Forfar Farmington leading the way during COVID-19 pandemic

Wednesday evening saw success for Forfar Farmington despite the 2-1 defeat to Hearts.

With Scottish Government restrictions now in Level 2, Scottish football clubs are able to welcome fans again with 250 the maximum amount for spectators at the moment. 

Only residents in Glasgow City & Moray are prohibited for the time being to physically being in grounds due to both areas still in Level 3 restrictions. 

Off the park during this COVID-19 pandemic, Forfar Farmington have led the way.  Back in October, the club put on a live stream for friendlies against Dundee United & Aberdeen respectively before the season commenced at home to Motherwell, the first club in Scottish Women’s Football circles to introduce live streaming for women’s football followers. 

This was then followed by the introduction of fans on Wednesday evening for the match at home to Hearts with a good attendance of die-hard Forfar supporters back to their beloved Station Park alongside some ground hoppers who witnessed their 1st physical game in over 400 days.   

With much smaller resources compared to other sides in the league, we can always rely on volunteers to pull the stops out and Forfar Farmington Football Club would like to thank the spectators who attended on Wednesday alongside the volunteers who have helped the club throughout this tough time. 

Forfar Farmington Chairperson Nicola McBride said, “We were delighted to get the green light to welcome fans back, it means a lot to the club and especially the players on the pitch.  Although there are many restrictions to follow we are grateful to the support we have from our own committee members and club covid offiers.  It was important to us to get fans in as soon as we could therefore made sure we had the necessary processes in place to make this happen.  Delighted that we had no issues during the match.  Thanks to all those who came along to support us last night.”
