The worst kept secret in Nairn can now be confirmed – Andrew Macleod has joined us on loan from Ross County.

The midfielder made the temporary switch to Station Park at the same time as his Staggies teammate, George Robesten. However, illness has prevented the 18-year-old from linking up with our squad until now and he comes into contention to debut at Loch Ness tomorrow.

Manager Steven Mackay thinks he has a top prospect on his hands. He said: “Andrew is highly thought of at Ross County – everyone you speak to there thinks he has a really good chance of making it to the first team.

“He has the physical attributes needed to be a success in the Highland League and he is really good on the ball too, which is what we are looking for from our players in the midfield positions.

“Andrew‘s versatility will be an added bonus for us too. He has played at right back and centre half already in his career, which are areas we have been lacking numbers in our recent friendly matches, with players having to play out of position to cover us.

“We are delighted to have Andrew at the club and I would like to thank Malky Mackay, Don Cowie and Stevie Ferguson for helping us to make this deal happen. We are all looking forward to working with Andrew.”

Andrew spent the first half of last season at Clachnacuddin, where his performances drew the attentions of Brora Rangers, who took him on loan for the second half of the season.

He featured as a half time substitute for Ross County in their recent friendly against us at Station Park, playing the second half at right back. He also came off the bench for the Staggies in their home friendly match against Queens Park a fortnight ago and has now joined us until January.
