County take the North cup in a classic thriller - Nairn 2 Wick 1

"You wouldn't have felt hard done by if Wick han taken the cup," said one of the Wee County faithful as the massive crowd (reminiscent of Highland league games of the sixties and seventies) made for the exit. True words as both sides put on a great display of football that did the Highland League proud but it was to be Nairn's day. The North Cup once again heads for Nairn and Les's loons are fired up and ready to take on Forfar in the Scottish Cup.
It was a classic, well down the County boys and Robbie Duncanson and John Cameron with the goals,  a great day out for the County faithful, more pictures later.

“Great result. All credit to Wick, they are a fine side and Nairn had to fight every inch of the way. Only disappointment was no triumphant return to Nairn with the cup by the team. Some of the players did however visit some of the punters in Uncle Bob’s and the Legion. Thanks to them.”

The photo remind me of the bad old days when you would see kids hanging around on the pavements by the bars that their parents were busy getting pished in.

And on a different note well done to Nairn County FC!

@oldie: Wee County expeditions are very family friendly, soft drinks and sandwiches also laid on by Nip Inn hospitality for the visiting black and yellow hordes.

It was good to see so many kids supporting Nairn yesterday and they were all very well behaved. They are the future and should be encouraged. Hope all those that are under 14 get into the games free?
