West delighted with start to Broch 17s season

Written by 

Fraserburgh Link-Up Under 17s have always been a good team to watch & this campaign has been no different. The Broch are currently 2nd with 5 wins, a draw & a loss however there is teams who have games in hand on the Buchan outfit.

They have enjoyed a good start to the season though & striker Andrew Hannar has been an impressive player for Fraserburgh Link-Up & his efforts haven’t gone unnoticed with Highland League side Fraserburgh FC signing him up. Hannar has already seen appearances with the Highland League outfit & has a bright future ahead of him in the game.

Coach Matthew West has spoken about the season who said: “I’m absolutely delighted with the season so far, we have competed well in games & the guys have shown good habits but we are wanting to finish as high as we can in the league.

“We did okay last season however we are looking to have an improvement on that this season & we are working hard towards that, we have Lewis United at Rothienorman, hopefully the game is on first & foremost & then we will be looking to go there & work hard. Lewis are a good side.

“We went up there at the start of the season & ran them close, we were a little bit aggrieved not to get more out of the game so hopefully we can go there & show the same attitude & we might get a bit more luck this time around.

“The score line against Albion kind of flattered them, we run them close & they run away from them at the end.

Fraserburgh face Rangers in the Scottish Cup on Sunday lunchtime in front of the Sky Sports cameras & West spoke about the game as well as a bit more about Andrew Hannar.

“It’s a good success story for Link-Up & in particular my group of boys that Andrew is doing so well & we wish him all the best, he continues to work with us & trains now & again & we are delighted he took the step up to the Highland League.

“Sunday is going to be a great day for the town, I am involved in the corporate side of things at the leisure centre for the hospitality. There is a buzz about the town & the people involved. I was in the town centre recently & people are just speaking about the game, we'll look to use the game to inspire my boys & the players & people at Fraserburgh Link-Up.

“Andrew will be happy to be a part of the game in any capacity, even if it’s sitting in the stand then I think it’s still a great achievement, Andrew understands that he is young & he has a lot to learn, Andrew has contributed well in the games he’s went to so far, it would be great to see Andrew get a run out however certainly for him just to be a part of it will be great on its own."
