Full Results Against Huntly

Huntly F.C. was formed in 1928. They were unanimously accepted to the Highland League at the league’s AGM in June 1928. The club entered the league in season 1928/29 and the first game was against Inverness Thistle on Saturday 25 August 1928. In only its second league campaign, Huntly became only the third team outside Inverness to win the league, finishing two points ahead of closest rivals Elgin City and Inverness Thistle.

However, the club would have to wait 64 years for another championship win and to a lot of supporters the greatest moment in the club’s history. The club then won the Highland League in a record five successive seasons between 1993 and 1998

Ayr United’s ace striker Glynn Hurst scored twice as the honestmen beat Huntly 2-0 on 24th July 1999 in their pre-season tour of the highlands.

No matchday programme was produced by the Highland club for this first ever meeting.
