Fraserburgh United are looking to fight their way back to the Junior Superleague.

The team enjoyed a spell in the Superleague, albeit they were relegated back to Division One at the end of the season. The team finished 14th in the league having won three games all season and finished on just 16 points.

Now, with a new man in charge in Gary Sim, the club is looking to get straight back to the top tier of junior football.

Sim told the Herald : “The aim is to get back into the Superleague. We enjoyed it last year and that is the aim.

“There are a few clubs that will be in the same position as ourselves and looking to get promoted so this season it is going to be really competitive between all the teams.”

There is also a new assistant coach as well in Alyn Falkner. United have managed to keep a good amount of the lads that played for them last season, with one new addition and losing two members of last year’s team who have joined the Broch.

When asked on how the summer had been Sim continued: “ We had a cup final at the start of June, so the lads have had the last four weeks off and are back in now.

“We have had one new addition to the team in Scott Falkner who has come up and joined us from the amateur league. We are also looking into signing a few more and we have a few guys on the horizon that we would like. We have still kept a good amount of the lads from last season.”

Fraserburgh United’s season kicks-off with a home game at College Park on August 2 against Maud in the Grill League Cup before playing Longside four days later on August 6 at College Park.
