Interview with Forfar Athletic’s new signing Gary Fraser

Gary Fraser echoed his Forfar Athletic teammate Thomas Reilly’s ambitions this season and believes it’s vital to take a winning mentality into the new season.

The recent signing from Partick Thistle spoke of his delight at joining the Loons, feeling the squad are good enough to at least finish in the top half of League One.

Fraser, 24, spoke highly of his new manager Jim Weir, noting him as the main reason for moving to Station Park.

“I’m definitely delighted to join Forfar, I’ve really enjoyed it so far, it’s been good. I spoke to Jim Weir beforehand and he’s been brilliant, he’s the main reason why I’ve come here.”

Forfar kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 1-0 win at home to Ayr United and Fraser expressed his delight at getting started with a win; hoping they can take a winning mentality into the new season.

“It was a good game to kick off pre-season, it is always good to get off to winning ways in pre-season and get a winning mentality ahead of the competitive season hopefully. I really enjoyed getting started and it’s great to be here.”

The former Hamilton and Bolton midfielder has been impressed with his teammates so far and reckons they are good enough to at least finish in the top half of the league.

“The squad we have just now can 100% improve on last season, maybe one or two signings more but I think the squad we have at the moment can definitely finish in the top half.”

“Obviously we want to aim further than that, my aims are a bit high but I don’t want to give them away, I’ll keep them to myself and hopefully it happens.”

The Loons will face one of Fraser’s former sides Greenock Morton this Saturday and while he is looking forward to playing them, he is keen to focus on the future with Jim Weir’s side.

“I’m looking forward to playing against Morton but I’m just happy to be at Forfar, my main concern is this club and I feel we will do well.”
