Work continues on the Forfar Athletic hospitality suite.

The erection of the new Forfar Athletic Hospitality Complex took a huge step forward last week as the seven sections were all dropped into place.

Four sections arrived at Station Park on Thursday before the final three were added on Friday.

The exterior of the units still require flashings, doors and window grilles to be fitted.

Significant work on the interior of the set-up will also be required.

Passageways between individual lounges and the Match Day Bar area will undergo extended work.

The club remains confident that the existing deadlines will be met in plenty of time ahead of the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

This new suite was made possible by the pledging of a £25,000 sum from local businesses and represents the third consecutive season of significant investment in the facilities at Station Park.

Designed by Dundee firm James F Stephen Architects, the suite is set to quadruple the club’s matchday capabilities. The club is eager to hear from anyone interested in volunteering to work in the matchday experience, be it in bar work or other requirements.

Meanwhile club officials have revealed they are delighted with the uptake in season ticket sales ahead of the new campaign.

Tickets will be available from the secretary’s office at Station Park prior to kick-off at the pre-season fixtures against Inverurie Loco Works, Livingston and Falkirk but they will not be available against Dundee United.

Supporters are also reminded that the opening fixture of pre-season on Tuesday, July 8 has a 7.45 p.m. kick-off.

Admission prices are £5 for adults and £3 for over 65s and under 17s.

Season ticket holders should utilise voucher one.
