But it was Copland - who retired at 42 - who brought the house down on Guild's big day with a surprise substitute's appearance against the Dons.
Guild, who netted a 60th minute penalty, said: "I think Eddie got one of the biggest cheers of the day when he came on!
"I didn't mind at all - it was great to have past players like him on the bench. Eddie is a Huntly legend.
"It was nice to score in my testimonial. I can only thank Derek and the lads for helping make this such a special day for me."
