One interested spectator taking in Saturday's Scottish Cup tie between Nairn County and Arbroath at Gayfield will be Grant Clark son of Nairn County stalwart of the sixties, defender Bobby Clark. Grant writes: "A wee bit of history on my families point of view , first time ever that I know of that my fathers two teams have played each other in the Scottish cup .would like to hear different but can't find anything .. I will be popping down on Saturday rain ,hail or shine hopefully sunshine and no wind ,doesn't happen at Arbroath though ..."
Bobby was a very solid defender and played in the great Nairn side of the early sixties. Met him several times playing golf at the Nairn Dunbar. he had a holiday chalet at Lochloy and loved returning to Nairn. Great sportsman and a real gent.
