It proved to be quite an end to the season for the Club as the Celts Men’s team secured the West Riding County FA Cup for the first time in ten years winning 4-2 on penalties against Tadcaster Albion. There was even more good news as the team also achieved promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division via the Play-Offs in a dramatic 4-2 Extra-time victory over West Yorkshire rivals Ossett Town.
Success wasn’t just confined to the Men’s First team, as the Celts Ladies earned promotion to the North East Regional League Premier Division, losing just one of their eighteen league fixtures. The Ladies Under 18s also had a great season achieving a league and cup double, underlining the strength of the women’s section at Farsley. The Ladies though are looking to establish further Open-aged sides and anyone interested should contact Head of Women’s Football Adrian Sparrow, tel: 0113 2557292 (email: email@example.com)
With the football season finished, Throstle Nest hosted two big events in May. The first saw the holding of a Charity match between Leeds General Infirmary and St. James Hospital to raise funds for the Day One Trauma Care Unit. In a fun packed day featuring two matches between the respective hospitals, nearly £1,500 was raised for the Unit.
Then in mid-May the Club held its Junior Football Tournament, featuring numerous local boys and girls clubs. It was an incredibly well supported event which ran smoothly thanks to the hard-work of the coaches and a whole host of Club Volunteers, as well as the generous sponsorship of various local businesses.
Indeed with the Men’s and Ladies First-teams gaining promotion, leading to higher profiles within the country and the game next season, why not be part of the journey and consider sponsoring the Club in some form. Farsley Celtic has a range of sponsorship opportunities suitable for individuals, pubs, local, national or international businesses. To find out more about the Club’s various packages, please contact the Club’s Commercial Manager, Michael Binns, tel: 0113 2557292.
Whilst football won’t resume at Throstle Nest until July, when pre-season friendlies will commence, the Clubhouse is open during the evenings and the function rooms are also available for hire, bookable through Bar and Facilities Manager, Rob Yardley, tel: 0113 2557292
