Farsley Celtic have announced that Richard Marshall has become the latest of last season’s play-off and County Cup double-winning squad to agree terms for the upcoming campaign.
Marshall signed for the Celts from Bradford Park Avenue at the start of last season and was influential in the club gaining promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier Division. He made 57 appearances for the club in the campaign and weighed in with an impressive 20 goals, making him the club’s second-top scorer.
Upon signing Marshall commented, ‘I’m really happy at staying for another year with Farsley Celtic. I had a few offers, but after speaking with the new Manager I liked what he had to stay so I decided to stay at the club. Speaking with Adam, he was really clear on how he wants to play and how he wants to push for promotion and challenging in the league, so I was really impressed by that.
‘The squad that has been put together is looking strong. It’s almost the squad we had last year and most of the boys have played Conference North or higher anyway so I think we should be looking to push for play-offs without a doubt. The league is a tough one this year with a lot of travelling but with a bigger squad I think we should have the strength in depth to deal with it'”.
