Lo­cos de­lighted to snare ‘big-game’ Hunter

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - CLASSIFIED - BY DAVE ED­WARDS

In­verurie Lo­cos have re­ceived a mas­sive boost with striker Andy Hunter agree­ing to put pen to pa­per on a new con­tract.

The deal means that Hunter will re­main at Har­law Park un­til at least the sum­mer of 2021.

Hunter, who joined the Gar­i­och club in June 2013 from Aberdeen ju­niors Banks o’ Dee, is clos­ing in on mak­ing his 150th Lo­cos ap­pear­ance and dur­ing that time he has found the back of the net on 80 oc­ca­sions.

His first com­pet­i­tive goal for the Har­law Park club was a long-range win­ner in a 4-3 vic­tory over ri­vals Tur­riff United and he has gone on to score sev­eral spec­tac­u­lar goals, many of them in im­por­tant cup ties, earn­ing him the nick-name of ‘Big Game Hunter’ from the Lo­cos sup­port.

Hunter, who net­ted 34 times in all com­pe­ti­tions last sea­son, has missed much of the cur­rent sea­son due to a trou­ble­some knee in­jury.

In­verurie Lo­cos boss Neil Cooper said that he is de­lighted the player has com­mit­ted his long-term fu­ture to the club.

He said: “It’s re­ally pleas­ing to get Andy’s longer con­tract signed, sealed and de­liv­ered.

“Andy Hunter is a piv­otal part of what we are all about here at In­verurie Lo­cos and he adds real class to my group of play­ers.

“Once again I can only sing the praises of my chair­man and my vice-chair­man here at Har­law Park in se­cur­ing yet an­other key player on a long-term deal.”

“Andy Hunter is a piv­otal part of what we are all about here...”
