Official opening of the Davy Johnston enclosure Saturday against Rothes 2.45pm

Built by funds raised by the Community the new Cowshed gets its official naming at Station Park on Saturday. It was incredible how so many groups, individuals and organisations rallied round to help fund the project. The Gurn understands there will be more details about the ceremony in a local quality weekly newspaper that is usually available in a Co-op near you later on on a Monday evening. 

Local author Donald Wilson told the Gurn:

"Six years ago I had this book published as a tribute to Nairn County's greatest ever player. I never thought we be here today with an enclosure named in his

memory. The official opening is on Saturday against Rothes 2.45pm. Davy made his debut for County against Rothes in November 1958 just days after his sixteenth birthday. Let's make sure we recognise the occasion in style. If you are free get up to Station park early on Saturday. Arguably this has been the most important infrastructure development at the ground since the original stand was built in 1937 and then refurbished in 2014.
