Huntly have been handed a signing boost with one of their loan signings making his move to Christie Park a permanent one.

 

Goalkeeper Euan Storrier has finalised a transfer from Forres Mechanics on a three year contract.

After two seasons on loan, the former Rothes and Elgin City player who has made 58 squad appearances is pleased to sign permanently.

He said: “It’s been a move which has been in the pipeline for a while now and I’m delighted to get things done and it’s good to be back playing again.

When I came in last season on loan that was probably the best season I’ve had in terms of performances and winning two player of the year trophies and I’m looking to get back to that level going into next season and have a couple of successful years here”.

Having recently turned 21, Storrier admits the current squad is full of potential.

He added: “Myself and the players in front of me are still quite young and we’re building a side for over the next few years to be challenging and I’m looking forward to it.”

Having seen the player win two player of the year trophies in his first season, Manager Martin Skinner was keen to see Euan continue that form.

He said: “I’m delighted to finally get Euan signed up, Euan has played a lot of games for us in the last couple of seasons and you can see the talent is there at such a young age.

He picked up two of the main awards last year and is very well liked within the squad so I can only see it as a massive positive for all involved. I’m Looking forward to seeing Euan kick on over the next few seasons”.

Club Chairman Gordon Carter was equally pleased to see another promising youngster sign with the club.

He said: “We are delighted to have signed Euan on a long term deal. He is a talented young goalkeeper who is only going to improve, particularly now that he will train with his teammates on a regular basis. I would like to thank Forres Mechanics for the manner that they conducted negotiations between the two clubs.”
