Centenary Book

Organised by Donald Wilson/Graeme Macleod/Bill Logan Venue - The Playhouse Date -    14th June 2014 Time - 2.00 pm Cost - £20 Three Nairn County supporters have been hard at work for the last 18 months writing a book to mark the club’s centenary. Journalism graduate Graeme Macleod, former Nairnshire Telegraph reporter Donald Wilson and local amateur historian Bill Logan have meticulously traced the origins of the club all the way through to the present day. The book is due to be released at the end of the current season, which is County’s 100th as members of the Highland League. Co-author Graeme Macleod said: "The history of the club is a complex one because although they were admitted to the Highland League 100 years ago, the story of Nairn County goes a lot further back than that. "The club also never kicked a ball in the league for over four years following their admission and we explain all of that in the book. "After searching through all of the archives, we set about interviewing some of the club’s heroes past and present. The research has uncovered some fascinating tales and debunked one or two myths surrounding the club as well. “We have also enlisted iolaire on Harbour Street to produce the book. They do the production work on the match day programmes for the club and I am sure that all supporters will agree they do a fantastic job – I have no doubts it will be the same with the book.  We hope to put together something that supporters of all ages can enjoy." The authors have agreed to donate all proceeds from the book to the Nairn County Supporters Ground Improvements Fund, which raises money for upgrades at the club’s home, Station Park. The book will be priced at £20.Contact Donald Wilson here to order and arrange payment.

County til we die! Nairn County FC Supporters Ground Improvement Fund
This book has been a collaboration of many people, not just the authors, whose sole aim was to record for posterity the club's history. Thanks to all those involved and thanks also to the Playhouse - what a great venue for the launch. Thanks to the players and former players and managers who turned up today, these included, Wayne Macintosh, Callum Donaldson, Martin Macdonald, Ronnie Sharp, Innes Macdonald, Mansell Craib, Derek Main, Colin Mackenzie,Richard Konzack, Tommy Macgillivray, Chris Rankin, Les Cameron, Neil Gibson and Ian Gibson who took time out of his visit from Australia to attend. Thanks also to all the fans who came or who have bought the book. A colleague in the publishing industry asked me how we were possibly going to fund this book up front. I told him I had great faith in the Nairn County fans and my faith paid off so a great big thank you to you all from Graeme, Bill and myself for generously putting so much money up front. Sales at the Playhouse totalled £700 and with £4,040 of pre ordered books we only need to sell another 40 or so and we are into profit for the fund. We Believe! Donald Wilson
