Game on thanks to Volunteers

When Huntly officials turned up at Christie Park on Saturday morning they were confronted by a very wintery scene of a snow covered pitch.

Few expected there to be any chance of their Highland League cup tie against Fraserburgh being on, but after a referee inspection at 10 am were advised if the snow could be cleared then it was playable.That’s when the real work began. A team were soon assembled from across the community as well as Huntly FC officials and volunteers and snow clearing commenced.…

I can confirm that Sandy Morris has decided to step down from his position on the board of directors.

In his note to me he has cited family and business reasons, but has confirmed that he will continue to support the club in anyway he can.…

A warm welcome to all our supporters to the start of another Highland league season.

Each new season always starts with renewed optimism but I think this one in particular is one to look forward to as a club.

Since I became involved in the club the main focus has been to get the business model right which has to some extent meant the playing side has had to suffer. However with the financial structure of the club now on a positive basis, we have been in a position to release funds to our management team to strengthen the squad and it is fair to say they have been very busy over the summer!!

I am particularly delighted that as well as the experienced players that have been added, we continue our work on youth development, signing another four youngsters who will be stars of the future.

I welcome all the new recruits and know that you will give them a great reception to help them settle in.

I would also welcome today's visitors Rothes FC and their chairman Iain Paul in particular. Iain and his team have been working very hard to stabilise this great club and I wish them every success.

Off the park we have our Golf day coming up on 26th August, so if you fancy putting in a team, contact us and we will be delighted to welcome you along.

Finally it only leaves me to thank you once again for your continued support and hope the new season brings you everything you are hoping for.

A warm welcome to you all to today’s match and a special warm welcome to our friends from Fort William.  Due to weather interference, we now play Fort William in back to back Saturday’s and I am sure a couple of good competitive games lie before us as well as the always pleasurable trip to enjoy the fantastic hospitality of today’s guests.

Whilst we still have two games left to play away to Clach and Fort William, today marks the end of the home season and it has certainly been a challenging one for us, at least from an on the park perspective.  There have been many changes in the course of the season both in Management and playing personnel and perhaps the lack of stability has worked against us. However, I do like to reflect that in the last 6-8 weeks we have started to see some progress on the park with one or two better results and hopefully that is a sign of things to come.

I think the one bright light in the whole season has been the progress of our youth development structure and the progress of three of our youth team players into the first team. Our very young under 17 team has done very well in its development league and the management team there have identified 5 or 6 players who have a real potential to break through into the under 20’s and indeed first team in the not too distant future.  I would like to take this opportunity just to thank Charlie Ferries, Charlie Duncan and Chris Baird for all their work during the course of the year and helping to continue to develop our young players into potential first team players.

Off the park, our Commercial Team continue to work tremendously hard with some excellent sponsorship and commercial deals concluded as well as continuing to make our corporate hospitality packages on a Saturday highly marketable and a very beneficial source of income for the Club.  Today we have almost 150 in our corporate hospitality which is remarkable and I would think unique throughout the entire Highland League.  Pride of place is celebrity guest for today John Henderson, professional darts player, and he and a group of friends are celebrating his forthcoming wedding.  I take this opportunity to wish John all the very best on that front and of course his continued highly successful career on the professional darts circuit.

It only leaves me now to thank you all very much for all the support during the season both at the ground and of our commercial activities.  I do look forward to seeing you again next season or indeed at any of our events in the close season, helping to raise funds for the Club.  I hope you have an enjoyable final home game afternoon with us and look forward to seeing you again next season.”

A happy new year to one and all and a warm welcome to all our friends from Keith for our first fixture of 2016.

The year past has not been the most successful for the club on the park and here's hoping the New Year will usher in a more enjoyable period for you, the spectators and all connected with the club. However not all was bad in 2015, with continued success off the park for the club financially and some very promising progress in our youth development program. I had always hoped we would start to see some signs of youngsters coming through and indeed we saw Glenn Murison make the breakthrough at the tail end of the year. We also have one or two others in our under 20's and 17's who are not that far away and will soon be giving our management team some selection headaches.

My hope for 2016 is that the club continues to thrive financially which will allow us to provide the managers with the resources needed to move the team forward and up the league. To do that we must maintain our fundraising and commercial efforts and I look forward to receiving you, the supporters, support with upcoming events. Without that support to date we would not have been able to stabilise the club the way we have and I greatly appreciate all your efforts.

A game against Keith is always a difficult one and we have enjoyed a number of close games with them over recent years, so this will undoubtedly be another high energy keenly contested match.

It only leaves me to wish you an enjoyable afternoon with us and thank you once again for your support.

George Clark
Chairman.
