Huntly did the double over Strathspey Thistle for the first time in four seasons with a comfortable 5-1 win.

Recently appointed Manager Charlie Charlesworth was not involved in the game but watched on from the stand instead. Gary McGowan and Ross Still were both suspended and Alexander Thoirs offshore as Martin Charlesworth took charge in his first game as Player-Coach.

Huntly opened the scoring after sixteen minutes with a slick passing move finished off with by David Donald who made it two in two games with a powerful drive.

The Jags came close to levelling in the 24th minute when David Ross slotted a shot past the advancing Craig Reid but Huntly Captain Michael Clark made a timely goal-line clearance to keep out the equaliser.

A through ball from Calvin Roddie in the 25th minute picked out veteran Dennis Wyness and he was able to take a touch before slotting in at the near post.

The black and gold’s extended their lead eight minutes later when David Donald got forward down right wing and cut the ball back from the by-line for Dennis Wyness to net with a first time finish high inside the post.

Eight minutes from the break, Michael Ewen showed great determination to get away from two Jags defenders before finishing with a superb shot high into the net.

Half-Time: Huntly 4 Strathspey Thistle 0

A well-worked free kick produced a fifth for the hosts with only six minutes of the second half hone. Paul Napier floated in a free kick to the back post and his delivery was headed back across goal by Donald for Ewen to bundle in from close range for his tenth of the season.

The visitors had a further chance before the hour mark when James Fraser held off his marker before shooting wide of the post. At the other end, Dennis Wyness was denied his first hat-trick for the club when Michael MacCallum turned the forward’s shot round the post.

Glenn Murison had put in a solid performance in the back four but he proved to be dangerous at the opposite end of the pitch when MacCallum turned the teenager’s header round the post after he met a Paul Napier corner.

Strathspey pulled grabbed a consolation in the 73rd minute. James Fraser sent a free kick into a packed goalmouth and Nicholas Mochan rose at the back post to net with a downward header.

Calvin Roddie put in one of his best performances in a Huntly shirt and almost capped it off with a goal only to be denied a timely block from the in-form MacCallum.
