Rudi wins County Keeper's penalty stopping gloves

Nairn County goalkeeper Callum Donaldson’s gloves which stopped a penalty and helped Nairn to a historic Scottish Cup victory over Clyde have fetched £100 in an on-line auction. The big popular keeper is a firm favourite with the fans and has been backing them in their campaign to raise funds for ground improvements which is already generating thousands of pounds.
The winning bid for the gloves, which were auctioned on the Nairn County Fans “ We Believe” Facebook site was tabled by Rudi Morganti, the grandson of Angelo Morganti, a former club Chairman and President of the Highland League who was with Nairn County when the stand was built in 1937,
Rudi was locked in a titanic bidding war with Ian Finlayson, son of former County Secretary Sandy Finlayson. When bidding closed it was Rudi’s £100 donation which won the day.
Rudi is pictured receiving the gloves from Callum in the Royal British Legion Nairn after the recent encounter between the Wee County and Strathspey Thistle.
