When Huntly officials turned up at Christie Park on Saturday morning they were confronted by a very wintery scene of a snow covered pitch.

Few expected there to be any chance of their Highland League cup tie against Fraserburgh being on, but after a referee inspection at 10 am were advised if the snow could be cleared then it was playable.That’s when the real work began. A team were soon assembled from across the community as well as Huntly FC officials and volunteers and snow clearing commenced.

After 3 hours of back breaking work, the pitch was clear and the tie proceeded which Huntly won 2–1 to the delight of a big crowd.

Chairman George Clark was full of praise for the group. ”Since i arrived at the club it has never ceased to amaze me the level of commitment there is at the club and the community as a whole towards football in the town, but this has surpassed everything. The Fraserburgh officials were astounded at the effort and could not have been more full in their praise of all involved. I may also say that our Managers Andy and Tommy were quite taken aback by the effort that had gone in, and if they were ever in doubt about the commitment of the community towards the club, they are in no doubt now. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who came along and helped on the day Your efforts are much appreciated and i am delighted the team on the park responded by showing the same commitment.”
