The continuing wet weather put paid to Fort William FC’s home Highland League match against Nairn at Claggan Park on Saturday which had to be postponed.

Forecasts for more rain also saw last night’s home league match switched to Forres Mechanics’ Mosset Park ground.

Despite Saturday’s game being off, the club welcomed fans from Lewes Football Club in East Sussex.

They made the 1,140-mile round trip from the south-east coast of England in the hope the game against Nairn would be played, but when it fell victim to the weather, they still enjoyed the warm Claggan Park welcome.

One of the travelling Lewes FC supporters group has links to Nairn. They are pictured with Fort William officials Scott Hunter, John Trew and Colin Wood.

Fort William are due to welcome Deveronvale this Saturday, then Huntly at Claggan Park the following weekend – weather permitting.
