GOALS in the first and last 10 minutes of this pre-season friendly saw visitors Airdrieonians earn a second win over Highland League opposition in less than 24 hours following the League 1 club's victory over Strathspey Thistle last night. In their first visit to Nairn since a match against Nairn Thistle in 1896, the Diamonds took the lead early on when former St Johnstone, Blackpool and Scotland under-21s striker Keigan Parker showed all his nous to latch on to a fine through pass and slide the ball beyond Nairn goalkeeper Callum Donaldson with an accurate shot from a tight angle when the margin for error was nil. Nairn fielded a trialist up front alongside Robbie Duncanson in the first half and he was replaced at the interval by Conor Gethins – earlier named players and supporters player of the year for last season – to restore the club's prolific strike partnership and immediately there was an impetus added to the County attack, aided by the midfield craft of a further two trialists who were also introduced at half time. The quartet of trialists – only one of whom featured at Elgin in midweek – was completed by a second half substitution and despite Nairn's best efforts to force an equaliser, it was Airdrie who bagged the second goal of the game in the final minute through John Boyle.
