Nairn County Football Club is delighted to confirm that its Management Team and Captain has signed extended contracts. Manager Ronnie Sharp, Assistant Manager Michael Rae and First Team Coach Mark Greig have signed two-year rolling extensions to their deals, which were due to expire in June 2020. In addition, Adam Porritt has signed a fresh two-and-a-half-year contract to summer 2022. Ronnie took over as manager in July 2016 and presided over a complete rebuild of the squad, having inherited just six first team players. He has led his side to 13th, 9th and 11th place finishes in the Highland League table, with the team currently sitting in 7th, just six points off a spot in the top 3. Sharp has also played a major role in the ongoing overhaul of the club’s youth structure, handing 18 teenagers their Highland League debuts in three-and-a-half years along the way. Former goalkeeper Michael Rae also joined the club in July 2016. Following a playing career with Rangers, Buckie Thistle, Lossiemouth, Huntly and Forres Mechanics as well as two-and-a-half years with us, he started out in coaching with now-defunct junior outfit Inverness City, before returning to Station Park to work under Sharp, who was his manager during his time as a player with the club. Mark Greig started out his journey in coaching within the Ross County Children’s Academy, working with the under-10s squad before taking over as the Head Coach of the Nairn County Under-17s for the 2017/18 season and enjoying a rapid rise through the ranks. He became the club’s Under-20s Assistant Coach for the 2018/19 season and was appointed First Team Coach in June 2019 and still carries out coaching duties with the club’s age-group teams. Porritt came through the youth ranks at Ross County before moving to Brora Rangers, where he won the Highland League championship. He then switched to Fort William and reached the North of Scotland Cup final with the Lochaber club before joining us in 2017. The 25-year-old took on the team captaincy in the 2-1 win at Rothes in August, a match in which he found the net. He has scored 16 goals for the club in 85 appearances.
