A brace from Brian Graham secured a 100% record for County in the group stage of the Betfred Cup. He fired in from a Gardyne cross to put them ahead after fifteen minutes and headed home with fifteen remaining in a comfortable evening for the Staggies.

The second part of my Highland double during our stay in Inverness.
The breadknife accompanied me for this one and afterwards we had a drink in every pub in town, well...both of them - The Caledonian and The Mallard.
