FORE-midable footballers from Huntly FC pitched in to help their club's annual golf day fundraiser.

The event at Huntly Golf Club was hailed a big success by organisers, with a record 33 teams taking part.

The winning team, with a score of 114, included Highland League goalkeeper Errol Watson and ex-Huntly favourite Gary McGowan.

They teamed up with Mark Wilson and Jamie Watt, another ex-Highland League star, to form a victorious quartet.

Huntly defender Chris Hay was in the second-placed team on 115 (better inward half) with Gordon Hutton, Callum Wood and Ewan Grant.

Third on 115 (next best inward half) were Stuart Leslie, Kieran Dey, Scott Brown and Stuart Reid.

Fourth on 115 were Charlie Ferries, Robbie Gordon, Dale Ferries and Ray Gordon.

AB Giveaways sponsored the nearest the pin prize at the second, won by Keith Ledingham, and the 17th, won by Mitch Murison.

Huntly FC's shirt sponsors Drac Logistics sponsored the longest drive at the 11th, Lucy Buckly being the big hitter on this occasion.

Huntly Motors sponsored the halfway bar and the event sponsor was RS Coaches, now the club's transport providers.

"Finally a huge thank you to everyone at Huntly Golf Club for being such brilliant hosts," said an event spokesperson.

"Both clubs have been through a very difficult 16 months and being able to stage these such well-supported events are hugely important as we emerge from COVID 19 restrictions."
