One week after Kai Ross signed a new contract, Huntly have received a further signing boost with one of their loan signings making his deal a permanent one.

 

Midfielder Liam MacDonald has today completed a permanent transfer from League One side Peterhead on a 2 ½ year contract.

MacDonald (20) has become an important part of the side is pleased to sign for the club after two previous loan spells.

“I’m delighted to get the deal done, Martin (Skinner) spoke with me a couple of weeks ago and we’ve been in talks since. I’ve really enjoyed my time since I came on loan. I’d struggled with injures during loans elsewhere and I’m now getting regular games. I’ve played League Two football and coming back to the Highland League this is a tough level to play and it’s more physical

I’m playing in a role I like in front of the defence and I’ve got to take my hat off to Martin for playing me in there with Ross Still and Glenn Murison. The players were very welcoming to me when I came back on loan. We have a good relationship off the pitch, and it’s easy to transfer that onto the pitch too.”

With a relatively young squad, MacDonald sees a lot of potential in the current team.

“There’s a few boys on loan and this is a young squad and if everyone gets signed up, we’ve got a really good chance of pushing up the league over the next couple of years and even getting to a cup final.”

Having worked with Liam for two loan spells, Manager Martin Skinner is delighted to get someone he sees a key player signed permanently

“Liam is a key player for us especially with the shape and the way we’re trying to play. it was clear to see we missed against Lossiemouth this past Saturday as he wasn’t fully fit. I think when Liam, Glenn and Ross are on form we’ve three of the best central midfielders in the league on their day. Liam gives us that bit of assurance in midfield and he’s well-liked within the squad.

He’s going to get the games he wants at this age and it’s a really good signing for us and you’ve got to back the board for helping us to get these players in”.

Skinner has seen the improvement in MacDonald’s performances and feels his work rate allows others to shine around him.

“We didn’t have him here for too long when he first came on loan with Ryan McRitchie but I really liked him as a player and I was pleased to get him back on loan again in July

He puts his body on the line and has played through the pain barrier recently. He puts in a lot of tackles, wins headers and it allows players in front of him to join in and create goals knowing they’ve got Liam behind them.”

Club Chairman Gordon Carter has been impressed with the impact from the midfielder since returning to the club on loan.

“We are delighted to get Liam’s transfer from Peterhead completed. He has made an impact this season with his performances. He is a young and talented lad who is improving all the while with his increased game time. I would like to thank Peterhead for their cooperation both with regards to the loan deal and now with his transfer.”
