Huntly have continued getting players to commit themselves to the club with another three players finalising contract extensions this morning.

Goalkeeper Andrew Pennycook and winger Adam McNamee have two year extensions until 2018 while defender Mark Lawson has extended his stay at the club with a one year deal which keeps him at Christie Park until 2017.

Speaking on getting the trio re-signed, Co-Manager Doug Baxter said: “Getting another three players signed up again is pleasing it gives us the continuity everyone is looking for.

We know what we’ve got in the squad at present and we’re now getting the current squad signed up and we’d look forward to adding more to it between now and the end of the season.

We didn’t have to sell ourselves, these players are happy at Huntly and they were just keen to see a new management team appointed and Mark Gray and I are delighted to have had eight players commit themselves to the club recently.”

Mark LawsonMark Lawson (29) returned to the side in Saturday’s 6-2 defeat to Keith and was keen to be part of the new management team’s rebuilding process.

“That’s another year for me; I want to be part of things here. Doug Baxter’s come in with Mark (Gray) and hopefully we can move on to better things in the future. We all want to improve going into next season and take the club in the right direction.

I know there’s a lot of competition for places, we’ve four players who can play centre half and there are different options for different formations so that can only be helpful for the team.”

adammcnameeAfter penning a new 2 year deal, winger Adam McNamee (24) is now looking to force his way back into a starting place.

“There’s been a lot of changes recently on and off the pitch, but I’m looking to get some more game time myself now after coming off the bench in the last couple of games.

We’ve made two signings recently and I’m sure we’d be looking to get some more in and start getting some wins together.”

andrewpennycookGoalkeeper Andrew Pennycook (29) initially came to the club on a one year contract back in August and is looking to continue his comeback after breaking his arm in only his second league start for the club.

“It’s good to get a bit of security and know where I’m going for the next couple of years. I know Fraser Hobday signed a long term contract too so it’ll be good competition between us and with a  new Manager coming in it’ll be a chance for me to established myself.

It was hard to me getting in the team when Fraser was suspended and then getting injured soon after and I’m glad to be back pushing Fraser again.”

The last outing for the giant shot-stopper was in a one-nil defeat to Nairn County in early November and he admitted that the timing of the injury was unfortunate.

“I played the last ten minutes of that game with a broken arm and didn’t realise there was something wrong until I was working at school the day after. I was playing well around that time; I’d started in the Scottish Cup win against East Stirlingshire. I know I’m not quite on hundred percent but I’m determined to push on and fight for a place in goal.”
