Nairn County supporters have set up an online fundraising page after the Highland League club’s 102-year existence was plunged into severe doubt.
An extraordinary general meeting will take place next Tuesday after chairman Peter Mackintosh and his two sons, Peter A and Michael, all stepped down last weekend.
The Mackintosh brothers’ company Narden, which was also the club’s main sponsor, had effectively been bank-rolling the club for the last two decades.
Secretary Donald Matheson has appealed for fresh financial assistant and said in a statement that the ‘severity of the situation the club now finds itself in cannot be overstated’.
An online page set up on gofundme.com raised £1,600 of the £5,000 target within 24 hours of going live.
Mashy Young, who created the fundraising page, said: “There is a very real danger that 102 years of Nairn County will come to an end if the short term cashflow issues facing the club now are not resolved soon.
“To give the club a fighting chance, any donation received is greatly appreciated.
“I’ve been asked by Donald Matheson and the NCFC Board to pass on their thanks and appreciation to everyone who has donated so far, suggested ideas for fundraising, and for the all-around positivity and encouragement shown by supporters over the last few days. Thank you.”
