One exceptional man's fight against Myelofibrosis

"Nairn County fans, players and coaches will all be on cloud nine after another impressive win on Saturday against Wick Academy, however this game also marked the announcement that assistant manager Ally
Macleod will miss the second half of the season due to illness.

The popular and ambitious Kinlochbervie native has now received a date for the gruelling treatment programme that he will require to undergo as he seeks to overcome a rare form of leukaemia. While most are shaking off a hangover on January 2nd Macleod will undergo a bone marrow transplant which will see him miss the remainder of the season, and the majority of the year."   More on the Highland League Football Hub pages here. 

A remarkable interview with Ally by Graeme MacLeod also featured in this week's NCFC programme for the game against Wick and also appeared later on the Fans We Believe Facebook pages. In that interview Ally also makes a plea to people to register with the Anthony Nolan Appeal, a charity which tries to find donors with life-saving blood matches for people in a similar situation as himself.
