Final scoreBuckie thistle 1-1 nairn county
— Buckie Thistle FC (@BuckieThistleFC) September 8, 2012
County without Junior Mendes today (away on international duty) and Connor Gethins out with a hamstring injury. Buckie were down to 10 men with Gary Clark red carded. Les said in the Courier that it couldn't be helped and it would give someone else the chance to shine - today it was Mike Morrison who shone for the County. More details on the above Buckie twitter account. A report will no doubt be available later tonight on Highlandleague.net.
Victoria Park is never an easy place for the Wee County to go and get anything so Les will probably be content to come home with a draw.
Next week at Station Park there is the prospect of a cracking encounter with Brora Rangers and their massive squad of former Wee County Players. There should be some good craic coming from the terraces at 3 pm on Sat the 15th. Today the brand new Brora Rangers had a bad time of it at home to the Broch and will head south looking for redemption next week. Be prepared to see some familiar faces and a possible classic.

Meanwhile there is the mouth-watering meeting coming up with the Can-Cans in the North Cup on Tuesday night (again at Station Park). The Forres loons have their minds on their forthcoming big Scottish Cup tie so perhaps they might get a reality check when they head along the A96 for the Tuesday tussle?
3 weeks to go until the mighty #forresmechanics take on #rangers at Mosset Park #scottishcup Mon the Cans!.
