Marcus Fraser has cleared up his long-term future by signing a new St Mirren contract – now he is turning his immediate focus on reaching the Scottish Cup final.
The 26-year-old’s existing deal was due to expire this summer but having shone throughout the season, the former Ross County full-back has now committed to stay in Paisley until 2023.
“It is brilliant for me moving forward,” Fraser said. “I know where I will be the next two years.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this season. I have played a lot of games, the team has done well and I have fitted into that so I am really looking forward to the next two years.
“We have got to two semi-finals and obviously we have a big game to look forward to on Sunday but next season hopefully we can continue the consistency in the league and push forward.”
That Scottish Cup semi-final clash with St Johnstone this weekend could put St Mirren one step closer to silverware and Fraser, who won the League Cup during his time in Dingwall, admits the opportunity is huge.
He said: “To win a trophy at any part of your career is massive.
“If you ask all footballers, it is massive for them.
“But just one step at a time, Sunday is the next big one and we will take it from there.
“If we do the business on Sunday we will have a big day to look forward to but first and foremost we have a big task on our hands, but we look forward to it.”
