Match Report

Nairn were narrowly eliminated from the Qualifying Cup at Station Park today. After going behind on 24 minutes Nairn should of equalized when Seaton hit over from 12 yards with an open net in front of him. But County did equalize when Seaton was fouled in the box and Farquhar coverted the resulting penalty. Keeper Mike Rae was on top form and made a series of double saves to keep County in the game in the first half.

Vale went in front in the first 3 minutes of the first half when the Nairn defence was caught sleeping. Farquhar then had a shot saved on 57 minutes before Michael Rae picked up an injury and had to be replaced by Kenny Wood. Wood made an immediate impact after saving a shot from 12 yards out. But Vale increased their lead when McKenzie's shot from just inside the box went into Wood's bottom left hand corner.

Nairn did pull one back when Farquhar put the ball home from 12 yards. County them came so close in the last minute to equalizing but Kellacher's header was headed off the line at the back post.
