Nairn County wishes to announce that Steven Mackay will stand down as manager of the club at the end of the season.

Steven said: “It has been a great honour for me to manage the club over the last 18 months.

“Winning the North of Scotland Cup this season was a real highlight and it was great to put smiles on the faces of so many people behind the scenes at the club and the supporters.

“It is a great club and I am sure with the squad and the board that is in place, it will continue to make progress over the coming seasons.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Chairman, Mark Kelman, the Management Committee, my assistant David Hind, First Team Coach Brian Macleod, Director of Football Graeme Macleod plus all of the players who have worked under me and the fans for the excellent support I have received during my time as manager of the club.

“I wish Nairn County the very best of luck for the future.”

Chairman Mark Kelman added: “After discussions with the Management Committee, we came to the mutual agreement that Steven would stand down from his position at the end of the season.

“I would like to thank Steven for all of the excellent work he has done while manager of the club. There is no doubt that we have taken significant strides forward during his tenure and we hope to be able to see the legacy of his hard work across future seasons.

“Bringing silverware back to Station Park with our North of Scotland Cup success in November was a significant milestone and Steven deserves enormous credit for achieving that in such a short timeframe from when he took on the job.

“We all appreciate the significant amount of time and effort Steven dedicated to the job during his time with us and we would like to wish him all the best for his future endeavours.

“The process of identifying the new manager of Nairn County has already commenced.”

Steven was unveiled as our manager on October 4th 2022. To date, he has taken charge of 68 matches, winning 34, drawing 11 and losing 23. As well as adding the North of Scotland Cup to our honours list for the eighth time earlier in the season, he also became the first player in our history to score for the club in four different decades back in February 2023.
