Huntly midfielder Ian Cruickshank enjoyed an impressive end to the 2015/16 season picking up three awards over the course of a weekend.

The 29 year old received Huntly’s Clubman award at the Highland League awards dinner and just one night later he was voted both the players and official’s player of the year.

Speaking after picking up a double at the second annual Marquee in the Park dance, he was pleased to cap off a fine individual season.

“It’s very nice to have these awards, I appreciate it although it would’ve been nice to finish a bit higher up the table but I’m pleased to have won three awards and hopefully I can build on that going into next season.

To get recognition from both players and officials at the club is great vote of confidence and it’s good to have those people backing me. I came runner-up for the player player’s player of the year last season to Blair Johnston, so it’s nice to go one better this time around.“

Cruickshank showed his versatility in the second half of the season playing in attack and the change of role paid off as he was able to weigh in with a number of goals and he was disappointed the season came to an end after hitting top form late on.

“I spoke to Doug Baxter in the last week of the season saying I wish it didn’t have to end, for me it was just kicking off. I was doing well and I would’ve been good to have gotten a run going but I’ll now have to pick up where I left off next season as soon as I get my suspension out of the play in the first game.”

After netting 8 goals in 32 games, the player finished runner up to David Booth for the second straight season for the top scorer award but he said he was able to have a laugh about with the player who departed for Turriff United in January.

“I was having a bit of banter with him, he was up front up until late January and I only had a few games in that position and I nearly caught up with him.”

With a change in management in early with Doug Baxter and Mark Gray taking over, Ian felt that things off the park have been good under the two former Huntly midfielders.

“There’s been a good about the place since Doug came in to join up with Mark and I think our performances in the last third of the season have shown that. There are positives to take out of the games in the latter half of the season and we now need to build on that to move up the table.”

With fellow midfielder Glenn Murison picking up two awards in his debut season Cruickshank feels there is a good mix of youth and experience coming through at the club just now.

“I think for this first season, Glenn has coped really well and the longer he stays in the team the more comfortable he’ll become in the Highland League and he will grow and improve as a player playing with experienced players. He did well to beat myself and Alexander Thoirs for one of his awards, who I must add has had a good season himself as he’s a quality player.”

Huntly midfielder Glenn Murison was pleased to cap off his debut season for the club after picking up two awards. The 18 year old was named young player and fans player of the year just over a year after making his Huntly debut.

Speaking after the awards presentation, the youngster said: “I’m really chuffed my team mates voted for me, I didn’t expect this but I’m happy about and the only thing to do now is build on it going into next season.

I’m happy I got the backing from the fans too, I found out I finished ahead of Alexander Thoirs and Ian Cruickshank to win that award and they're two experienced players I just want to keep proving myself now as I go into my second season.”

The schoolboy ended Fraser Hobday’s two year grip on the young player of the year award but at the same time he was pleased to see three locals all nominated for the award.

“Fraser Hobday did well to win the award two years in a row but it shows there is local talent in this area, Joe Burr and Lewis Ingram got the other votes but the three of us have played regular in the under 20s this past season and looking to the future we’ll hopefully play a lot more together in the first team for Huntly.”
