Stirling Albion: Frazer Wright Hoping for Survival Swansong

Frazer Wright is hoping to end his playing career on a high, by helping Stirling Albion to avoid relegation this season.

The veteran defender signed for The Binos until the end of the season on Friday, and made his debut in a 3-0 win over Clyde on Saturday.

He has his sights set on a move in to another area of the game at the end of the season.

He said: “Ideally, I think I’m looking to go in to coaching.

“I’ll never say never with the playing side of it but at my age now, it’s getting harder to play all of the games and train all the time.”

Before then, the former Kilmarnock and St Johnstone defender knows his team have a fight on their hands to stay up.

His side’s priority is staying in the league, with The Binos just two points ahead of bottom placed Cowdenbeath.

Despite their league position, he was impressed by the quality of his new teammates in their win over Clyde on Saturday.

He said: “I was impressed, I thought they all did well… (they had) good quality as well so good for the future.”

Wright was signed from Dumbarton, with his former teammate and fellow Scottish Cup winner Dave Mackay, now manager at Forthbank, playing a big part in the decision.

Wright said: “I spoke to Dave last Saturday, asking if I fancied coming along and I said I’ll speak to the manager and get back to you.

“The Dumbarton manager said he was quite happy for me to go but if I wanted to stay then he was fine for me to stay, and I just felt it was better for me to get out and start playing football again.”

    Already after only 1 game he has improved the worst defence in League 2, after a shutout against Clyde. Before his arrival we averaged 2 goals a game, whist Frazer might have lost a bit of speed he makes up for it in his ability to read the game. Hope it have him at Forthbank until the end of the season.
