We are thrilled to confirm that we will again carry the logo of our charity partner, Mikeysline, on our new kits.
The local suicide prevention charity’s logo will appear on the reverse of our new kits, which are due to be launched soon.
This arrangement would not have been possible without input from local oil and gas consultancy, Sidecrystal, whose support has allowed this partnership to continue and the generosity or our new main sponsor, Murray Travel, who have agreed to forego their right to exclusive branding on the kit.
Nairn County Secretary and Vice-Chairman, Ian Finlayson, said:
“We are delighted to continue this partnership with Mikeysline.
“I have to say a big ‘thank you’ to Sidecrystal for their continued and unwavering support on this and to Murray Travel for their extremely generous gesture in allowing Mikeysline to continue to have a presence on our kits.
“We have all learned a lot during the first two years of our relationship with Mikeysline and we are looking forward to it going from strength to strength.
“Our first ever Mental Health Liaison Officer, Brodie Stewart, continues to work closely with Mikeysline to ensure that we are able to offer the best possible support to our players and staff on such an important issue.
“If the work we do in this area at the club helps just one individual, then it most definitely will have all been worthwhile and we will continue to do what we can support and assist Mikeysline in any way possible.”
Gordy Stewart, Sidecrystal director, said:
“Since our initial partnership started two years ago, Mikeysline has grown immeasurably across the region.
“It has become common place for Mikeysline to be associated with many other sporting clubs around the North and we felt it was important to build on the good work already carried out by the club by extending our relationship.
“We hope that continuing to raise awareness of the support that is available will be of benefit to our local community especially as we now have a Hive located in the town.”
Emily Stokes, Chief Executive Officer at Mikeysline said:
“We are delighted for the opportunity to continue our partnership with Nairn County FC and are very grateful to Sidecrystal, the club and Murray Travel for enabling the continued sponsorship and support.
“We have used our time with Nairn County to date to provide talks to players and build up our profile and the knowledge of Mikeysline in the Nairn area and in local schools, of the text-based support we can offer every evening of the week to people of all ages who are experiencing emotional distress, need support with their mental health or are feeling suicidal.
“We are also delighted to have recently opened a new Hive in Nairn at the Highland Yoga Collective Studio in Acre Street on Saturday evenings and we are also one of the partner organisations supporting the monthly community hub due to start at the end of June. We aim to build on all that has been achieved to date and are grateful for the support we have received from the Nairn community in embracing Mikeysline as a local charity.”
Brodie Stewart, Nairn County Mental Health Liaison Officer, added:
“It is brilliant news that our sponsorship partnership with Mikeysline will be continuing for the coming years. A big thank you to SideCrystal and Murray Travel.
“Everyone at the club has seen the wider value of our being involved with Mikeysline and the reaction and involvement from the players has been really positive.
“We strive to continue to push the work of Mikeysline through the club. It is also great news that Mikeysline now have a presence in Nairn which I hope will benefit people in the town and surrounding areas.”
As part of the continued agreement, all Mikeysline’s branding at Station Park will also remain in place.
