Murdoch Targets Final Flurry

9 April 2015

Fraser is hoping his hard work will see him play some part in final Under-21 game

Young Crewe Alexandra forward Fraser Murdoch is hoping that he will be able to end a frustrating season with some time on the pitch for the club’s Under-21s. The Scotland Youth International has missed the entire season after suffering a cruciate ligament knee injury towards the end of the last campaign. He has spent this season getting through the intense rehab but their light at the end of the tunnel for the 18-year-old.

Murdoch signed professional forms for the club in the summer but he has endured a frustrating time and has seen his fellow first-team professionals James Baillie, James Jones, Callum Saunders and George Cooper all make their senior debuts at various stages this season.

Boss Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “It has been a frustrating time for Fraser and he has had to work hard to get back. It is never easy being out of the game for a long period and it can be a lonely place working in the gym every day.

“We have had to wait for Fraser and I’m sure he will get a good pre-season under his belt and he will be involved in our pre-season games and take it from there. He is a forward with great potential.

“He is more of a target man, he is decent in the air and brings others into play but he can also take a goal. He has a decent record of goals in the Academy and it will be a new start for him next season.”
