Huntly have this afternoon finalised the signing of veteran defender Simon Scott for a fourth time on a one and half year deal.

 

Simon started his Highland League career off at Christie Park as a left winger under Doug Rougvie winning two championships before departing to Formartine United, then a junior side. He returned to the club in the summer of 2003 and was a key part of the side which clinched the league title in 2004/05. He would move on in 2006 with spells at Peterhead (loan) and Ellon United before ending up at Inverurie Loco Works but the appointment of Dave McGinlay as Manager in December 2007 saw a quick return to the club before he was sold back to Locos in 2010 by John Teasdale.

 

The 36 year old was put up for sale this week by Inverurie Loco Works and after stating in a post-match interview following Saturday’s defeat to Formartine United, Manager Dave McGinlay moved quickly to secure the signature of his former championship winning team mate.

 

“After Saturday’s game I went on record we were looking for experience to bring to the squad and just days later the news was announced that Simon was put up for sale by Locos so we moved quickly to deal with them and get everything done. I felt that since the club let him go in 2010 we’ve not had a natural left back.

 

We’ve been going with a really young defence this season and getting an older head in beside the existing players will give us a boost and guide them forward alongside the captain Grant Campbell and vice-captain Adam Naismith who are only in their early twenties themselves.

 

We know how he plays and I know what he can bring to the team both on the pitch and in the dressing room. I was about the same age when I returned to the club as a player back in 2004 at a time when we had a young defence and I’m hoping that Simon can now do a similar role. We’ve got him for a year and half and you never know it could be longer than that.”
