ABOUT THE DRAGONS
The Nairnshire Dragons are an American football team based in Nairn with the intention of becoming a kitted team in a few years’ time. The club was founded in 2016 by Daniel Woodley and Tom Green.
This isn't the first time that Nairn Academy has hosted an American football team as in 2016 they sent a team down to the Inverness NFL Flag Tournament which was hosted by the Highland Wildcats and NFL UK. The team finished second in the competition narrowly losing out to the Inverness High Colts on points in the round robin competition.
The Nairnshire Dragons became a charity in November 2017 and was hoping to compete at under 17 contact level in 2018 however we are not able to do this as there has been a lack of players. Instead of the under 17 the Dragons are intending to start a Flag league for the under 12 age group in 2018 with the aim now to enter a under 17 team into the league in the 2019 season whilst continuing with the under 12 flag league.
