National Recognition for ‘unsung’ hero Colin

Forfar Farmington’s Colin Brown was recognised at the Sunday Mail / McDonalds Grassroots Awards dinner held at the Scottish National Stadium in Glasgow in January.

The recently retired Forfar social worker was nominated by his players and fellow coaches in recognition of his work coaching and developing girls / women's football over a 26-year period.

Forfar Farmington was described on the awards night as one of the great success stories of grassroots football in Scotland, the organisation having started life as a humble church hall youth club and having grown into a stunning set-up that boasts a membership of 170 girls.

"Every age group is covered - all the way up to a team that plays in the women's premier league," it was explained to the audience.

Colin said the award recognised the fact that Forfar Farmington was in the throes of becoming one of the elite women's football clubs in Scotland.

"We are almost there", he added. "We now run ten teams, catering for girls from the age of eight through to the senior side, the club is backed by a strong and enthusiastic committee, and we are now very close to achieving SFA Quality Mark status.
