So that’s FACC officially part of the NoSCA reserve league. Sadly our first game, away to Ross County, ended with a six wicket defeat.

Slightly more unnerving were the crowds surrounding the ground enjoying the warm weather because this game was full ofContinue reading “Match Report: Nairn (Away)”

“I think we’ll have a bowl first” our captain said after a quick inspection of the track. He then lost the toss and we were put in to face first.
