Our under 17s development side have been boosted by the support of two new kit sponsors this season.

 

The home kit is Sponsored by Huntly-based firm Sellars.

Sellars are a privately owned company selling agricultural machinery, parts and service. Their area of operations extends from the north of Scotland to the south of the Firth of Forth.

Their main franchises are Claas and Lemken. Sellars are also dealers for several other leading agricultural machinery manufacturers. 

The new home kit, which copies the same colours as the first team, was presented by Neil Wattie Managing Director of Sellars to Captain Keigan Mathers, flanked by Vice-Captain Harvey Taylor (left) and Coach Raymond Mathers (right).

Sponsoring the Away kit is NJFC.  NJFC represents Neil Irvine and his family, Neil is a retired local man who has always had a keen interest in football and how teams look to develop their youth players. After talking with Iain Ralston and what he hoped to achieve with his development squad, Neil was very keen to become involved and agreed to sponsor a new away kit, in addition to the nutrition in order that the players can start the recovery process immediately after a game. Neil is looking forward to being able to see the team develop in the seasons ahead.

The new away kit is pink and black and came top of a poll as voted on my youth players, coaches and officials. It was presented to Vice-Captain Harvey Taylor (right) and goalkeeper Sandy Watt (left) by Neil Irvine

Coach Iain Ralston was pleased to receive the backing from both companies

It's fantastic for the Club and the Under 17s to receive the support of these Individuals and their respective companies. Being able to gain two great sponsors for our Development squad lets the players know that Huntly FC is continuing to invest in its development programme to bring young players through our system. 

We have made a number of changes in our Under 17s programme and both sponsors were really engaged with how we intend to continue to develop our youth system in order to give the players the best opportunity to succeed and make the transition into senior football. 

Being able to gain the support from both Neil Wattie and Neil Irvine certainly helps demonstrate that we are moving in the right direction and that the Club is serious about investing in our youth players for the future and I hope they will both be involved in continuing to support our Development programme in the seasons ahead.”
