Summer signing Jordan Richards has made the Farsley Celtic right-back spot his own since his arrival from Southport in the summer, and has put in some astute defensive displays as well as contributing further up the field with a number of assists.

In a campaign that has so far seen the Celt Army hold their own among the National League North play-off contenders, Richards has started all 14 league and cup games this season, and opened his scoring account for the club in the 3-0 victory at Bradford (Park Avenue).

He spoke to ahead of this weekend’s fixture away at Alfreton Town, and started by discussing the disappointment of last week’s FA Cup defeat to his former club: “Everyone was disappointed after the game, it would have been nice to have a run in the FA Cup but it’s gone now, and as a squad, everyone is positive and focused on the next game in the league at the weekend.

“Following the match week we had two tough training sessions; it was what everyone needed especially with us having no game on the weekend with the Kidderminster game being called off. The gaffer gave us Saturday off, but we will train hard again this week for Saturday.”
