Fans of Inverness and Ross County are both very passionate about their football clubs and the focus on football in the highlands next season and they will be looking forward to the new season and finding out when the big highland derby will take place as it will be a momentous and fantastic occasion for everyone concerned at both clubs but they do not have to wait till next season to watch both their teams in action as both sides will feature in a match this Sunday which is a Testimonial match for both Grant Munro and Russell Duncan and will be a fitting and tremendous occasion for both players.
The guys are said to be thrilled at the clubs coming together for such an occasion and they do hope that families from both clubs will come along and enjoy not only the match but a special day for everyone connected with both clubs and all the hard work that has gone in to making sure it takes place.
The match will be a real family occasion and it is hoped that as many fans as possible take the chance to go along to the match and not only pay tribute to the two players but to see some real legends of both clubs in action.
This is the chance to say thank–you to these guys for all they have done for both Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross County.

The Testimonial committee have also been approached by the family of the late Tony Fraser coach driver for both Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle for many years regarding the memorial trophy that was put up by ICT. The trophy was only played for once(Ross County being the winners) and has since been forgotten about, it is the family’s wish to bring his memory back by introducing the cup to the game on Sunday which will add a bit of extra spice to what should be a tremendous occasion for both players and both clubs.
It has been said many times how passionate fans in the highlands are about their football, this coming Sunday will show clubs in the SPL what it means to have two clubs playing there next season.
Good Luck to both Grant and Russell, hope you both enjoy your day!
