Fars­ley de­lighted af­ter Ben’s blun­der


The Non-League Football Paper - - NPL PREMIER - By Paul Hatt

THE CELTS se­cured a hard earned three points against Mick­leover Sports cour­tesy of a first-half own goal from Ben Turner just af­ter the half-hour mark.

Fars­ley started the brighter of the two sides creat­ing a cou­ple of good op­por­tu­ni­ties in the open­ing ten min­utes, with Nathan Cart­man first curl­ing wide from a Paul Walker lay-back and then driv­ing over the bar af­ter a Jimmy Spencer knock-down.

Mick­leover though started to get a foothold in the game around the half­way mark of the first-half and a com­mu­ni­ca­tion er­ror by the Celts de­fence let Roberts in for Sports, but his chip drifted wide.

Just af­ter the half-hour mark, Fars­ley took the lead, when a ball in from Will Hay­hurst was put into his own net by de­fender Turner.

The Celts then suf­fered a blow shortly be­fore the break, with Nathan Turner stretchered off with what looked a se­ri­ous knee in­jury.

In the sec­ond-half, Spencer con­tin­ued to be at the heart of all the best at­tack­ing mo­ments for Fars­ley, caus­ing Sports cen­tre back pair­ing prob­lems with his con­trol and knock-downs.

Mick­leover though threat­ened on the break and fif­teen min­utes from time Kyle Tren­erry in the Celts goals had to be at his best to beat away a Nathan Jar­man strike but the hosts de­servedly held on.

STAR MAN: Jimmy Spencer (Fars­ley) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
