Huntly came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with Strathspey in a fixture which saw the home side give debuts to a number of new signings.


Kyle Dalling, Greg Buchan, Cameron Heslop and Angus Grant all started while Caiden Imbert-Thomas got his first taste of Highland League football from the bench. The visitors were playing their first competitive match under new Manager Charlie Brown and had former Huntly player Ashley Ballam missing through injury.

The hosts came close after a minute; Greg Buchan saw a free kick parried away by Robert Donaldson and Gavin Elphinstone was denied on the follow-up.

Strathspey opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark. A quick break down the left wing saw the ball worked inside to Kieran Chalmers and he drove in left-footed into the bottom corner from twenty yards.

Huntly nearly levelled in the 29th minute, a throw-in from Logan Johnstone picked out Glenn Murison. Murison made time and space for himself and his effort looked to be goalbound only for a superb save from Robert Donaldson to turn the ball round the post.

Debutant Angus Grant looked a constant threat and saw a shot roll wide of the post from an Elphinstone pass in the 38 th minute while in stoppage time he headed wide with another chance.

Half-Time: Huntly 0 Strathspey Thistle 1

Huntly drew level less than two minutes after the interval. Alexander Thoirs released Greg Buchan (left) inside the opposition box and he fired in from a tight angle to net on his debut.

Euan Storrier prevented Strathspey from regaining the lead blocking a Kris Duncan effort at his near post before the hour mark. Good work from Elphinstone minutes later saw him cross for former Turriff colleague Grant who shot wide on the volley

Robert Donaldson was in fine form in the visiting goal with another good save to keep out Reece McKeown in the 62nd minute after he had gone on a run, Angus Grant would see another chance kept out as he was denied following the rebound.

Grant was causing problems again this time chasing down a ball back to keeper Donaldson. Donaldson’s kick out went as far as Buchan who headed past.

With a minute remaining, a Stephen Rennie free kick picked out substitute Jordon Wardrope but the defender’s header was past the post.

Huntly nearly won the game in stoppage time, a long throw from Johnstone was sent into the area and Imbert-Thomas saw a shot blocked before Angus Grant fired wide on the rebound.
