Moving forward

Forfar Athletic manager Dick Campbell is delighted to be so “well-forward” in developing his squad for the 2012/13 season (writes Sarah McLean).

Since last week Iain Campbell has put pen to paper to commit himself to the Loons for another season.

And with a number of trialists in training with the club at the moment, the manager is confident he will secure more names in the near future.

Meanwhile, Forfar Athletic are believed to be interested in bringing back youngster Dale Hilson on a further loan spell from Dundee United. Campbell said that this is hopeful to go ahead if all parties are agreed.

With the squad back in training, Campbell is pleased so far but is now intending to “Step it up a bit.”

Without facilities at Station Park for the time being, the squad have been training at Aberdour with plans to move onto Kilgraston before returning back to Dundee.

Campbell added: “David Mowat is back in training with us. He has a work commitment which means he won’t be able to join us until October but in the meanwhile he is taking part in pre-season training.”
