Nairn County manager Ronnie Sharp has branded the decision not allowing the club to play Turriff United tomorrow as ridiculous.

Nairn said they were previously told if they were knocked out of the Highland League Cup at Rothes on Wednesday, they would head to Turriff in the Highland League on Saturday.

But Nairn were informed by league officials shortly after full time in the 4-1 defeat at Rothes on Wednesday that the league encounter was not allowed to go ahead.

Nairn now have a two-week wait for their next match as they have a bye-week on Saturday, December 14.

Sharp says Nairn were told win or lose they would have a match in either the league or the league cup tomorrow.

He says he has found the decision baffling.

“We were originally told that if we won at Rothes we would play Keith in the league cup quarter finals,” he said.

“If we didn’t we were told that we would play at Turriff in the league, now we’re not and I find it baffling."
