The old Farsley Club (the name Celtic being added later) initially competed in the Leeds Amateur leagues and played its first game at its current site home ground, Throstle Nest, in 1948. Throughout the 1950s and 60s Celtic established themselves in the Yorkshire Leagues, being crowned champions in 1959-60 and 1968-69, although failing to be promoted as a result of ground regulations.
A First Round FA Cup tie against Tranmere Rovers at Leeds United’s Elland Road ground in 1974 proved to be the highlight of the decade, and the 11,000 crowd that saw the Celts lose 2-0 to a Steve Coppell inspired Rovers is still the largest crowd in the Club’s history.
As the Yorkshire and Midland leagues merged in 1982 to form the NCEL, Farsley began in Division One North. By the mid-80s the Club was invited into the NPL.
After a few largely uninspiring seasons, the new millennium brought unparalleled success. In 2005/06 under the management of Lee Sinnott, promotion from the Unibond Premier Divisions was secured after a Play-off Final victory against North Ferriby and in the following campaign, the Club’s first in the Conference North, they reached the First Round of the FA Cup losing in a replay to MK Dons as well as securing promotion to the Conference National following a memorable evening at the Pirelli Stadium, Burton Albion FC, as a last minute penalty saw the Celts beat Hinkley United 4-3. A single season of Conference National football resulted in relegation to the Conference North with financial problems causing the Club to be expelled from that league early in 2010.
The re-formed Club, Farsley AFC, was placed in the NCEL Premier Division for their first season which turned out to be highly successful winning the league at the first attempt. The Club also reached two cup finals, the NCEL Presidents Cup, in which Tadcaster won but the season ended on a positive note with the League Cup being lifted despite 1-0 against Winterton Rangers.
On May 19th, 2015, the Club got their ‘Celtic’ moniker back to become Farsley Celtic FC. The Club won promotion to the EVO-STIK NPL Premier Division in 2016-17 winning the Play-off Final against Ossett Town 4-2 AET. The West Riding County Cup was also won that season, with the trophy retained in 2017-18 after a 4-1 victory over Selby Town.
