SCOTT Wright admits he’s eager to build on claiming his first honour as a Dons player.
Winger Wright was the stand-out performer on the night the Dons celebrated winning the SPFL Development League.
The 17-year-old, who stays in Balmedie, scored once and helped to set up another goal as they beat Dunfermline 3-1.
Wright made his first-team debut earlier this season when the Dons beat Latvia’s Daugava Riga 5-0 in the Europa League.
His hopes of building on that were hindered by an ankle injury that sidelined him for a few weeks.
Wright, whose contract with the Dons still has two years to run, is fit now and thirsty for another taste of the action at top-team level.
He said: “You can see by the first team’s results that they are doing well, too, so it will be tough.
“You’ve got to have trust in your coaches that if you keep working hard enough the chance will come.
“When you’ve had a taste of first-team football you can’t get enough of it.
“But when you’re my age you know it’s about waiting for your time.
“I’m just pleased to have finally overcome my ankle injury in time to help us win the league.
“We’ve finished the season strongly, you can tell that by our results.
“It’s a fantastic feeling to then reap the rewards for our efforts.
“It was also good to gain benefits from us being able to include up to five over-age players over the course of the season.
“Playing with people like Russell Anderson, Barry Robson and Willo Flood can only help to make the younger ones like myself better players.
“Hopefully it will help me push on next season.”
