Danny Ellis Signs New Contract

By Thomas Ritchie

We are delighted to announce that Farsley Celtic captain Danny Ellis has committed his future to the club for the 2019/20 season.

“The club and supporters have been great to me” Danny Ellis

Ellis joined the club from Harrogate Town in 2017, and the defender has since captained the club to the West Riding County Cup and Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division, making 86 appearances in the process.

The ex-Guiseley man has vast experience playing in the National League North, having played at step two for a number of years with the Nethermoor Park club, and also with Harrogate.

On signing his new deal, the Celts’ captain said: “On a personal level I am really happy at Farsley Celtic, and I am delighted to have signed on for another season.

“Last season was an unbelievable achievement; we had pretty much been in the mix from the start and maintained that form all the way through.

“Even with the loss of important players through injury, it just showed the togetherness and spirit we have.

“Everyone said that we wouldn’t be able to maintain that form but the manager Lakey (Adam Lakeland) told us every time, ‘you boys are the best in the league’, and that we should believe it.

“After losing the six points with the unfortunate North Ferriby situation, and knowing that South Shields were right behind us, we still showed how mentally strong and together we are.

“I feel honoured to captain Farsley Celtic, the club and supporters have been great to me, and from all the players I’d like to say thank you and please keep up the fantastic support, it is massive for us.

“I can't wait to for the season to start now, it's going to be tough but also it’s an exciting time for the club.

“The National League North is a tough league and having spent the majority of my career in it there are some very strong teams in it and big clubs to compete with.

“But with the momentum and spirit we have as a team it will give us a good chance next season.”
