With just one week to go until the release of the Season 2018/19 fixtures, preparations are continuing at full pace for the new campaign.

Paul Hartley, alongside Head of Recruitment, Richard Mitchell have been working hard behind the scenes to recruit new players ahead of the return for pre-season training on Wednesday 20th June.

The Falkirk boss has spoken to a number of targets in recent weeks and is hopeful of concluding deals for some of these players over the course of the coming week.

Speaking to, Hartley said: “We have been working extremely hard on bringing players in to the club since the end of last season and the process in allowing us to identify these targets has been ongoing since January.

“Part of our activity means that we are dealing in a different market and to be fair to English clubs, players and agents, their season finished later than ours which means that many are still on holiday at present.

“We have set our targets high and in order to attract the calibre of player we are looking for to the club we may need to wait slightly longer to get deals over the line.

“Our competitive season begins on the 14th July and our league season 4th August, we will be raring to go by then.

“I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank all of our supporters who have already purchased their season tickets in the early bird period. We are fast approaching 1,000 sales which, considering we are only one week in, is terrific.

“The Falkirk support have been magnificent with me since I came here and I am really excited about delivering a team which will make them proud.”

2018/19 Season Tickets remain on sale from The Club Shop which is open tomorrow from 10am – 1pm and online at
