County just fail to conquer the Cattachs - Brora 4 Nairn 3

Up past a slightly snowy Ben Bhraggie and other landmarks on an overcast December day with the eternal optimism that is the lifeblood of many a Saturday afternoon generating the usual good craic; up the A9 towards a tough appointment in Sutherland   – so it was a trek again to Brora’s Dudgeon Park that produced an exciting game but nothing came out of it for County, although Les’s men fought to the end in a frantic second half performance to achieve a gallant 4-3 as Brora took the points to create a 7 point gap between the two sides. Might have been a different story if we hadn’t made mistakes, Brora looked very dull until they scored their first goal and then they turned on the style but had to face a County onslaught in the second half.  This observer looks forward to seeing Ross’s SHFLtv video when it gets posted on line. Not bad against the league leaders who haven’t lost at home this season. A fantastic turn out of County support at Brora too. Gone were the legions of red and white that appeared at the Grant Street Park for the North Cup Final – at their home ground it looked as though County fans matched them in numbers. It was a hard one to take for the Wee County loyal support but they are not deflated and are looking forward to getting behind the team again next Saturday when Cove make the trip from the east to step out at Station Park.

Great banter with Brora fans too, both before the game in the social club and during the match. They knew they had achieved a big, big result but a lot of them too had respect for the County performance and the impressive numbers of fans we took north with us. Que sera, sera.

 Despite the result the faithful, young and not so young, made the most of the afternoon in Brora
