The club are delighted to welcome Ryan McConville as our new Head Coach and Club Technical Director. 

Ryan comes with a very impressive CV having coached in Ireland, South Africa, Russia, China and the USA. His latest coaching position was in fact in Farmington, Connecticut with FSA!  

As head coach at Linfield Ladies in Ireland he guided the team to numerous trophies in 3 seasons and to the women’s champions league for the first time in their history, also successful at Lurgan Ladies who won their league earlier this year.  

He has held a UEFA A Licence for 9 years, and now a UEFA A Elite Youth Licence candidate along with many other qualifications. His key strengths are player development, leadership, communication and teamwork and he has worked with a number of girls and women who have progressed to international squads.

Edinburgh Cup 2019 – Semi-final shoot-out

An under 13 team including girls from two different Forfar Farmington teams attended the Edinburgh Cup on Sunday.

The girls won 5 out of 5 group games and qualified for the semi finals defeating teams from Inverness (6-1), Newcastle (1-0), Kilmarnock (2-0), Inverkeithing (3-0) and Linlithgow (8-1).

A 2-2 draw against Queen of the South in the semi final led to a penalty shoot out which they unfortunately lost 2-1.

The girls were a credit to their teams and the club. Some of the football they played was outstanding and certainly caught the eye of the spectators!

U17 – South / East League Cup Semi Final | Hibernian 2 v Forfar Farmington Falcons 0

The U17’s travelled down to a very windy Hibs training ground. Previously been held to a 0-0 draw at Station Park in the league, and it was clear the strong wind would play a major role in the tie, with Farmington playing into the wind in the first half which gave Hibs the advantage as most of the action was in the Farmington half, the girls fought hard and managed to clear half way into the Hibs half which was good play considering the condition’s. However opposition managed to capitalise and found the back of the net twice which did not dampen the girls spirits, as did not the horizontal rain at the end of the first half.

Farmington kicked of the second half and again most of the action was in the Hibs half with the girls involved in a lot of action for the possession of the ball, when Hibs did get into the Farmington half they could not break the defence down, but unfortunately the girls could not use the windy conditions to there advantage.

The girls kept battling right to the end but Hib’s came out on top and proceeded to the finals of the League cup.
