DSC 0267 Dorrat GoalHuntly new boy James Duguid admitted it was mixed emotions on his debut after he netted a consolation in their 5-1 opening day defeat to Turriff United.

“First and foremost we were looking for three points; I’m delighted to get off the mark. It was good to get a goal in the friendly against Aberdeen University a few days before to take a bit of pressure off. The win didn’t happen and we’ll now move onto the next game and focus on Cove.”

Since coming in during pre-season game, Duguid has been playing in behind centre forward Dean Donaldson in a role he admitted he’s comfortable with.

“It probably one of my favourite roles to be honest, I played there at Maud just playing off the main forward floating in between the midfield and attack trying to pick up loose balls trying to play in wingers when I can. The players you can see are trying to get used to the new system as it’s obviously a bit different from last season. I think when it starts gelling and when everyone starts buying into it then it’ll come good. We’re definitely creating chances but we just need to improve in getting bodies into the box when we’re pushing upfield. Players like Dorrat and Adam are getting in from the wide areas while myself and Deano are forming a good partnership while when Boother comes back that’ll add to the attacking options.”

Going into his home debut against Cove Rangers the 23 year old is looking forward to go up against another of last season’s top three.

“It’ll be a tough challenge, they got off to a flyer last week against Buckie Thistle and we’ll go into that one looking to sharpen up all over the park. We take the blame as a team as it’s a team game at the end of the day and as long as we can pull our socks up and fight for each other.”

Prior to signing for Huntly back in May, the former Fraserburgh player had enjoyed an impressive final season with Maud and he is looking to build on his first goal for Huntly.

“I’ve set myself a target of 20 goals. I scored 16 in 18 games last season which is probably one of my best so far and I was just unfortunate with a hernia that it delayed it. I wasn’t expecting a move, at the time I just wanted to get myself fit and repay them. I was thankful to Allan Hale and the chance he gave me at Maud as he helped me get my career back on track after four seasons in the Highland League at a young age. I was at a young age when I was with Fraserburgh and Turriff and taking that step back was a good move and thankfully now Huntly came along and gave me the chance to step up again which was the level I wanted to play at.”
