Fraser Fyvie Enjoying Life At The Latics

Fraser Fyvie Enjoying Life At The Latics



Wigan Athletic youngster Fraser Fyvie played the full 90 minutes on his debut for Scotland Under 21's in their 2-0 defeat to the USA in Marbella on Friday afternoon. 19 year old Fyvie signed for the Latics in the summer, joining from Aberdeen for just short of £1 million, his first game for the under 21's is the latest step in the development of the highly rated youngster

Fyvie is really enjoying himself in the North West, he's loving his time at the Latics, but at the moment he is on the periphery of the first team, two Capital One cup appearances are the only action that he's tasted with the first eleven and he is yet to make his Premier League debut.

Having played in the SPL at just 16 with Aberdeen, Fyvie has high hopes that his debut will come sooner rather than later, in an interview with The Daily Record when asked will he have to wait until next season to get a run out in the Premier League, he replied - 'No chance. I'm going to get into the first team this season! Obviously I've played first-team football so I know what it's like. I've played a few reserve games and the manager is there every week.'

Speaking of the manager, Fyvie is enjoying working under Roberto Martinez, the culture at the Latics is one of a close knit group, one where all the players have only good things to say about their boss and the young Scot is no different, he continues - 'He encourages us and tells us to keep going. He signed me so he has obviously got a bit of faith in me. He's probably the best manager I could be under at this stage of my career. All the boys at Wigan love him and couldn't speak more highly of him.'

Settling in at the Latics hasn't been a problem for Fyvie, with fellow Scots James McArthur, Shaun Maloney, Gary Caldwell and James McCarthy, it's been home from home so far, Fyvie said - 'With the Scots guys at the club it's been easy for me to settle in. They are a good bunch but when it comes to football they're serious about the game so your standards lift straight away because they have to.

'It's the Premier League, the best league in the world. You can't just walk into a team unless you're a high profile player.

'I feel as though I've improved since I joined Wigan. I've learned things that are totally new to me, a new way of playing.

'With the manager's style of play it's a lot different to a lot of others. He plays good football, it's attacking and it's enjoyable as well.

'The Premier League is the best in the world. If a club comes to get you, there is no way you can say no.'


Scotland under 21's face Canada on Monday, if selected Fyvie will be hoping that his second cap will bring more success, he said - 'It's everyone's chance to show the manager that they merit a place in the team.

'Nobody wants to be sitting on the bench and these games are of vital importance in preparing for the European Championship qualifiers which start next year.

'This is the chance for everyone to show what they can do'
