Wick secretary and interim chairman, Alan Farquhar, said they were “absolutely delighted” to be able to acquire such a talented and versatile player of undoubted quality, with vast experience who “can only enhance and improve the current squad.”.
Mr Farquhar paid tribute to Mr Clark and secretary Alix Turner for the very professional manner in which they dealt with the transfer enabling it all to happen very quickly.
Mr Clark commented “Naturally, we are disappointed to lose a player of Grant’s calibre. During his 132 appearances for Huntly his desire and commitment for the club was always exemplary. However, we fully understand his desire to play for his local club once again, and wish him well for the future “.
