After securing victory over Ossett Town in the play-off final just two weeks ago, Deacey was thanked for his efforts in a club statement promising to update fans on developments as officials continue with their preparations the 2017-18 campaign.
The club said: “The Farsley Celtic board regret to announce that joint-manager John Deacey has parted company with the club with immediate effect.
“We would like to place on record our thanks to John for all his help over the last two seasons and wish him all the best for the future. Further information will follow over the next few days.”
