Huntly have this afternoon strengthened their attacking options ahead of the 2017/18 as Co-Managers Andy Roddie and Tommy Wilson make their first summer signing of 2017.

 

The black and gold’s have today completed the signing of Lossiemouth forward Martin Charlesworth who leaves the Coasters after one full season.

The 29 year old stated he was sold on a move to Christie Park after one meeting with the management team.

He said: “Tommy Wilson had spoken highly of me and when you have a manager who rates you and wants to bring you to his club it’s an easy decision to make.  There are a lot of good players on the books at Huntly in all positions and the opportunity to come and play with some really good players in particular a number of attacking options it was hard not to turn down. I’d like to add my style to the squad and help them move up the table.”

After moving to Grant Park last summer under his father Charlie, he admitted it was hard to leave the club.

“It was hard to leave, I did sign there thinking there was a plan in place to help Lossie progress up the table. They’ve done extremely well this past year on the limited budget they were on and finishing mid-table but things had fallen a bit flat after some changes of the pitch and some players leaving but I couldn’t say no to this opportunity at Huntly.”

Charlesworth who has joined on a two year contract started his Highland League career in 2008 with Buckie Thistle where he won two league titles before moving onto Deveronvale in 2012 where he spent four year before joining Lossie in April 2016.

Looking forward to a fresh challenge, Martin is out to impress his new supporters.

“I always look to improve, I play the game and look to set up people around me back to goal and link up with others around me. It’s not just about scoring goals, you want to give the team an outlet to create chance and I hope to do that here. I’m looking forward to linking up with my old Buckie team mate Paul Napier and I know a few of the guys who signed from Nairn last summer and have a lot of mutual respect for others from playing against them.”

Difficult to assess. Signing best judged in context of other recruitments.

Disappointed (but not surprised) to see Sean & Robbie go. Both had good seasons and I feel would have been starters in the season ahead.

Maybe the club will sign superior replacements.

Didn't work for Adam this time round.
