"I am absolutely delighted that he sees Huntly as the club to start his next chapter of his career.

"We have been light in the forward area all season and it’s been an area where have actively been looking to strengthen however it was important, we took our time to identify the players we felt were best suited to come into our environment and make an impact.

"I’ve every confidence in Andy that he will deliver for us during his time at Huntly."
