Match Report

Forres Mechanics retained their leadership of the North Highland League by outplaying Nairn County. Many scoring chances were missed by the Forres forwards.

The home team were superior in the first half, but brilliant play by Webster, the Nairn 'keeper, saw the teams cross over on levels terms.

Simpson gave Forres the lead after twelve minutes, and Robertson netted a second shortly afterwards. Nairn reduced the leeway through Ballatyne. Simpson increased the home total.
