Dons in town

AS the countdown to the new football season continues, Forfar fans can look forward to the visit of a strong Aberdeen side this coming Saturday.

Following the one-each home draw with Montrose last midweek (see report on page 31), at the time of going to press on Tuesday (yesterday) the Loons were preparing to host Spartans that same evening.

Ahead of the opening cup match of the new season, on Saturday, July 23, Forfar will complete their pre-season preparations with a home friendly against Dundee next Wednesday evening.
