Fraser boys do their clubs proud

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News -

BUS­SEL­TON cap­tain Ai­dan Fraser is hav­ing a ca­reer best sea­son, a year af­ter his brother, Mitch, did the same for East Perth.

Ai­dan has kicked 29 goals in 12 matches, lead­ing his young side with pride.

The 25-year-old said he was pleased with his form and the de­vel­op­ment of the young play­ing group.

Last year, Mitch Fraser was in a sim­i­lar po­si­tion, av­er­ag­ing al­most 20 dis­pos­als a game in his third sea­son as a sta­ble in the league team.

The 23-year-old was play­ing along­side some of the State’s best, in­clud­ing a num­ber of West Coast Ea­gles play­ers who were ply­ing their trade in the WAFL.

He even won the 2016 best and fairest award at the club.

Un­for­tu­nately for Mitch, his year ended in Round One, when he suf­fered a sea­son-end­ing in­jury when he tore his an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment.

Ai­dan said he had a few talks with his younger brother, who was dis­ap­pointed with the se­ri­ous in­jury.

“Him and his part­ner had their first child about three weeks af­ter that, so it was sort of a bless­ing in dis­guise as he didn’t have to be at the club six days a week,” he said.

Ai­dan said he would love to one-day play along­side Mitch at the Mag­pies.

“Hope­fully it hap­pens when he is done hav­ing a crack at the big time,” he said.
