Want returns feeling “stronger and fitter” after loan spell

Defender Shaun Want believes he will reap the benefits of his spell on loan at Peterhead in the new campaign. 

The 25-year-old joined The Blue Toon after spending a period on the treatment table. However, insisted he is in fantastic shape as he prepares to head into pre-season.

He said: “I enjoyed every minute of my football when I was on loan. I was playing regularly and getting minutes under my belt so that was good. It was a very good level and every week was tough and I have been feeling stronger and fitter every week.

“I am looking forward to pre-season I feel fit, ready to go and I think my time out on loan has played a massive part in that. We obviously have a couple of more weeks off but it’s all about staying fit and coming back as ready as I can be.”

The club’s return to competitive action sees us travel to face Dundee on Saturday 9thJuly and with this date set the central defender already has his sights set on making an impact next season. 

He said: “We have all been given programmes to follow over the close season and we are working through them just now. My focus for next season will be to get myself back in the team and playing every week, to put myself in a position to do that, the work starts now.”

Want believes his experience with the club gives him an added advantage as he looks to secure his place in the starting line-up. 

He said: “The competition for places doesn’t change, it has been the same every year I have been here. There is always a good standard in my position, and I think that competition is something which benefits us all.”

With the club’s season ticket renewal period underway, Want revealed he is looking forward to playing in front of the Accies crowd once again. 

He said: “Everyone knows how important it is to have the fans behind us and for us all to be in it together and hopefully next season we can give them all something to celebrate.”
