Our under 20s went down to a defeat in their season opener losing 3-1 at home to Deveronvale.


The visitors took the lead in the 26 th minute when Nathan Stewart curled a low shot into the far post.

Vale doubled the lead in the 41 st minute with Harry Noble curling in direct from a free kick. Huntly reacted quickly and less than a minute later two of their Trialist’s opened up the visiting defence to score following the restart.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Deveronvale 2

Cory Ritchie and Glenn Murison came close with headed efforts while the woodwork denied Vale moments later as Nathan Stewart’s shot came back off the crossbar and into the arms of Keith Robertshaw.

Huntly were still looking for an equaliser and Cai Matthew’s low drive was kept out by the fingertips of keeper Andrew Dunbar before Glenn Murison headed off the bar from a Reece McKeown corner.

Deveronvale wrapped up the scoring with seven minutes remaining when substitute Max Stewart fired into the far post from a left-footed shot.
