LOONS gaffer Dick Campbell was disappointed with his side’s 3-1 loss to Stranraer on Saturday that meant Forfar finished the campaign in seventh place in Scottish League One.

But Campbell believes his outfit have enjoyed a great season nonetheless after a series of “astonishing” performances.

He said: “I’m very disappointed in the result but it didn’t make any difference with the teams all about us. We’ve taken Dundee to extra time at Dens Park. We’re one of the few teams to beat Rangers all year. We got to the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup for the third time in five years.

“Some of our performances this year have been astonishing, at home to Dunfermline, the Rangers and Stenny games, going to Brechin at Hogmanay and winning so comfortably.”
