FARSLEY Celtic made it three wins in a row as James Walshaw hit a brace.

In a scrappy first half ham­pered by the blus­tery con­di­tions, Nantwich came clos­est to open­ing the scor­ing as Harry Clay­ton saw his ef­fort saved by Graeme McKib­bin.

Farsley clicked into gear at the start of the sec­ond half with Walshaw head­ing Luke Parkin’s cor­ner just wide, be­fore the lat­ter fired an ef­fort just over the cross­bar.

Parkin came close again as he was played in by Adam Por­ritt, how­ever he was de­nied by an ex­cel­lent stop.

Al­most im­me­di­ately af­ter Farsley man­aged to break the dead­lock as Paul Walker helped the ball onto Walshaw who was on hand to slide home.

Farsley con­tin­ued to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties and should have sealed the game, as Ben Atkin­son crossed the ball to a wide-open Walshaw who sliced wide.

How­ever, he did dou­ble Farsley’s lead as he was fed by Adam Por­ritt and calmly lobbed Nantwich shot stop­per Quinn.

Sub­sti­tute Mark Bett al­most added the ic­ing to the cake in stop­page time, as his ef­fort was su­perbly saved by Quinn fol­low­ing Parkin’s cross.
