Willie Johnston Scottish Cup superfan - haste ye back Willie!

Thanks to Ross at Thistle Channel TV for this video. Willie Johnston details his Scottish Cup odyssey so far. Full Screen Version here.   We're oot but the buzz lives on as the Wee County exited with heads held high yesterday afternoon in the replay - Nairn 2 Forfar 3.

Donald Wilson had a few wee blethers with Willie, he told the Gurn: "A lot of fans first met Willie at Prestonpans. He had been at Fort William in the preliminary round where Preston Athletic beat Fort William then it was on to the next round where he met up with the motely crew from Station Park. A lovely guy with football coursing through his veins. Just wish his Scottish Cup odyssey was continuing with Nairn. The players and Les Fridge will be gutted – and so are the fans. But they have done Nairn proud and I sincerely hope when they return to league duty against Turriff on Saturday all the fans who turned up to cheer them on against Forfar do so again and help them push on with their league challenge.

Meeting Willie was a fantastic bonus from this year’s Scottish Cup run. He’s seen Nairn play five times and speaking to him after the game I know how much he has appreciated the craic before and after the games. If any Forfar fan reads this and you see Willie in the crowd against Ayr take the man out for pint after the game. He deserves it. Look forward to see you back at Nairn later in the season Willie."
