Nairn County’s Davidson scores with some fatherly advice

Scott Davidson reckons advice from his father helped tip him towards a move to Nairn County.

A goal on his debut for the Wee County against Huntly on Saturday was the perfect way to mark his switch from Brora Rangers, with Roddy watching on at Station Park.

Roddy played in the Highland League for both Inverness Thistle and Caledonian. He felt the 25-year-old had lost his enjoyment for football after falling down the pecking order at Brora following the arrival of Jordan and Andrew MacRae.

Strathspey Thistle and Buckie Thistle were both in for him but, after chats with his father plus meeting Nairn boss Ronnie Sharp, Station Park appeared the perfect choice. Davidson said: “I came home from work one day and my dad asked what the script was with my football.

“I wasn’t sure what to do. I didn’t want to leave Brora, as it’s a great group of lads, but he said the main thing was I needed to be playing. There was no enjoyment in my face come Saturday.

“My old man has been there and done it so if he’s saying that I need to get something sorted.

“I will always give him a call after games and chat to him about it. He’s a good guy to get advice from.

“I went through to Nairn to speak to Ronnie and (director of football) Graeme Macleod and they showed me about the place. I was impressed with the whole set-up.

“My dad was at the game on Saturday and he was chuffed. He’s played with Ronnie too and said ‘Nairn seems like it’s right for you’.”

Davidson came off the bench to add to goals from Adam Porritt and Kenny McKenzie to maintain Nairn’s unbeaten home record.

The striker has also turned out for Clach, Fort William and Rothes in the Highland League, leaving Mackessack Park for Brora at the turn of the year.

A 30-goal haul for the Fort three seasons ago netted him a trial with Caley Thistle.
