Firstly, may I say what a privilege it is to be connected with Huntly FC.

It has been obvious when looking from the outside, in, that the Chairman and Committee have been making good progress in the last few years and that has been borne out of this seasons results.…

Tomorrow’s game against Banks o’ Dee is a big tie for us coming in the Scottish Cup. It’s on an artificial pitch which for us will be a different game from what we’re used to in the Highland League. A Scottish Cup tie can be a nervy affair and I don’t think playing on astroturf will help that, the ball moves a lot quicker and it can bounce more. We always like to play good football and we’ve got talent in this side that should be able to help us through.

We’ll have to play better than we did against Clach. The first half we did ok but it was more the second half performance which disappointed me. At this point it’s unsure if Kieran Adams and Blair Johnston will have made a full recovery in time for the game but they’ll have been assessed in training and fingers crossed we can get as much players back as we can.…

Today is going to be a big game against the league leaders Buckie Thistle but we’ve proved before against the likes of Formartine and Brora we can compete again them and it doesn’t faze us and we welcome the challenge and will look forward to the game.

Looking at the quality they’ve got and the quality we’ve got I see no reason why we can’t go on any win the game.

After missing four games recently due to being cup-tied then suspended we’ll now have Kieran Adams returning to the squad so he’ll be back in contention so we’ll see how he’s feeling at training and take a decision.

It’s good to have a number of good defensive options but it’s not just in defence its right throughout the team where we’ve got competition for places.
Gary McGowan missed the win over Fort William last week while Dennis Wyness and Robbie Duncanson can also play further upfield and we’ve also got Elliot Duff who was on the bench last week who can also score goals and the same goes for Alex Thoirs whose also been missing that can come in. there’s a number of players there and we know that one day everything is going to click and somebody’s going to feel our wrath.

On the injury front we are hoping that Paul Napier has recovered from his recent injury spell, he’s a player who knows a lot about today’s opponent and depending how he’s done at training he could make the squad.
