Fraserburgh United hitman Scott Falconer is enjoying a great start to the season since signing for the side.

Falconer has scored eight goals since his move from amateur side Clinton Thistle and is proving a big hit for the College Park side.

Falconer told the Herald this week of the difficult decision he faced when choosing to make the step up a level.

He said: “I was playing with Clinton Thistle and I did find it hard to leave as I was really enjoying my football. I got on really well with everyone in the team and around it.

“Gary Sim approached me and I thought it was the right time to move up a level and give it a go as I was playing so well.”

United have not had the best run of luck in recent games with the team getting beat on penalties after throwing away a three-goal advantage to Islavale.

When speaking of his start of the season Falconer said: “I’m really enjoying it and I hope the team can get a bit more luck during the season than we have had at the start.

“I knew most of the team if not all the team before I went up, that was a big reason I ended up moving.”

Falconer also told the Herald about his favourite goal so far for the club which was also his first.

“My first goal against Deveronside to give us the lead. I thought it was a good strikers finish and hope to score many more like it this season.”

And as for his biggest influence in his footballing career, Falconer looks to the foreign market.

“I’d say that there are loads of players that have influenced me, Luca Toni, Totti, Torres, and Drogba. I try to pick up different things from different players,” he added.
