We are delighted to announce that Scott Davidson has signed a new contract with us.
The striker has agreed a two-year deal with a one-year option.
Scott joined us from Brora Rangers and in his time at Station Park, he has made 28 appearances, scoring eight goals.
The 27-year-old got off to a flier with us, coming off the bench the day after signing to force an own goal in a 3-1 home win over Huntly on November 30th 2019.
He went on to grab five goals in nine appearances before the Covid-19 pandemic closed the season down.
Once the following season started on December 12th 2020, Scott blasted home a screamer on the opening day as we beat Threave Rovers 4-0 in the Scottish Cup.
He has been dogged by injuries this season but made a decisive contribution in the away win at Huntly on October 6th by grabbing his only two goals of the season so far.
Scottie started his Highland League career with Clachnacuddin and after a loan spell at Fort William, he then moved to Claggan Park on a permanent basis.
He blasted over 30 goals for the Lochaber club in season 2016/17 as he helped fire the Fort all the way to the final of the North of Scotland Cup, where he grabbed an equaliser before opponents Brora Rangers eventually eased to a 4-1 win.
His performances caught the attentions of Inverness CT and he spent the summer of 2017 on trial at the Caledonian Stadium, although an injury put paid to his chances of earning a full time deal.
He then spent the next 18 months at Rothes before a transfer to Brora Rangers, where he won the North of Scotland Cup.
After almost a year at Dudgeon Park, we swooped to bring in the centre forward in November 2019.
Director of Football, Graeme Macleod said:
“Scott has been really unfortunate in his time with us – he had just got up and running when the first lockdown hit and last season was obviously pretty much a write-off for everyone.
“Scottie then came back raring to go in the summer but an Achilles injury disrupted his pre-season, which meant he was playing catch up once the season started.
“He then sustained a knee injury which he has finally got to the bottom of after a stop-start few months. He is heading down the road on Thursday for an operation, which we all hope will get him sorted once and for all.
“Scottie has a great enthusiasm for football and I know how frustrated he has been with how it has gone for him, particularly recently. We all believe in Scottie though and we all know the ability and goalscoring prowess he possesses.
“A fit and firing Scott Davidson would be an asset to any team in the Highland League, so we are delighted that he has agreed to commit his future to Nairn County. The fans are yet to see the best of him over a sustained period and I know he is determined to get back to his best and show everyone once again what a top player he is.”
