Nairn County Football Club is thrilled to announce the appointment of Mr Mark Kelman as our new Chairman.
Mark takes up his new post with immediate effect.
“It is an honour for me to have been offered this position and I am absolutely delighted to accept.
“I have had positive discussions with the Management Committee and it was immediately clear to me that the club has a dedicated, passionate and hard-working group of volunteers who put a fantastic amount of work into running the club on a day-to-day basis.
“That was a huge draw for me as there is definitely the drive and ambition there to move the club forward, which is something we will be working towards.
“I would like to take the opportunity to pay tribute to Donald Matheson and the great work he has done in his time as Chairman to take us to where we are now. There are some great foundations at the club for us to build from in the coming years.
“I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the club over the next few weeks as we head into the new season, including the players and the fans. I am up for the challenge ahead and I cannot wait to get started.”
