Today, we can confirm that our longest serving player, Glenn Main, has left Nairn County.

The 37-year-old ends a lengthy association with the club and we remain in discussions with him to arrange an appropriate send off.

Manager Steven Mackay explained: “Glenn’s service to Nairn has been incredible and will likely never be matched. He has dedicated his entire Highland League career to one football club, and I have an enormous amount of respect for him for that.

“The club is now entering into a new era and Glenn and I discussed what was best for him and the club and we mutually agreed that this was the right outcome.

“The club will work with Glenn over the next few months to arrange a game at the end of the season to give the fans the opportunity to acknowledge Glenn’s commitment and service which is the very least that he deserves.”

Director of Football Graeme Macleod said: “Glenn has had an amazing Nairn County career and can be rightly proud of what he has achieved with the club.

“A local player who came through the youth ranks, Glenn debuted as a teenager and has gone on to make a club record number of appearances.

“He has won a North of Scotland Cup and a Highland League (Morganti) Cup – scoring in the final – playing a huge part in all our successes over the last couple of decades.”

He added: “Glenn’s career should serve as an inspiration to all young players in Nairn aspiring to make it to the First Team. He has rarely missed a training session or a match in his time with the club and been a model professional – he has been asked to play in every outfield position in his time with the club and done so without giving it a second thought.

“I am sure he would have had opportunities go elsewhere during his time with the club should he have sought out a move. But Glenn has shown tremendous loyalty to us over a long period of time.

“Glenn will rightly go down as a legend of Nairn County Football Club. We all wish him the very best with whatever he decides to do next and thank him for everything he has done for the club over such a long period of service.”

Glenn moved up through the club’s Under-14s, Under-16s and Under-18s teams before debuting on May 7th 2003 as a 17-year-old.

He spent the 2004/05 and 2005/06 seasons on at loan at Nairn St Ninian, who he joined permanently in the summer of 2006. Just a year later though, he made the move back to Station Park, where he was to spend the next 14 full seasons.

Glenn played in six cup finals for the club, winning the 2011 Highland League (Morganti) Cup and the 2012 North of Scotland Cup.

He made a club record 496 appearances for Nairn County and scored a total of 22 goals.
