Forfar Farmington Women 6 v 2 Stonehaven Ladies

The squad knew what was required yesterday as we travelled to Stonehaven, knowing a point would clinch the title and right from the first whistle, they were brilliant. Just 4 minutes in, Alex Fox played a through ball to Cheryl Kilcoyne, who created a yard of space before shooting from distance into the bottom left hand corner.
The second goal came not long after when Caitlin Colquhoun played a 30 yard pass right through the Stonehaven team. Cheryl did well to run in behind, take a touch and fire the ball into the bottom left hand corner to make it 0-2.
We pushed and pushed, enjoying the majority of possession and could have scored several more but were unlucky in the final third.
We did make it 0-3 when Alex found Chloe Laird at the back post from a corner kick and she bulleted in the header.
Not long after, Chloe got her second goal of the game from another corner kick as she knocked home the loose ball after a scramble in the 6 yard box.
HT 0-4
In the second half, Forfar made 7 changes which meant the squad all got a run out and everyone gave 100% and worked together as a team.
Cheryl picked the ball up in the middle of the park, beat a couple of the Stonehaven players before playing Claire Hendry through on goal. Claire took the ball around the keeper before passing the ball into the empty net.
Not long after, Claire had a fantastic shot saved by the Stonehaven keeper, however Chloe Dunn reacted quickest and slotted the ball home to make it 0-6.
Stonehaven made the most of their opportunities when a loose ball was played in behind the our defence. The Stonehaven player shot to which Leah Wood saved, however the keeper couldn’t prevent the second shot that came right after, 1-6.
Stonehaven were then awarded a penalty for a handball in the box which was well converted to finish the scoring 2-6.
The 3 points meant that we are BIFFA SWFL North League Champions 🏆
Thank you to all our supporters for making the trip to Mineralwell Park 💙👍.

Return to Senior League

We were delighted to see the return of senior football to our pathway last weekend. If you’d like to find out more contact

Forfar Farmington Women v Dryburgh

For the team’s first outing together experienced players, returning players & new players joined together for the newly formed SWFL Farmington Womens squad. We were eager to get going!

Due to the recent snow we were able to move the match onto the astro at Forfar Community Campus. The sun was beaming and the wind was with us in the first half.

Dryburgh scored an early goal but if anything this spurred everyone on. The team had some good spells, our keeper had some phenomenal saves but we just couldn’t take our chances. Dryburgh took their chances with the wind and with a bit of miscommunication on our side we leaked a few goals in the second half.

Coach Stuart O’Brien commented “The game ended with a 5-0 loss but without sounding cliche, I am proud and happy enough with the performance and we know what we need to work on in the next few weeks at training. We did gel together at times as a team but Dryburgh’s physique and presence made it difficult to make a breakthrough.

We play Westdyke Ladies Thistle away on Sunday.

U16 Performance Squad – Success

Congratulations to Sophie Garrigan and Amy Taylor who have been selected to join the 2022 SFA East Region U16 Performance Squad.

Both Sophie (15) and Amy (14) have come through our pathway from U9s to playing 11, 13, 15s and 17s before making the step to 19s National Performance for season 2021.   

Sophie in her 10th year with the club, enjoyed being part of BGC Scotland squad in 2019 that traveled to take on their Welsh counterparts. Coach Ian McDiarmid said “Sophie is a dedicated hard working and talented player who deserves this opportunity with the East Region programme.  As a predominately right sided full back, Sophie can play anywhere in the back four.  Working with experienced coaching staff within the programme will ultimately take her game to the next level”. 

Amy who has been with the club from age 8 coming through our juniors, was recently selected for the East Region Scottish Schools Football squad and played an inter-association match last week v West of Scotland at Toryglen.  Amy has previously been a recipient of Player of the Year for her efforts on the pitch. Coach Scott Gibson was delighted to hear of her success “Having coached Amy from a young age, she has talent and great to see her progress to this level and be given the opportunity to be part of the U16s East Region squad”. 

The performance squad programme will begin in February 2022, as additional sessions to their club training and games, the programme offers the girls the chance to attend National training camps in turn then with the chance of selection for the Scottish National Youth squads. Something I’m sure the girls will dream about.

The girls were not alone at the trials, we had number of girls take part in the trails and would congratulate them for being identified by their coaches and although they may be disappointed we hope they enjoyed the opportunity, keep working hard and enjoying your game .

Club Statement – SWPL 1 Withdrawal, 2005-2021

“SWPL1 Withdrawal : Having exhausted all options in regards player recruitment we have been unsuccessful in securing a squad ahead of 2021/22 season. We approached the SWF towards the end of last week with our concerns and out of respect for the league, associated clubs and with a heavy heart, we formally requested our withdrawal from SWPL1 on Monday.

We’d like to thank all current & past players, staff & supporters for being part of our SWPL journey going back many years and wish all other clubs the best for the season ahead.

We will now refocus our time and energy into our ever growing youth pathway as we look ahead positively to the future.”

Mowatt: We did well despite defeat

Beth Mowatt made her 1st full start this season for Forfar Farmington having forced competition with Lauren Perry & Annalisa McCann respectively. 

An injury to Perry on Wednesday evening meant an appearance for Mowatt against a very good opponent in Rangers who didn’t danger the Forfar backline much in the opening half a nour before Daina Bourma put the visitors a goal in front unmarked at the back post. 

Mowatt spoke about the game by saying, “It was really good from us all on Wednesday, everyone put in a good performance in what was a tough shift for us all.

“We competed for the ball a lot more & worked really well together despite the fact that we have a young squad.

“Having experienced players in the squad like Donna Paterson, Nicola Davidson & Alana Bruce helps develop young players like myself and we really enjoy working with these players. 

“They are really good both on & off the pitch and help the confidence in the young players, if we can play like we did tonight then we’ll give Celtic & Hibs a good game and that’s our plan.”

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.”
