We can confirm that Conor Gethins has today left the club to take over as the new manager of Clachnacuddin.
Conor returned to Nairn County in 2021 and in just over two seasons back at the club, he scored 36 goals to take him to a grand total of 209 strikes in yellow and black, making him just the second person in our history to net more than 200 goals for the club after Davy Johnston.
The 39-year-old came through the ranks at Ross County and following short spells at Ross County and Stirling Albion, he returned to his native Republic of Ireland with Finn Harps, where he won the league’s Player of the Year prize.
Conor came back to Scotland in 2010 and featured for Peterhead for a season before his first spell at Nairn County commenced in 2011, with his performances earning him back-to-back Highland League Player of the Year awards in 2013 and 2014 as well as a spot in the Nairn County Team of the Century, as voted for by the fans.
He spent five years with Formartine United after ending his first spell at the club in 2016 and now progresses into the next stage of his career with his first job in management.
We all wish Conor the very best of luck in his new role and thank him for all his years of fantastic service to Nairn County FC.
