Forfar Athletic 0 Spartans 1
Forfar’s pre-season programme of games continued with a home fixture against East of Scotland league side Spartans. New Loons signing Craig Wilson lined up on the right as Dick Campbell continued to shape his squad for the coming season.
In a largely uneventful first half Beesley and Kadik of Spartans brought out the best of Greg Paterson in the Forfar goal. As the half came to a close Chris Templeman headed tamely into the arms of Jackson in the Spartans goal and Graham Gibson had an effort chalked off for offside.
Early in the second half Spartans scored the only goal of the game when Omar Kadik scored from a Chris Anderson cross. Forfar replied with a Steve Crawford effort which hit the post and flashed across the face of the goal. Chris Templeman stung the hands of Jackson in the Spartans goal and Kevin Byers had an effort blocked by Jackson’s legs.
Forfar continued to press for an equaliser but it wasn’t to be when Mark McCulloch and Duncan Reid both saw their shots at goal go over the bar.
