Six likely lads from London had a good day out at Station Park on Saturday. The groundhoppers who have traveled all over the UK and Europe to sample different cultures, meet new people and get a taste of football at different levels chose to hop on the sleeper from London to Inverness. When they arrived they wanted out of the big city – good choice lads – they could have ended up at Grant Street watching Clach beat Forres but chose to head to Nairn where we met up in Uncle Bobs. They were suitably impressed by Station Park and Nairn's performance in their 2-1 win over Lossie. Told them we normally play at lot better and score more goals! They left with pics with some of the Nairn subs and Darth and Stormtrooper. Not every game they meet these two characters on the terracings at a football match. Claimed going to these matches keeps them away from the beer for a couple of hours – not true from what I witnessed at Bobs and after the game at the Legion. Got some nice pics to take home with them and they boarded a train for the night life of the Sneck at 6pm with plans to visit Loch Ness on Sunday before returning south on Sunday. I was able to give them a potted history of the club and they very impressed by the ground. Hope you all had a good day lads. The lads in the pic are Sam Cleary (Villa fan) Graham Scobie (Wigan) Grant Hamilton (Tranmere Rovers) Joby Carpenter and Stuart Hood (Crewe Alexandra) and Scott Neil (Altringham) – not in any particular order.
