Sat 21st Nov - Wick 6-2 Nairn

Wick Academy finally ended their wait for a first senior trophy in emphatic style by brushing aside Nairn County at Dudgeon Park, Brora.  

As delighted manager Gordon Connelly said, “It was a fantastic performance today from start to finish. I read a quote the other day that formations don’t win games but I beg to differ. Everything was right and finished off today. I thought that was in us – maybe not 6-2 - but a performance like that considering the state of the pitch and the conditions was fantastic. The 2 quick goals to put us 3-0 up when Nairn were on top really put us in control. Our cup run started here at Brora with our penalty shoot-out win and here we are again collecting the trophy. They are a good side, don’t be fooled by the score line – we have beaten a good side and beaten them convincingly.”   

Les Fringe rued the way the first half unfolded. “They had 3 chances and took them all. We had 4 good chances and didn’t take any. It was Wick’s day. We’ve been here before and won it and lost it. We hit the bar and the post, chances were cleared off the line. We went down to 10 men and that was it over.” 

Nairn almost went ahead in the 6th minute when Conor Gethins fed Robbie Duncanson and his drive was well held by Sean McCarthy. Wick went straight up the other end and Richard MacAdie’s run into the box was halted when he was brought down by Nairn keeper Callum Antell. Macadie despatched the penalty kick to put the Scorries ahead.  

Nairn should have equalised on 23 minutes when Tony Wallace was put clear on the left hand side of the penalty box. His shot beat the Wick keeper but it rolled agonisingly wide of the far post. 

Nairn were made to rue that miss a few minutes later when Wick finished an excellent move down the left channel started by Sam MacKay and continued by Steven Harrison, whose low left wing cross was gleefully fired in by Gary Weir.  

The Wee County were still reeling from this setback when the Scorries struck another blow a minute later. Grant Campbell’s cross to the far post was headed back by Gary Weir and finished off by the onrushing Sam MacKay. 

Nairn started the second half on the front foot as they attempted to get back into the game and they did pull a goal back on 58 minutes when Gethins fed Sam Urquhart and his cross was thumped home by Pollock to reduce the deficit. However, it took Wick just three minutes to restore their three goal cushion when a left wing cross was driven in at the far post by Michael Steven.  

Nairn’s sorry day continued in the 66th minute when Steven Harrison drove into the net for Wick’s nap hand.  

An off the pitch rammy on 76 minutes ended with a straight red for Nain’s Gregg Main and a yellow for Wick’s Gary Weir. The sending off ended any lingering hopes of a comeback Nairn may have had and a minute later, Grant Campbell’s right wing run and cross ran right across the goal line and in at the far post for Wick’s 6th goal. 

In added time Nairn’s Sam Urquhart headed in a consolation for Nairn to make the final score 6-2 to Wick.
