Farsley Celtic entertain York City in final home pre-season clash

Farsley Celtic again host higher league opposition in the form of York City on Tuesday evening in the final pre-season home match before the start of the 2023/24 season.

The Minstermen will head across to The Citadel following trips to Tadcaster Albion (where City won 4-0) on Saturday afternoon and Selby Town on Monday evening.  

It’s been all change at the new-look Farsley Celtic, who have signed 11 new players and a new management team and playing style.

They head into the game against the Minstermen following their 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield Town ‘B’ at the weekend, and they’ll be hoping to improve on their early performances in pre-season after failing to beat Silsden, Brighouse Town or FC Halifax Town.

Farsley head coach and former York City striker Clayton Donaldson said he was encouraged by the stronger performance on Saturday as the new squad continues to bond and gel together with a new-look style being integrated.

He’s hoping the side will build on a more positive first half performance against Huddersfield on Saturday, which saw winger Marley Blair scoring his first goal for the club after joining from the Icelandic Premier League.

“I’ve settled into my new environment really well and this has been helped by everyone connected to the club helping me to do so and I can’t thank them enough,” he added.

The Celts will have a fully fit squad to choose from on Tuesday providing there are no knocks or injuries sustained from the fixture against Huddersfield on Saturday.
