Frater claim he feels at home after extending Ammanford stay
Ammanford striker Craig Frater extended his stay at the club yesterday, after signing on for another year, following their 3-2 loss to AFC Porth.
The striker has been in phenomenal form during his three year stay at the club and has notched over 100 goals in just three seasons, with an average of nearly a goal per game.
The former Manchester City academy prospect has been in blistering form as of late, and recently notched up three consecutive hat-tricks as Ammanford went on a nine match unbeaten run.
With 33 league goals, the frontman will miss out on the golden boot to Lee Trundle, baring a forage of goals in the last game v Trundle’s Reds, and the nifty forward is delighted to re-sign with the club.
“I’m very happy,” Frater said when asked how he felt after re-signing for the 2017/18 season. “I have never played for a club who looks after me so much on and off the pitch. All the managers, coaches and players are brilliant. They’re not just my team mates but my best mates. Like a family. I feel at home!”
After playing for Llanelli and Haverfordwest in the Welsh Premier League, the capture of the frontman was something of a coil for the then Welsh League Divison Three side. However, it seems the club holds a special place in his heart.
“Playing for ammanford means a lot. It’s to give something back to the people who take time out to watch us play by scoring goals and giving 100%.”
However, as typical of the man himself, he just wants more success next year, with more goals and challenging for promotion the ultimate aim.
“I want to be top goalscorer which I’ve missed out this year, only by a few, behind Lee Trundle, which I am happy with! As a team we will be lookin to push to go up to Divison 1, and there was no reason why wecouldn’t have done it this year, jus a few of our mistakes and results cost us. We will put it right next season!”
Striking words from the clinical forward, who will be hoping his commitment and goals to the side will be matched by a promotion push after an excellent end of the season.
