COMMUNITY YOUTH FOOTBALL IN NAIRN
We have joined forces with Nairn Soccer 7s and Nairn Fire to provide a more structured approach to youth football in the town.
The aim is to bring both Nairn Soccer 7s and Nairn Fire under the Nairn County umbrella allowing both groups access to additional resources, administrative support and to form a full pathway for young footballers from age 5 through to first team. As part of the new pathway a new Nairn County Under-14s team will be formed with aspirations to compete in the Moray Youth League.
Nairn Soccer 7s was started in 2019 by Jason Robertson and through his hard work saw it grow very quickly, providing opportunities for kids between 5 and 12 years old a chance to play football every Sunday regardless of ability or gender. This year, Nairn Soccer 7s has seen over 130 boys and girls take part under the stewardship of Kenny Spink.
Nairn Fire is a new team formed in Nairn in late 2021. Overseen by Derek Keir, they have over 30 boys and girls at under-8 and under-10 level training on a Monday and playing in matches and festivals on a Saturday morning.
Under the new vision moving forward, Nairn Fire will be renamed Nairn County Fire Kids and will establish an under-12 side. As part of coming under the NCFC umbrella, it will allow access to additional support and the chance to play against other Highland League teams with equivalent age groups and wider football festivals.
Nairn Soccer 7s will also be renamed to become Nairn County Soccer 7s.
All three groups are committed to ensuring the new structure is in place for early 2023. Both Nairn County Soccer 7s and Nairn County Fire will continue to run autonomously with support and guidance from the club.
While our pathway from Under-14s onwards is for boys, both boys and girls are actively encouraged to play with Nairn County Fire and Nairn County Soccer 7s with additional playing options and a girls pathway available with Nairn St Ninian Women’s Team.
