Nairn County F.C. has been given an Award from The Scottish Football Partnership (SFP) to assist with the cost of refurbishing the changing rooms and the internal infrastructure of the main stand at Station Park. The project marks the end of phase 3 of the clubs strategy in regenerating the stadium to meet with the Scottish FA’s National club licensing guidelines. Club Chairman Peter Mackintosh said; “Nairn County fans were invited to Station Park during their August Ground Improvement Fund meeting to view the newly completed £53,000 Phase 3 refurbishment and upgrade of the interior of our 1937 vintage Stand. This project involved the complete renovation and re planning of the Stand interior to meet the latest National Club Licence standards. The dressing rooms can now comfortably seat 23 players and the shower rooms, each with 5 showers and supporting utilities, have been designed to the latest eco-friendly standards achievable – thus breathing new life into the existing Stand interior. The advice and guidance received from the SFP during the planning and programming stage of all three phases of our ground improvement programme proved to be critical in completing all three phases on time and within budget. Nairn County Football Club could not have contemplated the level of capital expenditure involved without the SFP grant aid towards all three projects – which in turn helped the Club unlock significant financial investment from the Supporters Ground Improvement Fund, the Highland Council – Nairn Area Discretionary Fund, the Club’s own resources, and from a generous private benefactor. The Club is now forward-planning further improvements and upgrades to Station Park, which will prove to be a fitting tribute to the local community in this the Club’s centenary season as a member of the Scottish Highland Football League”.
