Farsley Celtic have received the accolade of being chosen as the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League ‘Community Club of the Year’ award, writes Farsley Celtic’s Robert Winterbottom.

The honour was announced at the league annual awards dinner in Blackpool.

After receiving nominations from many of the league’s 68 clubs, Farsley Celtic’s close links with the local community were highlighted. The club was described as ‘the stand out case’ of all the clubs nominated.

The award – the ‘Peter Swales Shield’ – is named after the former Manchester City chairman, who was a founder of the Northern Premier League.

Farsley chief executive Joshua Greaves said:

“This is a great achievement for all involved at the club to win the trophy in its inaugural season. The award is recognition for all the hard work that so many people at the football club do to involve many different elements of the local community.”

Chairman John Palmer added:

“I would like to thank all those concerned, especially the effort that Josh puts in to promote this wonderful community club.”
