back out there and giving the Glasgow crowd something to get excited about right from the start of the season," Lineen siad.
"In terms of passion and commitment, the support we receive at Firhill is right up there with the best in the PRO12, and our task as a team and a club is to give even more of the Glasgow public a reason to get involved and feel that the Warriors represent them.
"The team and coaches are right behind the initiative to let kids in for free on Friday, and we'll be going all out to give everyone who comes along a positive taste of what they can expect when the competitive games come around."
Lineen is particularly looking forward to seeing his new recruits in Warriors match action. He said: "All the guys we've brought in have shown up very well in pre-season in terms of the attitude and application they've had.
"It's good to be able to give them a run-out in match conditions now, just to let them get familiar with our patterns and how we play the game, and in that respect it's good to also have guys who are steeped in Glasgow rugby in there too: players like Rob Dewey [who will captain the side], Colin Shaw, Ed Kalman and James Eddie.
"Ayr were good enough to accommodate us for what was a great hit out on Tuesday, so we're not going into the Falcons match completely cold, and while there are bound to be bits of our game that are a bit rusty, it's a chance for us to set out our stall for the season ahead and show what we're all about."
Debutant Wight confirmed: "I know I speak for the other boys that will be making their first Glasgow appearance when I say that it's a night we're all massively looking forward to.
"We've all worked hard to put ourselves in a position where we get to pull on the shirt, and it's going to be a tremendously proud moment when it actually happens."
