Sophie Milligan Departs

The club bid farewell to popular defender Sophie Milligan recently as she departs for pastures new in Australia this week.

24 year old Milligan joined the club in October 2014, making her debut in an away defeat to Hutchison Vale. The following season saw Milligan play seventeen times in the great escape, featuring at both right back and centre back.

Milligan has been almost ever present this season, featuring in 22 games with only one of these coming as a substitute. Overall the former Robert Gordon University player has made 41 appearances in a royal blue shirt, starting 38 times with three substitute appearances.

The Dundonian has never scored in a competitive game, however she had netted in friendly games against St Andrew University and Glasgow Girls.

Speaking recently, the versatile defender was unsure how long her spell in Australia will last, although she would be open to a return to Farmington should she ever return to Scotland.

“I would be more than happy to come back to Farmington. The club is another wee family to me and there’s not another bunch of girls I’d rather get back on the pitch with. Apart from wanting to play football with my mates again the club has a great set up and ethos for developing girls and maintaining a high level once they reach the premier team.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone throughout the club in making my time at Forfar better than I could have imagined.”

Everyone at Forfar Farmington would like to wish Sophie all the best with her future and thank her for her sterling efforts when playing for the club.
