Ross Willox is all-in on Fraserburgh’s chase for silverware as the club seek to extend his loan from Peterhead.
Midfielder Willox picked up his second winner’s medal with the Broch on Wednesday night, adding the Aberdeenshire Shield to the Aberdeenshire Cup they won back in October.
With first-team opportunities limited at Balmoor, Willox joined the Highland League side in September and has seen them chase glory in a multitude of competitions. Fraserburgh are still in the Highland League Cup and are in pursuit of Brora at the top of the league.
Mark Cowie is keen to keep him at the club and Willox is happy to be part of a successful setup.
Willox said: “The club’s treated me so well since I’ve come in – they’ve made it easy for me. The team here is fantastic and they all know exactly what we’re doing.
“They’re a historically successful club. I needed to get myself back playing – I hadn’t played in a long time at Peterhead. It started out as that (getting games) but I’m fully invested here. I’m just here to help the team win and it feels fantastic.”
The Broch have little time to enjoy their Shield triumph, which came with a deserved 3-1 victory over Inverurie Locos on Wednesday night.
They return to Highland League action tomorrow against Nairn County at Bellslea. Fraserburgh trail leaders Brora Rangers by nine points but have two games in hand, with a home game against the Cattachs pencilled in for next month.
Willox added: “The league is the one they all want. It would be some effort if we win the league, because Brora are winning on a streak like us. It’ll be tough.”
Their second trophy of the season on Wednesday night came courtesy of goals from Paul Campbell (two) and Scott Barbour, with Willox praising the output of the Broch’s striking duo.
He said: “Scott (Barbour) bullies his opponents and Paul (Campbell) is a threat behind. The pair of them are big game players.
“It was a bit shaky from us at the start but then we took over. They made us work hard but I thought we were the better team throughout.”
