Wick v County match postponed as a mark of respect to Wayne and Lauren after the loss of their son Alfie

Most of our readership will know that Wayne MacKintosh "Toshy" is a popular and talented player with the town's Highland League side. Nairn County Chairman Peter Mackintosh has issued a  statement on behalf of the club:
 “The players, committee and fans were devastated to learn of the death of Wayne Mackintosh and his partner Lauren’s young son Alfie.
 “The sympathy of the club goes out to both families at this tragic time.
 “Our match with Wick tomorrow has been cancelled as a mark of respect and we thank the Highland League and Wick FC for their cooperation in this matter.
 “Football is the furthest thing from our minds at this time and the club will offer all the support we can at this very sad time to Wayne and Lauren."

Condolences and messages of sympathy are being posted by fans of the close-knit community club on their “We Believe” facebook page today.
