Club captain, Fraser Dingwall has agreed a new contract with us to keep him at the club until 2026.

The centre half has become a lynchpin of the team in recent seasons and pledging his future to the club comes as a huge boost to Manager and his former centre half partner, Ross Tokely.

With Tokely himself retiring, the 26-year-old is ready to take on an even more senior role within our backline this season as we head into the 2024/25 season.

Fraser joined us in 2018 after time in the North Caledonian League and is preparing for his seventh season at Station Park.

Ross Tokely was delighted to have secured the future of a central figure within his squad. He said: “Fraser agreeing a new contract is great news for the club and gives us a timely boost as we step up our preparations for the new season.

“Having played alongside Fraser in central defence for the last season and a half, I know how good a footballer and how solid a defender he is. He has those old school traits of winning his tackles and his headers and a desire not to concede goals but he can play a bit as well.

“He is captain of the club for good reason. He is an influential player among the squad and he has the leadership skills required too. Keeping players like Fraser at the club is important to what we want to achieve and how we want to progress, so I am delighted that he has agreed a new contract and I am looking forward to continuing to work with him.”

Fraser was signed in the summer of 2018 after starring for Avoch in the Inverness Amateur League. He had come through the youth programme at Alness United to reach their first team, before moving on to local rivals, Invergordon, where he won several honours.

He was named captain of the club in 2022 and skippered us to the North of Scotland Cup last season, becoming the Nairn County first captain to lift silverware in 12 years. He has made 134 appearances for the club so far, scoring 15 goals.
