Farsley Celtic Win Promotion

Farsley Celtic defeated local rivals Ossett Town 4-2 to win promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Farsley Celtic won promotion in dramatic style as a late Richard Marshall equaliser sent the game to extra time before terrific strikes from Ryan Watson and James Walshaw, with his fiftieth strike of the season, sent Farsley into the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Earlier Adam Clayton had headed Farsley in front before Ossett Town completed a dramatic turnaround through a Danny Frost brace, however ultimately Farsley had too much for their opponents as they earned a terrific 4-2 victory.

Victorious Manager Neil Parsley said ”I think we’ve played great football this season, we’ve scored 108 league goals, playing a brand of football we like to play. Today’s a reward for the players who’ve dug in when we seemed to be down and out and it’s a great feeling.”

Both sides had chances in the first half however failed to convert. Farsley had a great chance early on as Paul Walker whipped in a free-kick towards James Walshaw however he failed to direct his effort into the back of the net. On the stroke of halftime Danny Frost produced a fabulous save from Farsley shot stopper Graeme McKibbin as he fired towards the top corner on the turn, only for McKibbin to claw the ball away.

Farsley deservedly took the lead early on in the second half after a succession of corners, with Lewis Nightingale’s excellent delivery finding the unmarked Adam Clayton, the centre half powering home for his fifteenth goal of the campaign.

As Ossett went searching for an equaliser, Farsley sat deeper. Ossett were rewarded with twenty minutes remaining as Nathan Curtis flicked the ball through to Danny Frost who this time got the better of McKibbin as he slotted home. The turnaround was then completed in the 87th minute as Martin Pembleton found Danny Frost who lobbed the ball over McKibbin to seemingly break Farsley hearts.

Due to an earlier injury to referee Andrew Sykes who was replaced by Michael Barlow, there were seven minutes of added time which gave Farsley real hope. And in the second of those Richard Marshall turned home at the back post after Aiden Savory’s low cross somehow made it’s way into his path, which sent the game into extra time.

That equaliser seemed to knock the stuffing out of Ossett heading into extra-time, and Manager Grant Black said “I feel disappointed, deflated, gutted for the lads more than anything. We’ve done things this season nobody expected and we should be proud of ourselves. We were four minutes away from winning it but their equaliser just took it out of us.”

The first period of extra time was a cagey affair with the best chance falling to Ossett’s Nathan Curtis who had his shot tipped around the post by Graeme McKibbin.

Ryan Watson then handed Farsley the crucial advantage in the second period as from 25 yards out he lashed the ball into the top corner, despite Ossett goalkeeper Leigh Overton getting a hand to the ball.

Just two minutes later the victory and promotion was all but secured as the division’s top scorer James Walshaw cut in on his left foot, skipping past Ossett defenders before curling a superb strike into the top corner to secure his fiftieth goal of the season in style, and spark jubilant celebrations amongst the bumper home crowd.
