Farsley Celtic on course for back-to-back promotions

Celts set their eyes on another promotion

After winning the play-offs last season to secure promotion to the EvoStik Premier Division, Leeds based none-league club Farsley Celtic look to be on the up yet again.

A 3-0 win over Marine at Throstle Nest on Saturday secured the Villagers a play-off place and chance to win promotion to the National League North.

Goals delivered by Nathan Cartman, Luke Parkin and Isaac Baldwin helped Farsley to what was a fairly comfortable victory in front of over 300 spectators.

After Saturdays win, Celts manager Adam Lakeland told farsleyceltic.com, “I’m delighted that we’ve won, there was a bit of pressure on us today, like there has over the past couple of months with other sides having well documented games in hand.”

“Nobody’s given us a chance all season.” he added.

“we’ve shown in over 46 games that we’re a good team. To get 80 points in this league takes some doing, and as a newly promoted side we should be incredibly proud.”

Farsley will now travel to Ashton United on Tuesday night to kick off their play-off campaign, as they look for a consecutive promotion and a chance to play in the National League North next season.
