The 2022/23 season comes to a conclusion this Saturday as Farsley Celtic travel to Spennymoor looking to avoid the drop.
It’s a day of massive importance in the National League North as the Celts and other teams battling to stay in the league learn of their fate.
The Celts go into the final day with momentum behind them after a crucial 2-1 win against Gloucester City at the Citadel last Saturday which took them three points clear of the drop zone.
It was a seismic result following the disappointment of losing 2-0 to relegation rivals Blyth Spartans in the week leading up to the match, with the Celts needing just a single point from the Spennymoor match to guarantee their survival.
If Farsley are to lose at Spennymoor however, then they will be hoping Hereford and Kidderminster Harriers can do them a favour as they face Blyth and Kettering Town respectively.
Spennymoor head into the match in good form after taking nine points out of nine in the previous three matches which included wins over Banbury United, Southport and Kettering.
Spennymoor’s recent results mean they are still in with a shout when it comes to the race for the play-offs, sitting in 12th place but just two points off seventh-placed Buxton.
They will be looking for all three points to give them the best chance at sneaking into the top seven on the last day.
It will be an emotional day for everyone associated with Farsley Celtic, as we say thank you to Dave Syers who will play his last match for the Celts before hanging up his boots as Celt legend.
Russ Wilcox has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s match.
Isaac Assenso has a chance of being involved whilst the match comes too early for Luke Parkin and Bobby Johnson.
