Huntly defender Michael Clark was disappointed his return to the starting eleven didn’t see his side take all three points after a freak Simon Allan goal denied the Strathbogie club all three points.

“We played well and had a lot of chances and missed some good opportunities when we were on top in the game. I thought the free kick they were awarded which led to the equaliser was a bit of a dubious decision and unfortunately for us it goes through our keeper Shaun Barney’s legs. We worked hard and enjoyed a good start to the season and hopefully we can carry that on.”

With a knee injury ruling out club captain Grant Campbell at present, Clark (18) was pitched in at right back at Mosset Park but he is keen to adapt his defensive role to get back into the side.

“I was unlucky to miss out at the start of the season but I worked hard and got back in and it was just a shame that it was Grant who was injured, we don’t know how bad it is or how long he’ll be out for but I’m going to take the chance and try to keep hold of the shirt. It’s good there’s competition for places in the centre of defence but I’m happy to play at full back if the Manager needs me there and I’m sure Sam McKenzie feels the same as he’s moved to left back but me and Sam are both young players who need to learn more than position to help benefit the team in the future.”

Despite going into his third season in the Highland League the apprentice green keeper is still one of the youngest in the squad but having an older head beside him in the back four does help the Insch based youngster through games.

“Michael Hart captained the side in Grant Campbell’s absence and we know what experience he brings to the squad and knows the game inside about out and he’s probably forgot more about the game than I know but having someone like that to talk you through and playing alongside you I can’t ask for anything more. He’s also got Craig Dorrat in beside him who reads the game well and he’s turning into a really good centre half and I don’t know if many forwards will get the better of him if he continues that form.”

Last season, Michael and his younger brother David, a current youth player featured in the same squad in a four-nil win at Lossiemouth and back in may the family link at the club grew when his father, George took up the reigns as Chairman.

“My Dad has always been an influence on my footballing career but I have been joking with him since he became Chairman and I told him I was here first.”
