There has been a lot of change at the club since my last article. Gregg has come in and is beginning to get to know us as players and vice versa. The first few performances against Locos, Wick and Nairn were positive with a lot of fight shown by the squad as a whole and we know that we are only a couple of players short from turning these performances into points. 

That said we let ourselves down on Wednesday night against a very energetic Clach side. Following the match we were left under no illusions that performances and results like that will not be tolerated. It is a great group of boys that we have at the club at the moment but it is clear that we all have to fight for each other and show that we are not only good enough to be a part of a successful Huntly side going forward but also that we want it enough as well. 

We welcome a couple of new players in and its great timing to give us a boost ahead of this cup tie. That’s the benefit of cup football, regardless of past performances and results this season, every team left in the draw are equal and four wins away from lifting the trophy. While Fraserburgh are a difficult side to play against we have beaten them in cup competition already this season and so the belief should be there.

There is certainly no better time to put in a quality performance and give ourselves a chance of progressing to the quarter finals. 

Enjoy the match
