And there was more woe for City manager Gavin Price when midfield star Brian Cameron limped off with a groin injury.

Cameron will be a doubt for Elgin's opening game of the campaign when they visit Championship side Arbroath in the Betfred Cup on Saturday.

The Moray side were almost at full strength for the match in Inverness and alarmingly for Price they conceded three goals in the opening five minutes.

Scott Dunn, son of Elgin goalkeeping coach Stevie, put Clach ahead on two minutes before Sean Webb headed in a second almost immediately and Ross Logan added a third.

Cameron limped off to be replaced by Rory MacEwan and City did battle back with two goals from Shane Sutherland and Darryl McHardy before the break.

But Martin Callum scored a fourth home goal and although MacEwan netted another for City, they ended up losing 4-3.

The only two absentees from the Elgin line-up at Clach were striker Kane Hester and centre back Andy McDonald, who both had slight injuries and weren't risked.
