Nairn County attacker Sam Urquhart has joined the exodus from Station Park by agreeing a two-year contract with Buckie Thistle.
After the departure ofthe Mackintosh family – Peter Mackintosh and his two sons, Peter, jun, and Michael, who had bankrolled the club through their company Narden – manager Les Fridge resigned and leading scorer Conor Gethins moved to Formartine United.
Inverness-based Urquhart is happy with his move and said: “I was at Nairn for two seasons but this was the right time for me to move.
“I have known Buckie manager Graeme Stewart since I was a youngster and he was at Caley Thistle and it’s a good move for me.”
Urquhart will move to Buckie when his contract runs out next month and Stewart said: “Sam can play up front or wide. His workrate is fantastic, he is a skilful player and there is no doubt he has as much ability as any player in the Highland League.
“We are moving six or seven fringe players but I had three quality players on my shopping list. I now have two of them on board after the signing of Hamish Munro from Formartine United and we’re closing in on the third.”
