A convincing performance, matched by a winning effort, pleased Fraserburgh manager Kris Hunter in the immediate aftermath of their Fort William fixture.

Having taken his side to the West of Scotland for the game last Saturday, Hunter was happy to bring another three points back to the Bellslea on the day that Brora scooped the Highland League title.

“It was impressive. I still thought the performance could have been better, but, saying that, there’s not a lot of teams that have come here and put six by them.

“It’s always a hard place to get results. I think it was a professional performance from us from the word go,” he added.

The manager also singled out club captain, and long-serving central defender Russell McBride for praise, saying that the Brocher, who played his testimonial at the start of the season, had been in superb form once more.

“I think Russell McBride has set the standard in the last couple of weeks. He’s been superb and he’s keeping everybody around him on their toes, putting in professional performances.”

What continues to be important for the club, however, as Hunter explained to us, is that they continue to improve every year.

“We’re delighted that we’ve overtaken last year’s point tally. What’s important to us is that we always improve every season.”

An impressive Scottish Cup run behind them, and with the team seemingly scoring for fun, there is little to be concerned about at the Bellslea, presently.

The title now out of reach for the Burgh for another season, the club from the North-east will likely be back in the mix next term should they continue their fine end-of-season form into the new campaign.

Fraserburgh will finish the season with a home tie to Strathspey Thistle on April 26.

However, they first have trips to Clachnacuddin and keith on April 12 and April 19, respectively, to contend with.
