Party put on hold in Aberdeenshire today - Formartine 1 Nairn 3 - Pictures

If Formartine had won they would have been crowned Highland League Champions today but it was not to be and it was County that won the right to party this evening with their victory over the league leaders.  A feeling of despondency seemed to envelop the home side at North Lodge Park midway into the second half after Conor's second goal. Formartine were not the side that came to Nairn earlier in the season and inflicted such damage. The feeling became infectious and spread to the supporters who started leaving twenty minutes before the final whistle, that trickle of departing fans became a flood in the final five minutes.

Next Saturday it goes down to the wire as Formartine host Cove to decide who takes the title - Nairn's challenge faded somewhat recently but today's effort has ensured an exciting finish to the Highland League this year. It's not over for County too, their final game is away to Huntly and the faithful are planning one more away day Saturday special before the large supporters flag is folded up and put away until next season. Great goals today for Bobo and Conor (now the leading scorer in the league this season).
