Forfar are out of the cup

Forfar Athletic’s Under 19 side, bolstered by the inclusion of over age Jamie Bishop, gave a good account of themselves going down only 1-0 to Dundee United in the Forfarshire Cup.

United took an early lead through a Ryan Dow header and although chances were few and far between for the home side they stuck to their task with great determination, with Anton Mordente between the sticks distinguishing himself on a few occasions.

In the dying embers of the contest Forfar could have forced the tie into extra time, but no one was on hand to force the ball home in the six yard box after a right wing corner.
