Pre-season Training Well Underway

Monday, 26 June 2017 12:09

It may be only five weeks since that memorable afternoon up in Peterhead but training for the new season is already well underway for the Forfar squad. Saturday past was indeed the fourth session of the summer with a full day of training taking place at the fantastic facilities at the University of St Andrews. The Fife training base at University Park provides a truly world-class venue which has recently undergone a £14m redevelopment and has hosted the likes of FC Barcelona, Manchester United and Scottish Rugby as well as being the permanent training base for near neighbours Dundee United.

While most of the lads undertook a range of training drills and of course ‘enjoyed’ the hugely beneficial running sessions a few were in the gym recovering from injuries under the watchful eyes of physios Craig Reynolds and Lara Jordan. Everyone connected with the club, not least of all the players and coaching team, is highly impressed with the level of care and attention that Craig and Lara provide to the squad, assisted of course by the additional equipment made possible due to last year’s Tour de Angus cycle fundraiser.

Training will continue at the St Andrews venue for the coming weeks as the squad prepares for the pre-season friendlies and the eagerly awaited first competitive fixture away to Brechin City in the Betfred Cup on Tuesday 18 July.
