Jason Brown is hoping he can help Peterhead to League Two glory and savour “one of the best feelings in the world”.
Victory for the Blue Toon tomorrow against Stirling Albion at Balmoor will be enough to clinch the Championship and promotion to League One.
For the 22-year-old it would be his first taste of title success.
He has heard stories about what it’s like from older brother Jordon, who won League Two with Peterhead in 2014 and has won the Highland League with Cove Rangers this season.
Now Jason wants to experience it for himself and the defender said: “We’re in a good position and we’re pleased to be where we are.
“If you’d given us this opportunity at the start of the season, needing one win from two games, we would have bitten your hand off for it.
“We’re looking forward to the game and hoping we can get over the line.
“It would mean everything to me to win the league with Peterhead.
“When you think about your career you want to win things.
“I’m still quite young and haven’t had the chance to win a league before.
“But I’ve heard about what it’s like from my brother Jordon and others who were part of the Peterhead team who won League Two in 2014.
“They’ve said it’s one of the best feelings in the world so I’m hoping I can experience that tomorrow.
“We know how bad it felt last year to miss out on the title and then promotion in the play-offs.
“We remember that and we’ve used that as motivation this year.
“It’s something we’ve spoken about and we don’t want to have that again. So hopefully we can get over the line.”
Peterhead returned to winning ways with last Saturday’s 2-1 success at Elgin.
The victory came after two draws for the Buchan outfit, one of which was against rivals Clyde on April 6 when from 3-1 up the Blue Toon could only draw 3-3.
In that fixture at Broadwood Brown gave away a penalty for handball which allowed the Bully Wee to battle back. But he has been pleased with how he has bounced back from that disappointment and how Jim McInally’s team responded.
He added: “A few weeks ago I made a mistake in that game at Clyde.
“Everyone makes mistakes at times and I’m delighted I’ve managed to stay in the team.
“I’m also pleased we managed to get back to winning ways last weekend at Elgin.
“The boys have been brilliant this season. Any time we have gone behind or lost a game I feel like we have responded and bounced back.
“That is why we are in this position and we’re all looking forward to this game.
“It’s a good squad that we’ve got with a good spirit.
“And we’re all in it for each other. It’s a great team to be part of with a great spirit and we’re hoping to get over the line tomorrow.
“Stirling don’t really have a lot to play for.
“But neither did Elgin last Saturday and we saw how tough it was against them at Borough Briggs. So we’ll expect another hard game against Stirling.
“We’ll prepare right and go into it with confidence knowing if we play well we can get the three points.”
