Former Keith and Maud boss Hale, 33, succeeded Martin Skinner as Huntly manager last summer.
Black and Golds chairman Gordon Carter said “When we appointed Allan and Stefan in June 2020 we knew were embarking on an exciting new chapter under two highly talented and ambitious young coaches.
“Despite being in the infancy of the project the improvement, positivity, spirit and drive within the playing squad is clear for all to see and the management team have played a huge part in the progression.
“They have assembled a squad who are young, exciting, dynamic and playing a brand of football that is positive and entertaining.
“Both Allan and Stefan are outstanding professionals who are meticulous, take pride in their work and are very driven to help bring success back to the club.
“By giving the management team long term contracts it allows the club to sustain a period of stability that will allow the club to focus on our growth and we are confident the club has a very bright future ahead with them at the helm.”
