Huntly signing Gary Davidson will make his home debut against his former club Turriff United on Saturday.
The 31-year-old former Lochee United, Kinnoull and Beith juniors midfielder or defender is looking forward to facing the side for who he made 67 appearances since arriving at The Haughs in June 2012.
Davidson, who played in the Scottish Cup loss to Nairn on Saturday, said: “My move to Huntly happened really quick. I got a call saying they had been given permission to speak to me and I spoke to Gregg Carrol, for me it was a no-brainer.
“I need to be playing football and I really enjoyed my first game for my new club. I hope I can now move on and get myself fit. I played at right back at Nairn on Saturday, but I can also play as a holding midfielder if the team needs me in there.
“Turriff have been doing well but if we can play how we finished against Nairn we can give them a tough game and take something out of the fixture.”
Davidson was frustrated by the 2-1 cup loss to Nairn and added: “I thought we deserved at least a draw, in the second half we were by far the better team. We had some chances and had them pegged back at times, and we also had some decent chances in the first half as well.
“Their winning goal was a hard one to take. The ball was about half a yard from crossing the line and one of their players admitted to me that it wasn’t in. That was sickening for us and you could see why players get frustrated and pick up bookings.
“If their winner had been a wonder goal we could have taken it, but it wasn’t and it has put us out of the Scottish Cup.”
Carrol is happy with his new acquisition and said: “Gary had not started a game since mid-August, but he came in at Nairn and didn’t look out of place.
“He’s maybe short of match fitness but his experience is important when you have got a relatively young squad, he won’t be the last experienced player we sign, I would like to bring in more.”
Huntly have released 33-year-old central defender Leigh Henderson, who made just six appearances for the Christie Park club.
