It’s been a busy few days off the pitch at Huntly with one departing, two coming in and another one now on the way out.

Michael Ewen left the club to Turriff United on Wednesday while a day later Jordan Timmons and Graham Stark signed after being released from Dundee.

Now two days after Ewen’s departure, fellow Keith-based player Craig Dorrat will be joining him at the Haughs for next season.

 

Dorrat debuted for the club from the youth ranks under Dave Cormie back in 2006/07 scoring in his first game away to Rothes in December 2006 before being farmed out to junior side Islavale. Cormie signed the player up for the first team the following summer but it wasn’t until after Dave McGinlay took charge he got his first start which was against Dundee at a packed Christie Park in the Scottish Cup fourth round. The 21 year old made 90 squad appearances scoring 14 times.

Craig is a player who has attracted the attention of Turriff for a few months now. The paperwork is due to completed today and their Assistant Manager Brian Thomson is delighted with their new acquisition.

“Myself and Kris Hunter are absolutely delighted to have gotten Craig signed up. We actually spoke with him three weeks ago and made him the player we wanted as Kris and I both think he’s a fantastic player and could do a great job for Turriff. We went in for Michael Ewen and the same time and it’s brilliant for us to get players of that quality.
When we spoke to both Craig and Michael it didn’t take much persuasion to make them move”

For a young lad, Dorrat has featured at left back, left wing and up front during his time at Huntly but Thomson knows exactly where the player will fit into his new club.

“He’s only 21 but we will be playing him in his natural position on the left wing. We’ve plenty of quality strikers at the club and Craig’s very good at getting forward supporting the forward line and making chances for the players up front.

Our team’s relatively young with an age bracket of around 21 to 24. He’ll fit in well at the club and the same goes for Michael Ewen. That’s three players we have now that come from Keith in that pair with Kevin Collins included, to be fair he is that little bit older than that two but he bring experience and they all know each other well so it’ll be easy for the two new players to settle in.”

Black and gold’s boss John Teasdale praised Dorrat for his attitude and commitment during his two months working with him.

“Like Michael Ewen, we think it would be a good move for Craig who needs a regular game. He’s a nice lad and well-liked by everyone connected with Huntly Football Club and although he’s only played about half a dozen times since I came in he’s done so with a good attitude and was committed.”
