Kieran Simpson Agrees Contract Extension

We are delighted that Kieran Simpson has agreed a contract extension to his current deal which takes him to the summer of July 2022. Kieran has made 48 appearances for the club and has scored two goals with hopefully plenty more to follow.

Club Milestones in 13-1 victory

In our match with Turriff United at Bellslea Park on Saturday we had a few club milestones achieved.

First up is Lewis Duncan scoring his first goal for the club, congratulations Lewis.

While it is the first time we have had three hat-tricks in a game from three individuals, Scott Barbour, Lewis Duncan and Gary Harris, it doesn’t surpass the feat of John “Downes” McNab who scored three hat-tricks of his own, 9 goals in an Aberdeenshire Cup Match at home to Maud in a 11-1 victory on 4th October 1913.

Lastly, our seventh goal on Saturday, scored by Scott Barbour, was our 7500th goal in all competitions.

Contract Extensions at Bellslea

We are delight to have tied up three players on extended contracts Paul Young and Aidan Combe have signed until summer 2023 and Ryan Sargent has signed until the summer of 2022.

Excellent news, just in time for Christmas !!

Season Tickets for 2020/2021

To give us the maximum time to be ready for supporters getting back into Bellslea Park, we will now be selling Season Tickets for the coming season at a cost of £60 Adult and £30 Concessions.

While these will be sold on a first come first served basis as such, we are prioritising those supporters who for season 2019/2020 were Season Ticket Holders, both Ground and Hospitality, or Supporters Club Members. We have a list of those names and Tickets will be kept back for them until 5pm on Wednesday 2nd December after which they will be sold to the general public.

People are asked to email hospitality@fraserburghfc.co.uk or TEXT 07852 178634 with their Name and Telephone Number where details will be provided on how to collect or get the tickets delivered. It is important that you email or text so that a proper timeline can be kept for first come first served purposes. Payment can be made to the below account.

Sort Code: 80-06-86

Account No: 06005849

We are hopeful of getting supporters into the ground at some point soon but currently we do not know when. Should this be after our first home on 5th December, we will offer a refund of the games which could not be attended, due to the restriction on admission, on a pro rata basis.

Today’s Game

Today we start our competitive games for the new season. We would have preferred to start with supporters able to see our games but for now that is not possible.

It is important that nobody tries to sneak in, as any issues arising from non-compliance of the strict rules we are under will severely impact on the plans to get supporters back to Bellslea as soon as possible.

It seems a long time since we last played a competitive match and unfortunately since then we have lost a few people who were either close to the club or to friends of the club. Hopefully, everyone will this afternoon pause for a moment and reflect on the friends we have lost since this horrible pandemic started.

Apologies for anyone unintentionally missed from the above list but I am sure they will all be looking down on us today.

Please be assured I am not exaggerating when I say that there were serious concerns on the future of the club over the past eight months and we have to express our sincere thanks to the players and staff who have not taken wages since March and continue to do so. Likewise, we are very fortunate to have the support of our sponsors who have stuck with us. Especially the huge generosity shown by Mike Lawrie from our main sponsor, McWilliam.

To all our Supporters, Players, Management and Sponsors, we will be forever grateful.

Finlay Noble on behalf of all Fraserburgh FC Directors

Danny was the last remaining player of the team that beat Dundee in the Scottish Cup in January 1959.

Our condolences go to Aileen and the family.
