DICK Campbell’s side took away another three points on Saturday with a 4-0 win against Stenhousemuir.

First half goals came courtesy of Stephen Tulloch and an Iain Campbell penalty while Danny Denholm and Chris Templeman secured the win in the second half.

After a fairly uneventful first half hour, Tulloch’s 18-yard strike in the 37th minute opened the scoring.

Just on half-time Stenhousemuir defender Ross McMillan brought down Gavin Swankie in the box and Iain Campbell stepped up to slot away the penalty.

Just after the hour mark Denholm lobbed the ball in to make it 3-0.

With the win seemingly secured Templeman made sure of it in the last gasps of the game with his 12-yard header.

Meanwhile, the under 19 side bagged the three points in their opening home league encounter against Cowdenbeath at Station Park last Monday night.

This was despite going one down after just thirty seconds.

They also missed a golden opportunity to level matters just on the half-time whistle when the visiting ‘keeper saved a tame spot kick effort.

However, second half strikes from substitute Gavin Thomson just five minutes after entering the fray and Liam McIntosh secured a 2-1 success.

This Sunday the youngsters head west to tackle Airdrie United.

The ‘Loons’ newest signing, Odmar Faroe, has been called up to the Faroese squad for a World Cup qualifying tie against Germany in Hanover on Friday, September 7.

If selected for the game, Odmar would certainly be the first Station Park player to take part in a game at such a level.

This Saturday and Sunday the ‘Loons’ coaching and playing staff will enjoy a rare weekend off after a hectic 10 weeks since training began as Scotland begin their World Cup campaign with a home game against Serbia.

However, the Forfar players will keep their fitness levels in trim prior to the much anticipated visit of Brechin City on September 15 with a couple of training sessions as well as closed door friendlies on Station Park’s G3 surface against a Livingston XI and near neighbours Montrose.

Both of these games will in all probability see the six or seven players who have not featured in Dick’s starting line-up in recent weeks given a full 90 minutes.

The club had intended entering a side in a revamped midweek Reserve League East this season but it now looks as if due to lack of participants this will not now go ahead.
