100615 Old Cowshed demolished, Project Cowshed has begun!
Project Cowshed has begun and the old Cowshed has been demolished and removed. Exciting times, folks, as this is why we’ve been raising the funds. Sad to see the old enclosure go but looking forward to see the new one take shape. Thanks to Colin Barron and David Walker for the photo’s.

010615 Legends game, 20th June 2015
The Legends Game will be played at the Riverside on the 20th of June where a supporters team will play a NCFC legends team managed by former NCFC player Mark Holmes. Many thanks to Jamie Begg who has agreed to referee the game. Kick off is 2pm. After the game there will be a buffet laid on by Heather Stevenson at Uncle Bobs then there will be an NCFC themed quiz hosted by Brian Paxton.I have managed to source an old First team jersey from the club which will be signed by the players and auctioned off to add to the pot for the day. If you are interested in playing let me know ASAP with a £20 registration fee with all monies going to the GIF pot. Would be good to get a decent crowd down to the Riverside to watch the old NCFC players of yester-year.Ali Nicol

Finally there will be an auction of two Nairn County signed tops one of the current team (centenary home top) another older match worn home top kindly donated by Nairn County FC which will be signed by the Legends who play in this Saturdays game and the last auction will be the Legends manager, ex County player Mark Holmes, boots which he has very kindly donated. Following Donald Graham’s very successful Centenary reunion it will be superb to have so many people with a love of the club together. Still pre-season so hopefully a really good turn out at the Riverside and back to Uncle Bobs afterwards where we can catch up with some ex County heroes of the past. Some of the Legends we hope to see are; Michael Rae, David Macdonald, David Kennedy, Michael Sanderson, Steve Sanderson, Gary Farquhar, Ronnie Sharp, Ali Nicol, Bob Maclean, Simon Wharton,Willie Barron, Garry Ewing, Johnny Seaton, Mo Macmillan and Alan Cormie. In total for both teams we have 32 players from both squads paying £20 per head to boost the GIF up to £640 then hopefully the three auctions and quiz will boost the total raised on the day.Hopefully catch up with you all on Saturday folks. I might even have a shandy or two!!!!!Ali Nicol
200615 The Legends win!
The Nairn County FC Legends turned out at the Riverside playing field on a beautiful sunny afternoon and took on the Nairn County FC Supporters in an entertaining match. The Legends, all now older and many a wee bit heavier than in their playing days, quickly turned on their old skills which more than made up for their lack of pace. The supporters gave a valiant performance but finally succumbed to a 12- 0 defeat. But the day was not about winning it was about taking part, having fun and meeting old mates. Thanks to everyone who took the time to take part and who turned up to watch. Thanks also to St Ninian FC who supplied the strips and equipment and the use of the changing rooms at the Showfield and to Heather at Uncle Bob's for the buffet and for the quiz afterwards.Altogether nearly £1295 was raised along with another £310 from auctions.Ali Nicol has high hopes for a return match next year and for making this an annual event.Image courtesy of Kenny Macleod, Cutter PhotographyBack row L-R back row- Ronan Mackay, Darren Houston, Jack Anderson, Kevin Johnston, Logan Johnston, Steve Sanderson, Kerr Mckellar, Grant Falconer, James Michie, Ronnie Sharp, Greame Macleod, Ross Hepburn, Brandon Scott, James Wallace, Scott Kellacher, Brian Paxton, Joab Hayward, Daryl Breathet, Bob Maclean.Front row L-R- Gavin Nicholson, Marc Woods, John Seaton, Callum Forsyth, Marc Macdonald, Trevor Ross, Mark Holmes, Jamie Begg (referee) David Kennedy, Ian Finlayson, Martin Cooper, Ali Nicol, Gary Farquhar and Chris Rankin.
