Match Report

Forres Mechanics gained the verdict in this North Highland League fixture, but the County forwards were to blame for failing to turn an outfield superiority into goals.

For the first fifteen minutes Nairn were playing well, but Forres gradually settled and before half-time were deservedly three up through McIlroy and W Taylor (2).

There was no doubt about Nairn's superiority in the second half, but the forwards missed some glaring chances. Sampson reduced the leeway in the fifteenth minute, and Bowie got a second five minutes later.
