Saturday February the 9th - the big match - 500 Wick supporters coming to Nairn?

The twitter feed is in from Station Park - frozen pitch - game off. Another fixture to add to the increasing pile up. Hopefully the weather will be better for February 9th when the massive game between Nairn and Wick will take place. 
Wick currently top the league and have a massive support. Predictions that they would bring nearly a thousand fans to the North Cup final against Nairn at Grant Street Park last year proved correct. Talk in North journalistic circles is of about 500 fans making the trip down the road on Saturday the 9th Here's a comment from Facebook: 

"Wick Academy are expecting to take 500 fans to Station Park for the league game with Nairn. A lot of their fans are coming down for the Celtic game the same day at Inverness and taking in both games. Can we match it and pull in the first four figure crowd at Nairn for a league game in many many years?"

If it looks like that prediction will materialise too, then perhaps local supporters will turn up in equal numbers for the occasion and the town will have a chance to put on the welcoming hat for the Wickers. If more definite information about numbers coming to Nairn on the 9th emerges the Gurn will update.
