Forfar chairman Alastair Donald says everyone at Station Park is determined to keep plugging away as the Loons look to end the year on top of League One.
Dick Campbell’s men slipped off top spot after a 1-1 draw at home to Airdrieonians at the weekend but they are still there or thereabouts in the title race heading into the festive fixtures – starting with a trip to Peterhead on Saturday.
Chairman Donald, who oversaw the club’s final board meeting of the year earlier this week, has been delighted with progress on and off the park, and hopes that will continue into the New Year.
“The heady days at the start of our season with home wins over Dunfermline and Morton will live with me for a long time,” he said, reflecting on another busy year for the Angus club.
“However, the next few weeks will have a huge bearing on our season and as I keep saying no-one is getting carried away or having ideas above our station.
“We will simply keep our heads down and keep working.”
One of the high points of the year at Station Park was the opening of the club’s new hospitality facilities, something else the chairman is immensely proud of.
“I will be honest enough to say that I still pinch myself when I walk about it and take in just exactly what we have done here,” he continued.
“The bar on match days continues to go from strength to strength and the revenue from this will eventually manifest itself on the pitch by way of new players.
“This may take a year or two but mark my words it will have a bearing on the club finances for years to come.”
