Huntly’s final pre-season game ended in defeat as an Aberdeen XI netted four times inside the first half.

Huntly made changes from the side which lost to Dyce on Saturday with Euan Storrier, Blair Johnston, Glenn Murison, David Booth and Bradley Manson all coming into the starting eleven.


The young Dons opened the scoring after ten minutes when Chris Antoniazzi curling in a left footed shot.

Midway through the first half, Michael Ruth ran onto a Kevin Hanratty pass before finishing with a low shot wide of Storrier to double the lead.

The same two players linked up again to make it three-nil with MichaelRuth curling in a superb left-footed shot high inside the post.

After setting up two goals, Kevin Hanratty got onto the scoresheet himself latching onto a quick through ball from Seb Ross before rounding Storrier to slot in the fourth.

Half-Time: Huntly 0 Aberdeen XI 4

On the hour mark, Kai Ross curled a dead ball up and over the visiting home only for goalkeeper Sam Jackson to save. Four minutes later, sub Nicholas Gray came close shooting by the post after a quick passing move.

There were still chances at either end late on, Ross Still headed wide from a Neale Davidson corner while minutes later, an acrobatic save from Craig Reid kept out a Kieran Shanks header.
