NAIRN County FC can now confirm that Tony Wallace, Bradley Halsman and Callum Donaldson have all left the club.

The trio are out of contract and have been informed by the club that their deals will not be renewed.

Interim chairman Donald Matheson said: "All three players have been great professionals and given fantastic service to the club during their time with us. I would like to thank all three of them for everything they have done for Nairn County and wish them well in their future careers."

Wallace joined the club from BSC Glasgow last summer on a one-year deal. The former Greenock Morton and Dumbarton man made 23 appearances for the club and scored eight goals, the most memorable of which was a fine equaliser away at Brora Rangers as County recorded a stunning 2-1 win.

Halsman arrived at Station Park two years ago from Partick Thistle having previously been on the books of Motherwell and Aberdeen. The 23-year-old made 47 appearances in his time at the club.

Goalkeeper Donaldson came through the Station Park youth ranks debuting away at Huntly on March 13th 2003 as a 17-year-old. After several season out on loan at Nairn St Ninian and Strathspey Thistle, he established himself as the club's number one during the 2008/09 season.

He won the North of Scotland Cup as an unused sub early on during that campaign and then kept a clean sheet as County scooped the 2011 Highland League Cup with a 4-0 success over Fraserburgh. Probably his finest hour in a Nairn shirt was his man-of-the-match display in the 2012/13 North of Scotland Cup final as his impressive performance kept Wick Academy at bay, allowing County to ride a second half storm before securing the trophy in extra time.

His last appearance was during the home win over Deveronvale on September 20th 2014 when he suffered a serious hamstring injury. Since his return to fitness, work commitments in Houston, USA have rendered the 31-year-old unavailable for selection.

All three players leave with the thanks of everyone at Nairn County, the best wishes for the future and the assurance that they will be made more than welcome should they choose to return to Station Park at any time in the future.
