With a number of player signings ahead of the 2015/16 there has been further changes off the pitch with new additions to the Huntly coaching staff.

 

Former Fraserburgh Manager Charlie Duncan has been helping out Manager Gregg Carrol and his assistant Mark Gray and Steven Dolan during pre-season.

Duncan, left The Broch in 2011 after a 27 year spell as Manager during which he guided the Bellslea Park club to the Highland League title, Highland League Cup and both the Aberdeenshire Cup and Shield.

After his lengthy association with Fraserburgh ended he moved to Peterhead where he currently works with the club’s youth development.

The 66 year old will continue his role at Peterhead and link up with Huntly’s first team on a part-time basis while working with the club’s Under 20s in the Aberdeenshire League and the SHFL under 17s development side.

Joining Charlie in working with the Under 20s and under 17s is a man who has had previous links with the Strathbogie club.

Former Huntly player Charlie Ferries was previously brought to Huntly back in 2006/07 under Dave Cormie to working with the Aberdeenshire League side prior to moving to Colony Park as Manager in 2011 upon the Inverurie-based club’s promotion to the junior ranks. Most recently the 58 year old has been involved behind the scenes at Colony Park off the field as Director of Football.

Speaking on the appointment, Huntly Manager Gregg Carrol said:

“Charlie Duncan and Charlie Ferries have come in to help the youngsters coming through and provide a link from the under 17s and 20s to the first team. The club is now set up the way we want it from top to bottom now with the youth setup and the first team and that’ll be good for the club.

 

Charlie Duncan is vastly experienced, I know him personally and he’s fantastic guy but his knowledge of the game is second to none and to have him commit himself to Huntly Football Club along with Charlie Ferries, an old Huntly legend is good for the club. It’s good for me too as I can bounce things off them, Mark Gray and Steve Dolan are good lads but when you get these two older guys involved they add even more experience and they’d put me in my place.

 

Both of them know how to spot a player and that’s where this club needs to go. we haven’t got vast amounts of money, they made some available to me this year but at the same time we need to repay it to the club and the only way we can do that is by getting young players into the club helped by the quality of coaching.”
