Farsley Celtic final result?

Posted by John Beech on July 9, 2009

In a perhaps surprising about-turn, the Conference has allowed Farsley Celtic to play in the Conference North next season, with a 10 point deduction (1). The club and the Administrator received an email yesterday saying “In the specific and unique circumstances of the Club, where a member Club has entered into administration after the Annual General Meeting and prior to the start of the new season, the Directors have taken a decision which it feels will benefit all parties.” So, nothing to do with the FA reversing their decision on Northwich Victoria then.

By a somewhat perverse route, the right outcome seems to have been reached.

It is is possible that this is not the end of the saga however. Presumably at least one club will feel hard done by in failing to be promoted to the Conference North, and a new dispute may arise. The Football Conference must be coming familiar with this kind of dispute however.

Previous Farsley Celtic postings are at, in chronological order, (2), (3), (4) and (5).
