Huntly defender Sean Croll was pleased with how his side ended the 2015/16 season with back to back wins on the road and successive clean sheets – the first time Huntly had recorded back to back clean sheets in just over four years.

Speaking after our final game at Fort William the defender was pleased with the recent results.

“To win the last two games two-nil and keep a clean sheet is certainly a positive, it’s been a really tough season and we’ve lost a lot of goals but since Dougie and Grayser have come in we’ve tighten up a bit at the back. There have been some defeats in that time but it also gives us something to build on for next season.”

Croll is one player who has benefited under the new management duo of Gray and Baxter. He had only started three times under previous Manager Gregg Carrol but a tactical change saw the 29 year old played in a back three and since then he has played every minute under the pair since their first match back on December 12th against Inverurie Loco Works.

“It’s really helped me, I’ve played under Dougie for about five years now and he knows I like to try and get on the ball and read the game rather than take the physical approach that some defenders. It’s helped playing with (Mark) Lawson as well as he’s very good for talking players through games and there have been times we’ve had to change things around defensively whether it’s other players in beside or a change of formation.”

Despite finishing one place higher than the previous season and six points better off, the former Banks O’ Dee player admitted it was an indifferent league campaign.

“It’s been hard this season, in between late December up until the end of February it was hard to get a run of games going due to a number of call-offs and it took until the last two games of the season before we two games in succession but onwards to next season now.”

After playing in the juniors prior to his move to Huntly in June, Sean had spent six season in the junior leagues but he admitted that linking up with a number of former team mates helped in his first season in the Highland League.

“Ian Cruickshank is a menace to any team – he doesn’t stop. Philip Duncan is really good on the ball while Neale Allan has a good engine getting down the right side of the pitch so it’s been good for me linking up with those three again having played at Banks O’ Dee with them.”
