I signed a new playing contract last week and it can be difficult at times doing a dual role as both a player and a coach. I’ve not been playing as much now and that was probably my first proper games since we faced Aberdeen in Russell Guild’s testimonial so with the exception of twenty minutes against Fraserburgh in the cup I’ve not played too much. I’m still training with the rest of the team twice a week and do my own thing to keep myself fit but you can’t beat having match fitness.

We changed to a 3-5-2 system last week and you need to have certain players to play in that formation and it didn’t work so we changed to 4-4-2 when Russell Guild picked up a knock and once we changed the wide players looked more comfortable with two full backs sat behind them and we were able to push Neale and Petr further up the par to put more pressure on Fort William. You’ve got to try different things and we weren’t being disrespectful trying against Fort William but there is going to games where we might have to play a back three but we learnt a lesson and will have to move on.…

We start the season today against Cove Rangers who will be getting awarded their championship flag but I don’t think the pressure will be on them. They’re champions and we’ll give them the respect they deserve and it’ll be a tough game but we’ll be ready for it.

I thought the last game we played at Allan Park back in April was a great performance as a team and Connor Scully’s 25 yard strike was the big difference and it gave Richard Bowman no chance and we deserved at least a draw that night. Cove are a really good side and the first game of the season is always going to be hard and it’s a game we look forward to.…

Saturday is such a big game for us and with that in mind I chose to rest Russell Guild for Wednesday night’s friendly with Falkirk. Had he played and picked up a knock I don’t think I’d not have been able to sleep for the rest of the week if god forbid something happened knowing how much work his testimonial committee and other have done behind the scenes so it made sense not to risk him.

You could see against Falkirk even missing his presence in midfield, no disrespect to the players who came who looked a poorer side without him.…

Good afternoon and welcome to Nairn Fc for what is the final fixture of the season.
Such is the Highland League that yet again the title is going down to the wire with the clash between Formartine and Cove in Pitmedden.

As I have stated on a number of occasions teams in this League can be beaten on any given day and it wasn't a shock to me that Nairn turned Formartine over last weekend to set up a final day showdown.

However, I only wish Huntly were involved in a high profile game like this, and that is what we are striving to achieve It's not something that happens overnight unless you are a cash rich club or have longevity in building the foundations to get there.
Huntly are a wee bit away in some regards but that doesn't mean we can't get great results as we have had this season. Where we lack is in depth and experience but young kids can only get this from game time on the park and this season has seen a few who are in their second season struggle with consistency. I am sure they will benefit in the long term but next season must see an improved level from a number of these lads.
I feel we started the season with real promise and looked likely to gain at least a top six spot however after losing three key players around the same time had a significant impact on results, big Lukasz , Somers and Davie Booth all being out or leaving left us short on quality. Again had they all stayed and been fit added with Michael Hart then we certainly would have been in a far greater position.…

A warm welcome to Davie Kirkwood and his Brora team along with all their officials for today’s Highland League game.

This will no doubt be another game where we will have to work hard and stay focused to get anything out of the 90 minutes.…
