Farsley Celtic can confirm the sale of Jimmy Spencer to Curzon Ashton for an undisclosed fee.

Spencer joined the Celts from Mansfield Town in the summer of 2018, and has enjoyed five years at the Citadel, becoming a central figure for Farsley throughout his time in West Leeds.

He made an immediate impact in his first season at the club, firing the Celts to the Northern Premier League title, and a return to the National League North for the first time since 2010.

Spencer would be honoured individually for his efforts that season, voted the Northern Premier League Player of the Year, whilst being named in the Northern Premier League’s Team of the Year alongside Will Hayhurst.

The striker would stay loyal to the Celts as we began life in the National League North, continuing to show his class, and he would, of course, play a vital role in last season’s final-day survival orchestrated by Russ Wilcox.

He will leave behind a whole host of moments of individual brilliance that will live long in the memory of Farsley supporters, such as his hat-trick at Grantham Town, his overhead kick at Alfreton, and his outstanding assist for Jack Higgins’ winner at Matlock Town.

In 2019, Spencer was voted into Farsley’s Team of the Decade for the 2010s, enshrining his status as a true Farsley legend.

The forward leaves the Citadel after making 173 appearances, finding the back of the net on 59 occasions, and providing countless more assists.

Everyone at the club would like to thank Jimmy for his immense efforts in a Farsley shirt over the previous five years, and wish him all the best for the future.

Jimmy and his family will always be welcome back at the Citadel. Once a Celt, always a Celt.
