Hunter ready for new season at the helm

Fraserburgh Football Club manager Kris Hunter spoke to us last week about how pre-season preparations were taking shape at the club.

The Burgh had finished the season in fine form, breaking their previous year’s point tally and securing fifth place in the Highland League.

Revealing that training would restart later this month, Hunter was clear that he had no intentions of adding to his youthful squad.

“We’re happy with the squad,” he told us.

With the club’s community involvement programme now up and running, having held several events over the past season, there seems little need for the Burgh to look further afield than their own doorstep for available player.

There would be a few new faces at training, however, at the start of the season, as Hunter looks to find something something extra to boost the club’s Highland League prospects. There would be no major revolution, however.

“We’ve got 40 boys, including the youngsters coming, so we’ll see who’s all ready.

“There’s maybe one or two boys that’ll come train with us and we’ll see how they get on, but, apart from that, no. There’s nobody we’re looking to take in,” he told us.
