Huntly FC have today confirmed their management team have signed new two year deals to extend their stay at the club.

 

The move comes just over one year on from Gregg Carrol taking over the managerial position at Christie Park with Steven Dolan and Mark Gray coming in to assist him.

 

Speaking on securing the trio on new contracts, Chairman George Clark said: “I am delighted Gregg, Mark and Steve have agreed to extend their contracts and continue with the rebuilding of the team. All three have worked extremely hard to bring in new players within our stringent financial budgets and whilst the results have not been everything they had hoped for, I genuinely believe we are not far away from having a competitive team on the park. On a personal note I must also say that all three are very committed and supportive of the club off the park and are a real pleasure to work with.”

 

Former Deveronvale and Buckie Thistle Manager Gregg Carrol was appointed on February 9th of last year and one year on the four time title winning manager is looking to continue the rebuilding job.

 

He said: “When we came to Huntly last year it was important we had an idea of what we had to do.

We knew there wasn’t a lot of money to spend on players which was fine but we needed to do some wheeling and dealing which we’ve done with a number of additions to the playing squad and I’m still confident we’ve got good players at the club who although are making fundamental mistakes in games still need to learn from it.”

 

Steven Dolan who played under Gregg at Deveronvale admitted it he is committed to the job in hand despite recent results.

 

“We knew when we came in it wasn’t going to be a straight-forward job and it’s been harder than we thought but I’m quite a loyal person, I was with Deveronvale for many years as a player and I’m not one to walk away.

It’s something we have to face head on and take the criticism when it comes our way and are looking to make this club better. To get a new contract is much appreciated and we are seeing changes through the club at board and playing level but we’ve picked up some decent players and know we’ve to add to it and that’ll continue going forward.”

 

Long serving player Mark Gray knows how big a task it is having to build up a new squad when he was in the situation as a player returning in 2003

 

Gray said: “It’s great from the club, there’s still a lot of work to do building it back to where it was. I’ve been back here for nearly twelve years now but you can see the difference in clubs at this level now compared to when I came back that there’s more competition for players and it’s a hard competition to get the best pool of players when you’ve other Aberdeenshire clubs looking to strengthen. It’s good working with Steve too, I didn’t know him before he came here but we’ve both been about the Highland League and we’re both keen to go out and watch other teams to help Gregg identify players.”
