Huntly have made a further addition to their squad with another local signing with the club.


The versatile Owen Murison who can play at full back or in midfield has signed a two year contract and follows in the footsteps of older brother Glenn in joining his local club.

The 20 year old who has featured for Huntly at youth development and Aberdeenshire League level was most recently with junior side Stoneywood-Parkvale and has signed on a two year contract. He will join Deveronside on loan for the season.

Speaking on his latest addition, Manager Allan Hale said: “Owen’s been training with us since we came into the club and I thought over the last year he’s showed up really well and he’s a player who’s adaptable in terms of different position. he’s got good stature and good use of the ball and the attitude and willingness to learn.

We’ve committed to give him a long term contract and I’m delighted to have him here and I’m sure he’s delighted to be here himself as being local to the area will mean a lot for him to sign for the club.

It’s important that youth players see there’s a pathway here and there’s a development process for them to get into the first team. It’s then up to the players to put in the work at their loan clubs.  Owen will go out on loan to Deveronside this season to get some valuable experience under a good coaching staff and that’ll hopefully set him up to come back with us next pre-season and hopefully integrate himself into the first team setup.”
