Farsley Celtic will compete in the Isuzu FA Trophy fifth round for the first time ever on Saturday, as the Celts make the long trip to face Hungerford Town.

Russ Wilcox’s side have already created history by seeing off Bradford (Park Avenue), Chester and Marske United to reach this stage, and how have the opportunity to reach the quarter-finals.

Standing in the Celts’ way is National League South side Hungerford Town, who, like Farsley, find themselves towards the bottom of their respective division.

The Crusaders have reached this stage of the competition having defeated three lower-league sides in Tavistock, Heybridge Swifts and Tamworth.

The Berkshire side, managed by Danny Robinson, currently sit in 24th place at the bottom of the National League South, but earned an impressive 3-0 victory over play-off chasing St. Albans City at Bulpit Lane on Tuesday evening.

Ahead of a first-ever meeting with Hungerford, Farsley Manager Russ Wilcox said: “We’re looking forward with excitement, we all are, and that’s why Tuesday was such a good performance, sometimes you’re looking too far ahead.

“We’re in the last 16, the first time in the history of the club, which is fantastic, hopefully we can get through to the next round into the quarters, and you just never know.

“We’ll travel down there Friday, and hopefully we can perform well and win.”


Frank Mulhern is unavailable for the Celts as he begins a four-match suspension following his dismissal against Hereford.
