THE second pre-season match of the summer sees Nairn County welcome another Championship title-hopeful to Station Park as Inverness CT follow in the footsteps of their local rivals, Ross County with a visit to Station Park.
That match against the Staggies got the home side’s round of pre-season fixtures underway as they paid tribute to club captain Gregg Main, who made a successful return from a 14-month injury layoff with an 80-minute performance in the midfield engine room.
County now go into their second match of the summer against John Robertson’s men, who are already well and up and running with their pre-season preparations having already taken on four Highland League sides prior to this visit to Station Park.
