Huntly are set to promote four players from their youth development into the first team squad for 2019/20.

Forward Cameron Chyla (16), Defender Paul Davidson (16) and midfielders Murray Nicol and Ross Gill (both 17) have all agreed one year contracts after impressing in the under 17s team.

As the youngest Manager in the Highland League, Martin Skinner admitted he’s not afraid to give youngsters a chance to step up.

“It’s important that the young players believe age is just a number, I’ve proved that myself and we’ve got four good players there. we’re looking forward to seeing them over pre-season and in the under 20s this coming season. the four of them did well for the under 17s and I feel they’re capable of more.

There’s some local lads signing on too with Cameron and Murray both from Huntly.”

Sixteen year old forward Cameron Chyla had impressed in the under 17s last season and his performances saw him get a call up for the first team squad where he was listed as an unused substitute on four occasions. Skinner admitted if things had gone differently, he would’ve made his debut.

“I said to him he’s a bit unfortunate not to get on when he was called up, if games panned out a different way he would’ve. I had planned to give him his chance in the last game of the season against Wick Academy we lost key players to injury inside the first half so that changes my plans early.

He’s been around the dressing room recently and seen the good and bad side and he knows what he’s coming into and I’m sure he’ll let the other lads know what to expect.”

Defender Paul Davidson was a regular in the under 17s last season and like Chyla also received a call-up to the under 20s. As a former defender, Skinner sees a lot of potential in the former Colony Park juvenile.

“I know his dad (Stewart) well who is a good coach, so hopefully he’s helping him in the background as well, he’s another who got a chance in the under 20s last season so he understood the step wasn’t that big coming from under 17s. we want boys who are willing to play, do the right things and we’ve got players who can progress.”

The Manager was pleased to add Midfield duo Murray Nicol and Ross Gill (from Cairnie and Keith respectively) after much praise from youth coach Iain Ralston.

“I’ve spoken with Iain after under 17s games and he always mentioned those two as stand-outs and they’ve applied themselves really well so hopefully they can prove what people think of them with this step up.”
