Centre forward Gary Kerr is back at Nairn County in a major boost to Manager Ross Tokely’s attacking options.

The striker has put pen to paper on a one-year contract with us with an option of a second year.

The 33-year-old is now preparing to start his third spell with the club following the expiry of his contract at Rothes.

Ross Tokely was delighted to bring complete his second signing of the summer having recruited midfielder Alan Pollock earlier in the close season.

He said: “I have had a number of discussions with Gary and throughout he showed a real willingness to come back to the club.

“He has been away for a few seasons now and had a successful time at Rothes but his previous spells here were quite short, so he feels he still has some unfinished business with Nairn.

“He has that hunger about him and he is looking forward to starting pre-season and getting into the swing of it again. He will bring us a different dimension to our attacking play because he is a big, physical striker who is great at holding the ball up and bringing others into play. That is important for the way we want the team to play.

“I am delighted that Gary has chosen to come to Nairn and we are all looking forward to working with him when we start pre-season training next month.”

Gary moved to Rothes in January 2018 at the end of his second spell with us and in his six-and-a-half years at MacKessack Park, he won the Highland League (Morganti) Cup in 2020 and the North of Scotland Cup in 2021.

Prior to that, he had spent 18 months with us, scoring 18 goals in 35 appearances during season 2016/17 and adding a further five to his tally during the first half of the following campaign.

Gary started his Highland League career at Brora Rangers in 2011 before a spell at Inverness City preceded his first move to Station Park, joining us in the summer of 2013. That included a month on loan at Clachnacuddin before he joined Strathspey Thistle permanently in February 2015 and then completed his first return to us in the summer of 2016.
