McBride looking forward to testimonial

Fraserburgh FC’s long-serving defender, Russell McBride, has spoken to The Fraserburgh Herald ahead of his testimonial game against St Johnstone on Friday.

McBride, who has been with the Broch, and who lives locally, for around 19 years said that he was looking forward to the game on Friday, but that his fondest memory in a Fraserburgh shirt was a 6-3 thrashing of local rivals Peterhead.

Speaking following the Broch’s first game of their pre-season campaign against Falkirk, McBride said: “My fondest memory of playing for Fraserburgh is any time beating Peterhead.

“Specially a cup final, I think it was ‘96-’97 season, we beat them 6-3 in extra time after being down 3-0 with quarter-an-hour to go.

“I came on as a sub and scored the equaliser, then scored the fourth goal in extra-time.”
