Football: Wick end winless drought.
WICK worked well, especially in defence, and fully deserved to at last claim their first win of the season.
Nairn made a lively start, with Willie Barron causing problems for the home defence, but Wick took a 24th minute lead against the run of play.
Steven Reid supplied a pin-point cross from the right touchline and Martin Gunn bulleted a close-range header past Michael Rae.
In the 35th minute Wick keeper Don MacMillan did well to save a Barron lob at the top corner.
David Cowie doubled the Wick lead in the 39th minute, turning 25 yards from goal to sweep the ball into the back of the net.
MacMillan dived to his left to turn away a swerving 25-yard free kick from Gary Farquhar and at the other end Rae denied Michael Bremner at point blank range.
