Former Dons midfielder Stuart Duff today said lifting the Highland League title would be one of the highlights of his career – and could prove to be his swansong.
Cove Rangers will clinch the title against Clachnacuddin tonight if they avoid defeat in Inverness.
The Aberdeen side need just one point from their final two games to be confirmed as champions for the fifth time in the club’s history.
But for Duff, who spent two and a half years at Aberdeen after moving from Dundee United in January 2008, it would be a first league crown in a career that has also seen him play in Malta and Kazakhstan.
“It would mean a lot to me,” said the Aberdonian, who joined Cove in October 2014.
“To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about trophies when I joined Cove.
“It was just a case of getting back into football and playing 90 minutes on a Saturday, as I had taken a bit of time out from football.
“I was just fortunate that my signing coincided with a good run and we won the Highland League Cup last year. Now we are pushing for the title this year.
“It has only been over the last week that we have thought ‘it is within touching distance now’.
“A Highland title would definitely be up there in my career.”
