Fraserburgh FC are delighted to announce that Greg Buchan has returned to the club following his transfer from Huntly. The 24 year old midfielder made his debut for the club against Strathspey Thistle in July 2016 and scored his first goal four weeks later against Cove Rangers in a 2-2 draw at Christie Park. In total Greg amassed 16 goals, including a double against Fort William in the 13-0 home win in November 2018 over 117 appearances.
Having been loaned out to Deveronvale during the 2020/21 season, he then signed for Huntly in June 2021 and was instrumental in helping the club to last season’s Aberdeenshire Shield Final against Banks O’ Dee.
Manager Mark Cowie made no secret of his happiness to be reunited with Greg. “We are delighted to get Greg back at the club as we know that we weren’t the only interested party in him. We made a decision last year that saw Greg leave us and go to Huntly but that decision was made with Greg’s best interests in mind. At the time Grant Campbell was a big part of our team and Greg’s game time was not what he was looking for. We could have kept him at the club and he would have featured in our games, but we felt that for Greg to develop into the player we know he could be, then we would have to let him spread his wings a bit and play more regularly at another club. Since he has moved he has improved quite a bit in terms of his confidence and how he puts his stamp on games. I’ve known and coached Greg since he was around 13 years old and have always known the ability and potential he has had. Circumstances within our squad changed in the summer and had a big impact in our midfield area. With the resigning of Greg, I now feel we are stronger as a group in that area than we maybe were when we went in to the Premier Sports Cup games. Greg is excellent on the ball but can also press and be energetic too. He has a very good footballing brain and can see things change on the park and therefore adapt and keep playing his part in the games. All in all I’m really looking forward to seeing him back at the Bellslea and think he will continue to go from strength to strength at our club. He has already fitted straight back in to the squad and I’m really looking forward to working with him again”.
Everyone at Fraserburgh FC wishes Greg all the best on his return to the club
