Fraser Thomson

Player – Senior Flag

Broncos – #20

Club Head Coach 2018 – 

2010 – Present

In 2018 Fraser will be playing with the Grangemouth Broncos in the BAFA Premier North Conference

 

Fraser first started playing flag in 2000 with the Grangemouth Broncos Cadets at the age of 6. While he has dabbled in Football (soccer) and full contact American Football (5-on-5 and 11-man) he has always made it clear Flag is his first choice.

While Fraser only started playing Senior Flag in 2010, he had been playing in adult social games for years before that. Since 2010 though, he has become a significant part of the team, and now starts in most games. Over the years he has played most positions, but probably considers himself to be a defensive safety first.
