Stuart Kettlewell & Steven Ferguson deployed the troops to matches at Forres & Nairn this afternoon with two impressive victories coming from both matches.
At Mosset Park, Forres, the Staggies took part in a testimonial match for long serving Ross MacPherson. In what was a superb atmosphere the Staggies ran rampant with an 11-0 victory over their Highland League counterparts. Keith Watson opened the scoring before Declan McManus grabbed 4 and Brian Graham knocked in 3. Paton, Murray and Armstrong rounded off the scoring on a very impressive Staggies performance.
Only a few miles further West, another Staggies XI managed a 3-0 victory over Ronnie Sharp’s Nairn County. Returning from injury, Billy McKay scored in between strikes from Ross Stewart and Joel MacBeath.
The Players and Management would like to thank both teams, their committees and supporters for a very warm welcome this afternoon and for providing great, competitive matches for both the home and away fans. The club also thanks Ross MacPherson for selecting us as opponents in such an important match for him. All the very best in your testimonial season from all at Ross County Football Club.
Finally a big thank you to all the Staggies fans that travelled to both Nairn and Forres to cheer us on today. Our club is built on your support.
