Fraser lights up the international stage

Scottish U'19 international, Ryan Fraser has been impressing for his national side and earning the plaudits from his club management duo too.

The winger played every minute of Scotland's UEFA 2013 U'19 Elite Round matches against Belgium, Georgia and England, with his performances drawing a report from coach Ricky Sbragia which was full of plaudits. It said:

'His performances in the games against Belguim and Georgia were outstanding. He was a constant threat and neither of the full backs could handle him. His delivery into the box was excellent...'

Unsurprisingly, this was well-received by The Cherries management duo of Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall. Having acquired the former Aberdeen player for 300k in January, injuries restricted the youngster to just five substitute appearances.

Eddie Howe told afcb.co.uk:

'I was really pleased Ryan went away and did well. We`ve had rave reviews about his performances for Scotland which is great. He came to us injured which was unfortunate and I think it was good for him to get some games because he probably needed it for his development... Hopefully, after pre-season and a good six weeks of work we will see the player we know he will be in the future.'

Whilst Jason Tindall added in the Daily Echo:

'He wanted to come to Bournemouth to develop and better his career and we are absolutely delighted with the way he is progressing... But in terms of next season, we are really excited about Ryan. A really good pre-season and being able to be with us from the start of the season will do him the world of good. I think everybody will really see what potential and ability he has got next season. He has got great feet, he goes past people and he has a really low centre of gravity. For someone so young, he is a very intelligent footballer... Every time he got the ball, there was a sense of feeling that he was going to do something that would make a difference. That is the type of player he is. Ryan will only get better with the ability and potential he has got.'

Hopefully, alongside the competition for places brought by Marc Pugh and Matt Ritchie, young Ryan can demonstrate to the fans this exciting potential and showcase the talents that brought him here with an exciting reputation.

I think the management need to develop Ryan further and build his confidence. In the games I saw him in last season he appeared a bit naive, but this was due perhaps to his injury. As a young player he needs support and I hope he develops over the season. Eddie Howe is the best person to take on someone like this - to make them reach their full potential.

Fraser looked brilliant the first time I saw him. Looking forward and hoping to see him shine in the Championship!
