Farsley Celtic put in an eminent attack show as they destroyed Droylsden 6-0 with six different players getting on the score sheet.
Farsley had a great opportunity early on as Lewis Nightingale went on a mazy dribble before pulling back for Paul Walker who’s effort was fantastically saved by Droylsden ‘keeper Steven James. Droylsden captain Domaine Rouse then led a counterattack and ended up through on goal only for him to poke his effort inches wide of the upright. Shortly after Farsley took the lead as James stumbled a Jordan Deacey corner before Aiden Savory hooked onto the loose ball and slotted home. Domaine Rouse once again caused problems for the Farsley defence as he got himself one on one with Tom Taylor however this time Taylor made a smart save down to his left to preserve Celtic’s advantage.
Droylsden then yielded a soft goal as Farsley doubled their lead when the unmarked Paddy Miller headed home Nightingale’s free-kick. Moments later Nightingale got a goal for himself as he played a sharp one, two with Walker before tapping home from a few yards out. Chris Howarth then finished the first half rout as he gathered a loose ball and tucked it into the back of the net to make it 4-0.
Early on in the second half Farsley earned themselves a penalty after Jacob Wood handled the ball in the box. Aaron Hardy duly converted to extend Farsley’s lead over The Bloods to five. Substitute Leon Osborne then scored just seconds after coming on when Nightingale put him through on goal and he coolly completed into the bottom corner. A short while later Farsley almost made it seven as James made a magnificent save from Walker’s effort before Osborne expanded the rebound over the stand. What’s more, with the last shot of the game Rouse kept it to six as he headed Robbie O’Brien’s fierce volley off the line.
