Celtalk returns to Pudsey.com
  After a long absence over the Christmas and New Year period Pudsey.com is pleased to be once again bringing all the latest from Farsley Celtic.


The fourth meeting between the clubs this season ended with honours even after a last gasp strike from the visitors secured a 2-2 draw.

Bridlington started brightly and twice went close in the opening 15 minutes but they had to wait until just before half-time for their breakthrough. A goalmouth scramble saw the ball fall kindly for Craig Burdick who made no mistake from the edge of the box.

The Celts came out with all guns blazing in the second half and slowly began to stamp their authority in the windy conditions. Roy Stammar and Mark Bett were both causing problems for the visitors and it was the latter who struck a pinpoint free kick into the net on 66 minutes to level matters.

With 13 minutes left Andy Shields nipped in at the far post to guide the ball home from a free kick but the Celts buckled under late pressure and Paul Palmer secured a point for the east coast side with a good finish from a corner on 87 minutes.

The result leaves the Celts in 8th place in the Unibond League table on 45 points. They are 11 points off leaders Hyde United but have four games in hand.

It's back to cup action on Tuesday for Lee Sinnott's side as they play host to Glasshoughton Welfare in the West Riding County Cup quarter-finals (kick-off 7.45pm).

Next Saturday the Celts travel to struggling Rossendale United before hosting Colwyn Bay on Saturday 21st February at Throstle Nest.
