‘Loons’ pull out of proposed new Reserve League structure

Friday, 11 May 2018 09:30

After lengthy deliberations at management and board level, Forfar Athletic have advised the SPFL that they will not be entering a team next season in the proposed midweek Reserve League.

The ‘Loons’ who had been the only one of the Angus clubs to have entered a team in the SPFL Development League structure over the past three seasons and would certainly have continued to do so had Project Brave not intervened and brought an end to league football at this level/age group.

On reflection however it has been decided that to have a large enough pool to be competitive at Reserve League level would be a ‘bridge to far’ for the club’s resources and to be quite honest finances at this time.

Instead for at least one season as the situation will continually be reviewed, all efforts will be focused on putting a very competitive first team squad on the pitch.

Jim Weir will instead arrange midweek friendly fixtures as and when required to keep fringe players and others involved.

This was not a decision taken lightly by those involved at the highest level within the club and in fact has in many ways been taken with a ‘heavy heart.’

‘Loons’ Directors would like to say a collective thank you at this juncture to all who have been involved and supported the Development side over the past few years.
