SWPL side Forfar Farmington have made their first signings of 2013, with the return of Holly Napier and Nivana Crighton to the club.

The locally based pair re-join the club from Celtic, having moved south in the opening months of the 2010 season.

Striker Napier, a Scotland youth internationalist, started her career with a highly successfully Arbroath Inchcape girls side where she was a prolific goal scorer alongside new teammate Abbi Grant. Speaking on her return to Farmington Holly said: “Having had a couple of training sessions, I’ve now met most of the girls and I really can’t wait for the season to get started. The standard of the players is really high and there is going to be real competition for places. Hopefully that will help us match up to, and maybe improve, on last season’s performance”.

Wide player Crighton mimics a number of the 1st teams longest serving players, having had a long career with the club’s youth sides. A spell at Celtic saw Nivana gain youth international recognition, and feature for the Glasgow club’s SWPL side on a number of occasions.  “I’m really happy to be back at Forfar” explains Nivana. “Everything has been great and it’s really easy to get excited about the coming season which will hopefully be another successful one for the team”.

Head Coach Mark Nisbet was understandably delighted to have both players back at the club, commenting “Both players have developed during their spell at Celtic, and return to us with the benefit of additional valuable experience of SWPL football. I’m excited to be working with them and looking forward to helping them both develop further as players”
