A new star is coming through the ranks at Wolves as Fraser nets second U23s goal

The Wolves U23s ran out 2-0 winners against Birmingham City last night, and there was another goal for 16-year-old Nathan Fraser.

James Collins’ side continued their unbeaten start to 2022 and put in a comfortable performance at Aggborough.

Harvey Griffiths got the ball rolling for the hosts, pouncing on a loose ball in the box after the goalkeeper had saved a Christian Marques header.

Wolves had some good chances to add to that through Lee Harkin, Taylor Perry and Jack Hodnett.

But it was Fraser who ensured all three points with a clinical finish in injury-time.

The starlet, who came on as substitute with just over 15 minutes remaining, received the ball from the excellent Hugo Bueno after a driving run from the Spaniard.

He took one touch to gather the ball, before unleashing a precise curling effort into the far corner.

That was Fraser’s second goal in four days, after he found the net against Swansea City. Against the Swansea he was on hand to turn the ball in from a tight angle, after an effort from Tyler Roberts hit the crossbar.

The result against the Blues meant a successive win in PL2 for Wolves, and the team move up to seventh in the Division 2 table, just a point outside the play-off positions. It’s Middlesbrough up next on Friday.

Nathan Fraser a name to look out for for Wolves fans

It is fantastic to see young Fraser getting amongst the goals at U23s level.

He showed absolutely brilliant composure for his injury-time goal against Birmingham.

It has been brilliant start for him at this level and it’s a name for Wolves supporters to look out for.

Scoring goals at U23s level as a 16-year-old suggests the starlet has big potential.

Fraser has been with Wolves since the age of seven. He has progressed right the way through our pre-Academy and Academy programme and last summer he became a full-time scholar.
