The 37-year-old has joined from Highland League rivals Formartine United on a one-year-deal.

Gethins first joined Nairn in 2011 and spent five years at the club before moving to Pitmedden in 2016.

During his first spell at Nairn, Gethins netted 173 goals in 178 appearances making him the club's second highest goal scorer of all time.

He won the Highland League Player of the Year award in 2013 - when he was also the league's top scorer

Speaking about returning to Nairn, Gethins says he feels like he has come home.

He said: "When I left Formartine, coming back to Nairn was always my first choice.

"I have been impressed by the progress made by the club over the last few years and I am hungry to help the team improve even more.

"There are a lot of fantastic, young players at Nairn and I feel I can bring that bit of extra experience they need to help improve and hopefully unlock more goals.

"The management have ambitions to push the team further up the table and I will do everything I can to help us achieve that.

"I am looking forward to catching up with some familiar faces at the club and among the supporters and meeting my new teammates at the start of pre-season training.

"It feels like I am coming home and I am delighted."
