Huntly defender Mark Lawson has enjoyed a change of role off the park. The vice-captain has been helping out with the club’s under 17s development side. Having come to assist youth coach Chris Baird in recent games, the PE teacher was keen to help pass on his experience to the younger players.

“Through my teaching at work I’ve been doing my coaching badges. I had them previously but I went and redid some of them. It’s something I’ve looking to get involved in. there’s quite a few good young players coming through at the club. I want to help them out as much as I can, I’m one of the older players at the club and I’ve got a bit of experience, maybe not too much at Highland League level as I’m still new to some players but I have played a lot.”

With experienced coaches in Charlie Duncan and Charlie Ferries overseeing the youth setup at Christie Park, the 29 year old defender admits he is learning a lot.

“Charlie Duncan, I don’t know what else you can say about the man, he spent 25 years at one club which is an achievement, I’m looking to learn from them as later on, once I’ve finished playing I’d like to move into management and coaching and anything I can pick up from them is a bonus. He’s got so much knowledge of the game while I know Charlie Ferries too that’s helped and that’s a good experience for me to learn from two people who have had a large number of years in football between them.

Any Manager you play under from our last Manager Gregg Carrol to our current Co-Managers Mark Gray and Doug Baxter, you learn something different that can help you progress.”
