We have added our first new signing of the close season to the squad with the arrival of Gordon McNab.

The 33-year-old midfielder joins us on a one-year contract from Forres Mechanics.

This marks McNab’s second spell with the club having spent the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons at Station Park, winning our Player of the Year prize in his maiden campaign.

Manager Ronnie Sharp said:

“We are delighted to bring Gordy back to the club. He will bring quality to the midfield and is also an experienced player who has been around the Highland League for a number of years.

“Gordy knows what the club is all about having been here before, so we do not see any problems with him settling in right away. Most of the players who are here now were part of the team when Gordy was here previously too.

“We expect Gordy to bring us extra quality to the middle of the park to help us create more chances for our forward players as he is a skillful player who is good on the ball. He will also bring us good energy and although he has not played much recently, he has kept himself in good shape and he is eager to get going with pre-season training.”

Director of Football Graeme Macleod added: “Gordy will be a quality addition to the squad and we are delighted to bring him back to the club.

“During our discussions with Gordy, it was evident that he was really keen to come back and join us which was encouraging. He is a local player from Nairn who did well for us when he was here before, so he will need no introduction to the supporters.

“He brings bags of experience to the squad and fits the profile of player we are looking to bring to the club. We are all looking forward to seeing him back out there in a Nairn County jersey once more.”

Gordy started out his career as a youth at Ross County before spending four years at Clachnacuddin.

After a short spell with Strathspey Thistle, he then spent three seasons at Forres Mechanics, where he won the Highland League championship.

A single season at Nairn St Ninian followed where he was named league player of the year before he spent a year-and-a-half at Inverness City.

Short spells at Huntly and Rothes followed before McNab spent a season at Wick Academy prior to joining us for his first spell, where he scored five goals in 28 appearances. Image by Kenny Macleod Photography.
