On behalf of Huntly Football Club I would like to offer a warm welcome to our supporters and to the visiting fans who have made the journey her today to support Iain Polworth and his Clachnacuddin team. Huntly and Clachnacuddin are both sitting on 10 points and I am certain that both managers will have their players fired up today looking to pick the three points and start climbing the table. As a result we look forward to a competitive and entertaining 90 minutes.

Gregg Carrol has seen a definite improvement in his side’s recent performances. The three-nil win away to Hawick Royal Albert in the first round of the Scottish Cup has earned us a home tie against East Stirlingshire in the second round here at Christie Park next Saturday (24th). We hope to see a big home crowd here for what should be an exciting cup tie.

That was followed by a fantastic 5-1 away win at local rivals Keith. The team also performed well against current League Champions Brora Rangers, going down 3-2 to a late goal.

We are particularly delighted to welcome our Ladies Day Mad Hatters Tea Party guest, all 50 of them. We are delighted that the event is sold out and our thanks go to Jacky Clark and her team for their efforts in making it a success. I have no doubt the ladies will bring a bit of welcome glamour to today’s proceedings.

Huntly FC hosted the Aberdeenshire Cup Final last Saturday when Fraserburgh defeated Inverurie Loco Works two-nil, the club was congratulated on being excellent hosts to both clubs and their officials. Our thanks must go to all the volunteers who helped the day run so smoothly and to Alix Turner for organising everything so efficiently.

Most of you will be aware that Steven Dolan has been appointed as the Deveronvale Manager. He was a very popular member of our team here at Christie Park. He leaves with all our best wished and we hope he can bring success as a Manager to the club he played at for many years.

We are delighted to welcome George McNeil our new board member to his first home game since taking up his position on the board. George is the Marketing Director of the retail department of Johnston’s of Elgin. He lives in Huntly as is a life-long football fan.

Finally I would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming Huntly Football Club Sportsman’s Lunch which is on Friday 30th at Pittodrie Stadium. The main speaker is John Hartson. The event is selling well but there are still table available. Anyone interested in taking a table can contact George Clark or myself.

Thank you for your ongoing support and enjoy the game.

Gordon Carter

Vice-Chairman

Huntly F.C. Add a New Face to The Board

Huntly F.C. today announced the appointment of a new member of the Board of Directors.
George McNeil, a resident of Huntly, takes up his post with immediate effect and club Chairman George Clark was delighted to welcome the new man to the club.

“We identified George as someone we thought would be a valuable addition to our team about a year ago and we have been in on-going discussions with him over that period. Due to his business commitments, on-going studies for an MBA and family requirements, he was unable to commit until now.

As well as being a smashing guy with a keen interest in football, he brings a wealth of experience in retail marketing and business generally which makes him an ideal candidate to strengthen our already excellent team and I am really looking forward to working with George going forward.”

Mr McNeil was born in Glasgow, and has had a long career in marketing working for Millets, then Puma, before arriving as Managing Director of the retail department of Johnston’s of Elgin, market leaders in the manufacturing of cashmere and fine woollens of knitwear and accessories.…

The club noted with regret the passing of former player Robert Bremner aged 95.
 
Mr Bremner, perhaps better known throughout the highland league as Bingo, played for Huntly for a few years just before the second world war and in fact had his football career interrupted when the war started.After the war finished he did continue playing locally ,but in local welfare leagues. After retiring as a player he concentrated on building the family business in Aberchirder, before returning to the game as a committee member at Deveronvale in the late 1980’s and then as president in the mid 1990’s.
 
Bingo was a well known and popular figure throughout the Highland League receiving a warm welcome wherever he went.
 
Huntly Chairman George Clark said “I had the privilege of getting to know Mr Bremner when i came to the club a couple of years back and he was a regular visitor to Christie park when his first love Deveronvale were away from home or didn't have a game and indeed was a generous supporter of Huntly FC events through his long time friend Billy Walker.
 
One of the last times i met him was when he sat beside me up at Forres and despite his advancing years had a keen insight into the game pointing out where we were going wrong.He was also a popular visitor in the Christie park board room, and i know many will miss his cheery smile and graciousness”.
 
The club has decided to hold a minutes silence at the game against Deveronvale a week on Saturday, given his relationship with both clubs.
