Formartine United resolves trouble over Arms

Despite thirty years of going strong with the same club badge, Formartine United in Aberdeen has now been forced to petition for the use of a set of Arms after a complainant informed the Court of the Lord Lyon that the team was illegally using the saltire and lion rampant in its badge.

The full story is at www.pressandjournal.co.uk/Article.aspx/1954119, whilst the football club's response is noted at www.formartineunited.co.uk/news.asp. In its response the club's chairman Atholl Cadger stated "Formartine United have decided to petition the Court of the Lord Lyon for a grant of arms within the next 28 days. The Procurator Fiscal has been very accommodating over the last few weeks which the Club fully appreciates."
