Youth

TWO Nathan Grant goals and a solid team defensive performance earned the under-15s a 2-1 win over Do Soccer Academy at Balintore.

Grant struck to put Nairn in front midway through the second third of the match with a looping effort from long range before adding to his tally in the final third with a similar effort. The home side pulled one back with the last kick of the game.

He lined up alongside Matty Johnstone in midfield with Shaun Young and Ewan Leishman out wide while John Grant and Kyle Grimm led the line.

The defence was superbly marshalled by Steven Allsop alongside Dean Keiro with Ryan Knox and Scott Murray equally impressive in the full back areas in front of goalkeeper Gus Wilson, who made a number of stops before being replaced by Ian Grant, who came off the bench along with Josh Monteiro, Kieran O'Connor and Kieran Thompson.

The under-20s return to North of Scotland League action against Forres Mechanics at Station Park tomorrow (Monday April 3rd) evening. Kick-off at 8.00 pm.
