A good day out for the fans despite the disappointing football - Linlithgow 2 Nairn 0

A quick exit from the Scottish Cup this year for Nairn County. Despite the disappointing result the County fans made the most of it and even had a chance to get up close with the trophy. It was interesting to see the set up at Linglithgow Rose, including the tremendous support they receive. Obviously "junior" football in the Central Belt is a different  league. More images from Linlithgow tomorrow. 

UPDATE: The sun was out in West Lothian yesterday and County fans had a little time to take some refreshment and/or have a stroll around the town before the game. Linlithgow seemed a pretty lively place with the palace obviously drawing tourists into the town. There had been quite a bit of investment by the local council into the Tolbooth building that dominates the square, it had been in a very poor state but now is a very active cultural site with a cafe catering for visitors. A few images below. Pictures of the football to follow. 

Individual images here.

Do you really have to put up pictures of the football? Yesterday is a day I'd rather forget!

Judging by the amount of alcohol consumed by some fans I reckon there will be quite a few who won't remember the day. Most will probably still be asleep as well
