Club Challenge – FClub Road to Hampden

Your support is appreciated, we want to show our local community how much we care,

With all football suspended till further notice and to help maintain player fitness, we thought we could set a challenge for all FClub players, family members and background staff to raise much needed funds which will be donated to 4 local charities linked to the NHS and within our community. (Nominated by yourself, leave a comment)

The challenge is called the ‘FClub Road to Hampden’ where the distance of 157km from Forfar to our national stadium Hampden, is to be complete by each person/family group completing 5km each day for 30days with the 31st day being 7km. This can be done as a walk, run or cycle but can only be counted as 5km per day no matter how much over the 5km the person/family group do that day. This will all start on the 1st May and finish on the 31st May.

We encourage all your players and coaches to get on board. We want to see you all getting out for your daily exercise.

SWPL 1 | New Signing – Jade Lindsay

The club are thrilled to announce Northern Ireland international Jade Lindsay as our fifth new signing as we gear up for the opening competitive match on Sunday v Kilmarnock Ladies in the SWPL League Cup.

After two seasons at Celtic Women, Jade made the move to Hamilton Accies in 2016 where she enjoyed an SWPL2 title win in her first season.

Having left Accies recently, Head Coach Ryan McConville made contact and secured Jade for the 2020 season.

Jade made her Northern Ireland debut in Nov 2015 against Switzerland in the European Qualifiers.  She is hoping to catch NI manager, Kenny Shiels eye with her performances in SWPL1 this season and add to her 15 caps, having now fully recovered from an injury in May last year.

Ryan McConville said “I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to add such an experienced player to our squad, when I found out it could be possible to bring her in I jumped at the opportunity. Jade brings high standards , professionalism and a maturity that we need here at Farmington and I think she will be a great fit for our squad going into the season ahead.

I hope we will help her get back into the international setup and from what I have seen pretty early in working with her she is definitely worthy wearing that green and white jersey again especially the way our new national team manager  now wants to play.”

SBSSWPL1 | Forfar Farmington 1 v 4 Hibernian

The team couldn’t make it three games without defeat to end the season on Sunday, but there were positives to take with a much improved score line from the last Hibs game and a goal of the season contender from Haley Kern being the highlights in Nathan Flight’s last game in charge.

Hibs deserved their 4-1 win on the day and the squad can now look forward to a short break before the build up to another season of SWPL1 football commences in 2020.

Flight moves on

CLUB STATEMENT

Yesterday saw us say farewell to Nathan Flight our SWPL Head Coach, who has decided to move onto new challenges. It was Nathan’s last game with us at the club and we would like to take the opportunity in thanking him for his hard work and commitment over the last 2 years.

We have achieved SWPL1 status for next season and this has been possible by the efforts of his team and the hard work of the players. The youths within the club have also benefited greatly from Nathan’s involvement over the years and he will be missed by all. We wish him all the very best.
