Huntly manager Gregg Carrol has continued to ring the changes to his under-performing squad.
The Black and Golds have signed Ellon United’s Mark Lawson in time for the central defender to be available for Saturday’s home Scottish Cup first round tie against Wick Academy, but forward Craig Morrison and midfielder Bruce Raffell have been released.
Lawson, who had a short spell in the Highland League with Inverurie Locos, has joined the club on a two-year contract and Carrol said: “Mark’s a big centre half who doesn’t take any nonsense from anyone, he’s a good passer of the ball and can play it out from the back.
“It’s been apparent that we’ve not had any natural central defenders, but now we have. We also now have David Christie back from his spell working in Australia, he gives us options.”
On the way out of Christie Park is Morrison who has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent as the player is set to call time on his playing career.
The 35-year-old former New Elgin, Lossiemouth, Keith, Turriff United and Deveronvale forward made seven appearances since arriving at Christie Park in August.
Also leaving the club is Raffell, who scored once in six appearances this season.
