The Wee County conquers

It was hard to believe that Inverurie were 26 points above Nairn before this game started but a shock always looked on the cards, even though Nairn gave away a silly goal early on. It looks like the players that Les Fridge has brought into the team are gelling now and although it is a bit late in the season to be doing anything serious we could be odds on to be a new ‘glamour’ side in Highland League terms next season.
Well over a hundred Inverurie fans made the trip and although they were a bit peeved with their own team, they were the usual good crac and it was good to see them – they always make us welcome through there. The Inverurie fans also made their customary pre-match visit to the Legion, a place they have become quite fond of since they joined the league and started coming to Nairn, in fact they have been known to stop off there too on the way back from trips further a field. Yeah reality football up at Station Park has got a lot going for it and while you can grudge the likes of the Premiership stars the mad wages they get, the guys that work hard for ninety minutes at Station Park deserved every penny of the beer money they will earn for their efforts.
