‘Loons’ to continue participation in Development League

Friday, 08 July 2016 12:31

Forfar Athletic will continue their involvement in the SPFL Development League structure in the season ahead.

Again they will be the only team from this area in the Development League East which somewhat sadly will have only seven competing clubs.

Although Livingston have returned to the fold, Stenhousemuir and East Stirling have dropped out.

The clubs will play each other three times, giving eighteen league fixtures, with a mid season break in December and January.

This break alongside a few other gaps in the fixture list, will allow the ‘Loons’ to fix up a few matches on their 3G surface against local junior sides.

This not only gives the Station Park youngsters a few games against ‘fresh’ faces, but undoubtedly helps foster good relations with the junior clubs concerned, an important feature moving forward for Athies officials.

Continuing to run a side at this level is a big commitment for the club, but the Directors are convinced that it is already ‘bearing fruit.’

The decision also has the wholehearted support of Gary Bollan and his management team.

With the Station Park first team squad training out of town on a Tuesday this term, the Development League home games will kick-off at 7.30p.m. as against the 8p.m. start time last season.

The ‘Loons’ league fixtures area as follows;-
