While there have been a number of changes off the pitch at Huntly, there has been a significant change on the pitch with Michael Clark named the new team captain.

The appointment came after the arrival of the club’s new management team and the Insch-based defender was delighted with the new role.

He said: “I had the armband for a few games under the old management while others were out and when Charlie Charlesworth came in he gave me it permanently. I’m delighted with that, Huntly’s my club, although I’ve been away twice I’ve still featured for the last seven seasons it still means a lot to me and I want to be here. There are still some experienced players in the squad I can learn from and that can help take the pressure off myself and others in the team too.”

While he’s only turned 23 year, Clark has turned out 166 times for his local club and noted the example set by a former Huntly captain is one he wishes to emulate.

“Grant Campbell is a good example of what you look for in a captain, he was a great leader here both on and off the pitch. When I was 16 starting out he got the captaincy at a similar age I am just now but I certainly want to set the same example Grant did during his time here.”

Huntly’s last outing saw Huntly suffer their heaviest defeat of the season when they went down seven-nil at Fraserburgh as Michael admitted the two red cards changed the momentum of the game.

“Up until the red cards it quite an even contest, we had one just before half-time but getting a second at one-nil it just game over at that point as they scored right after and scored six goals within a twenty minute spell.

The second half was more about damage limitation for us and it was important we tried to hold on and keep the scoreline down.”
