TURRIFF United's teen keeper Tim Findlay insists he's looking forward to his next taste of Highland League football following his Buckie baptism of fire.
The 16-year-old was thrown in at the deep end at Buckie last Saturday after Fraser Hobday's fourth-minute red card.
Findlay had only signed with United from juvenile football days earlier, but turned in a performance that belied his years with a string of stops.
With Hobday banned for this weekend's clash at home to Fort William, rookie Findlay is set to be back in the firing line as United target back-to-back home wins in the league for the first time since April 2018.
Commenting on his debut, the youngster said: "It was all just a surprise and I had to react to it.
"I enjoyed it a lot but it would have been better if we had managed to get the three points, or even a draw for our efforts, but that's the way football goes sometimes.
"All that's next is to work on the things I didn't do so well and improve for next time.
"The defence on Saturday really helped me through the game and gave me a lot of protection.
"They were solid.
"I just hope I can get as much game time as possible at Turriff and enjoy my football."
