Charlie Innes Obituary Death – Charlie Innes, a former player for Nairn County, passed away not too long ago, and the tragic news has left everyone of the club’s current and former players feeling down.
Charlie made a huge role on what is believed to be one of the most significant victories in the history of Nairn County by scoring the first goal in Nairn County’s 2-1 triumph over Meadowbank Thistle in the second round replay of the Scottish Cup in 1986.
This victory is considered to be one of the most significant victories in the history of Nairn County.
After signing with the squad in the summer of 1985, Charlie was an essential component of our early season run to the Inverness Cup final. This run began with a 2-1 victory over Ross County and continued with a 4-3 victory over Caledonian in the semi finals. In the final, we defeated Inverness Caledonian by a score of 4-3. As a result of our loss to Forres Mechanics in the penalty shootout that took place at Kingsmills, we were unable to take the trophy back with us. After playing to a 1-1 draw with Meadowbank in the first matchup of that season, Charlie’s first-half free kick opener placed us on the route to win in that game.
In the previous matchup, we played to a 1-1 draw with Meadowbank. After that, we played Dundee of the Premier Division at Station Park, a match in which Charlie also took part. Dundee was one of our opponents in that game. In the following year, Charlie established a name for himself by scoring an impressive hat trick in a victory over Ross County that ended with a score of 4-1. During the course of his career, Charlie was a member of a number of different teams, including Clachnacuddin and Inverness Thistle. At this time, we want Charlie’s family to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. We ask that you please accept our sincere sympathies.
