Written by Nairn County FC November 19th 2014

At this Saturday’s game against Fraserburgh, four new fans from south of the border travel to Nairn from Lewes in East Sussex to see County play for the very first time. Dave Evans was born in Nairn in 1963 when his father was serving at RAF Kinloss. The family moved away soon after and until February this year, Dave had never been back. He came to Nairn with his Dad in February and following a chance meeting with County Director Davy McKinnon (who caught him peering over the wall at Station Park!), had an impromptu tour of the ground and joined the Panel Beaters’ club. Dave, who is a keen follower of Ryman Premier League club Lewes FC, immediately felt at home and vowed to come back soon to see a County game… resulting in the pilgrimage this weekend! Dave will be joined by fellow Lewes fans Norm Duncan, Barry Haffenden and Lee Cobb. Norm (an ex pat Scot from Glasgow) is a Lewes Director and Barry runs the club shop. Lee was also a Director at one time. Lewes is a quirky little town and the lads are very proud of their fan-owned community club – so to Dave, it felt entirely natural to be drawn to County! Dave and his friends have been promised a warm welcome at County and will be presenting a Lewes FC pennant as a token of friendship between our clubs. The four Lewes lads are really looking forward to the game and Dave is sure that he won’t be waiting another 50 years for his next trip to Nairn! David Evans
