• We are delighted to announce that Inverness Athletic are officially a North Caledonian League team. We would like to thank the league and existing clubs for allowing us to join, and we look forward to visiting all these new grounds.


    It has been 2 years in planning for us to get to this stage, and we have a strong committee and management team. We are delighted to announce that our club will be managed by Chris Darch, with David Osbourn as his assistant.


    Club Chairman, Sandy Stephen, said \'I am delighted that what was a pipe dream 2 years ago has now become a reality, and I can\'t wait for our first game. I am over the moon that Chris has decided to become manager, and David as his assistant, their experience will be vital. Thanks to everyone else on the committee for helping us achieve our goal on membership of the North Caledonian League.\'


    New manager Chris Darch has said \'I am truly honoured at becoming the manager of Inverness Athletic FC - a chance I jumped at. To be apart of a new club from the very beginning and help it grow is very exciting. Inverness has been crying out for a team to represent in the North Caledonian League with an abundance of fantastic player\'s who deserve to be playing their football at this level. Whilst being involved in both the Inverness Amateur League with Hilton and brief spells at both Grantown and Fort William I feel I am in a good position to take Inverness Athletic on to great success. The structure of the club is sound with a very strong committee that will help grow this club on and off the pitch. Exciting times for everyone involved and I hope to be apart of this club for many years to come.\' Chris came through the youth system at Cardiff City, and has won 2 Welsh Premier League titles with Barry Town. He also played in Europe with Barry Town against Italian club Fiorentina.


    We, as a committee, are looking forward to the season, If anyone would like to support us in our debut season with sponsorship then please get in contact with Sandy Stephen - invernessathleticfc@gmail.com
