Huntly’s David Booth was on target in Saturday’s impressive win away to Formartine United. After netting his side’s opener the forward was happy to see his side end a run of six straight defeats.


“I thought we started off well and maybe lost it a bit in the first half but I think the sending-off they received had a big impact on the game and we had a lot more chances and it could’ve probably been a bigger win in the end. I was guilty of a few misses as were some other players but we’ve obviously got the three points which is the main thing as we’ve been desperate for a win lately in the last few weeks.”


Netting only two minutes into the fixture, the Alford-based player who spent time at North Lodge Park in the juniors admitted the early goal shocked the hosts.


“They probably just thought they’d just have to turn up and get a result which to be fair most teams have as we have been on a bad run of form at times but against Formartine we made a lot less mistakes than we have compared to previous weeks and when you do that you gives yourselves a chance.”


Huntly’s lead was cut short after United went ahead with two goals in a four minute spell but the 28 year old accountant was pleased that they were able to bounce back from the early setback.


“We’ve made a lot of mistakes and cut our own throat at times this season and normally when we get a goal the lead doesn’t seem to last long but once we got the third we managed to hang on with a man advantage. The win will obviously help the confidence in the squad.”


In his first season back in 2011/12 he finished as the club’s top scorer. The following two seasons he finished behind Andrzej Kleczkowski but after notching his eighth of the season he admitted he’s looking over his shoulder as he looks to pick up that honour again.


“It’ll be the lowest tally for our top scorer for a while, myself and Ian are both on eight goals now but credit to him he’s done really well lately and has come up with goals and he’ll be looking to keep that form up.”


Having been paired with a number of different strike partners this season David has been impressed since Neale Davidson was moved up to partner him over the past month.


“Neale’s a player I’ve played with now for a few seasons, he came to the club at the same time in returned and he’s been one of the best players at the club during that time. Previously when he’s played on the left we’ve linked up well and it’s easy enough for me to play with him further forward as he’s got lost of pace which hurts defenders and he can take a chance as well. We’re not the biggest or strongest pairing so we’ve got to try and run the defenders and create movement to get others into the game. You could see with Neale’s movement dropping off to set up the third for Ian Cruickshank, who seems to be the master of the third man run as it’s where most of his goals have come from.”


With another home game coming up this Saturday with a Deveronvale who have conceded fifteen goals over their last three games, Booth feels it’s a great chance for his team to record their first back-to-back wins since he netted the winner in a 2-1 win over Keith back in January 2014.


“We haven’t been winning games lately so the win over Formartine hopefully gives us confidence into what is a big game for us. We don’t want to be at the bottom of the league and it’s important we finish as high up the table as we can.”
