Financial boost for The Loons

Forfar Athletic’s funds received a much needed and welcome cash boost following two highly successful events over the weekend.

On Sunday an audience in excess of 600 attended a superbly organised Scottish Spectacular Concert in the Reid Hall. Former vice-chairman Mike McEwan and his wife, Helen, are to be congratulated yet again for their efforts in pulling in a handful of great entertainers from as far afield as Newcastle for the event which raised a substantial four figure sum.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Mike is already well ahead with plans for his next concert on Sunday, March 17 of next year.

On the Saturday evening the Supporters’ Club staged a race night in the Plough Inn which, despite a few late call-offs from race goers, still saw a tidy sum in excess of £1,000 raised.

President Linda Craik, secretary Laura Sutherland and their fellow committee members are to be congratulated on their hard work in gathering sponsors etc. and putting the night together.

On the pitch the action continues this Saturday when Forfar travel the short distance to Brechin for the second derby of the season - see page 40 for details.
