FARSLEY CELTIC 2 NANTWICH TOWN 0
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.
