The SWPL1 is set to begin again this weekend after being forced to stop in December due to the pandemic. With games being broadcasted every Sunday now as well as a new SWPL1 highlights show on Sunday nights, it’s an exciting time for the girls to be back in action.
Speaking about Forfar Farmington’s first fixture back against Motherwell, manager Kevin McGreskin said: “It’s great we’re all dead excited about it. We had a spell where we had nothing happening there and as I keep saying we understand the bigger picture and the reasons why, but it is a bit frustrating because you just want to get back.
“We got the go ahead to start training again last week so that’s been good, and the first competitive match is coming up on Sunday so we’re all very excited.”
When speaking about what fans could expect from the club for the rest of the season McGreskin said: “Hopefully goals and wins and just us trying to do our best and trying to build on the good first half of the season we had to see if we can take it a little step further.
“It’ll be challenging obviously, the top three kind of take care of themselves (Rangers, Celtic and Glasgow City) so really, we’re trying to see if we can break in around Hibs and Spartans and see if we can get in among that mix.
“We’d love to try see if we could finish fourth but we’re also realistic that Hearts and Motherwell are going to be competitive as well, so we need to be at our best to try stay above them. It should be exciting, hopefully lots of good matches, lots of exciting matches and we want to accumulate as many points as we can.”
If all goes well this weekend for Forfar, they could see themselves move into sixth and potentially fifth in the table. McGreskin said: “It would be great to get there into fifth that would be ideal and a good starting point for this round of games. Obviously, we want to go down there and give a good account of ourselves. “We know Motherwell will be well prepared. We know they’ve had their coaching change but Stuart and Willy will have them well organised and up for it so we have to go down there and play the very best we can, and we’ll give ourselves the best chance we can in the way of points.”
