On the pitch, with their new First XV coach, Paul Larter, having successfully integrated a string of prodigious teenage talent into his side, the Scottish Championship A team have won their last three games against Cartha, Whitecraigs and Dumfries, and are one of four clubs separated by just three points at the top of the division.
But perhaps it is developments off the field which offer most hope for the future of the Falkirk fraternity. Their long-term president, Alex McQuade, who has now assumed the role in an honorary capacity, can recall the days when his charges were in the seventh tier of the old National Leagues. But the times they are a-changing, and the Camelon-based collective are determined to push on with their attempt to progress to the RBS Premiership.
"We are running 10 teams at the moment, there are thriving numbers in all the different age groups, and we are proud of the fact we have 220 registered players in our youth section," said McQuade, who has been an irrepressible motivator within his beloved club for almost two decades. The numbers involved present challenges in terms of unearthing coaches and volunteers to work with all these kids and find them games at Sunnyside. But it is a nice problem to have.
"Better still, we learned last week that we have been successful in our funding application to create a new Academy at Falkirk, and we will be pressing ahead with that. This will take players from 16 onwards and give them help with strength and conditioning, dietary information, and everything else to help them on the path to a professional career.
"It will be based at our new facilities and we will be adding a gym and changing rooms and appointing an Academy coach, who will be involved in mentoring the youngsters after school. It shows that we are committed to thinking not just a few weeks or months ahead, but planning to help the next generation."
Larter, for his part, is similarly ambitious and explained how his side's fortunes were transformed, following an unexpected home loss to Ardrossan Acads last month.
"We went down 32-25 and it was a turning point, because the boys took a long, hard look at themselves, after what was an unacceptable performance," said Larter. "We have brought in some really promising guys, such as [stand-off] Ewan Rooney and [flanker] Ross Denny, both of whom are just 18, and there is a terrific buzz round the place, because we know we have pushed ourselves back into contention for promotion. We face Hamilton on Saturday - we both have 30 points - and Cartha and Marr, who are first and second, also meet, so it could be a very important afternoon. There is an awful long way to go, but we are confident we can be in there and challenging for the whole season."
It adds up to a potent platform which Falkirk can use as the catalyst for advancement in the next decade. Many of their counterparts must be wishing they had comparable riches.
