Farsley Celtic are delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Glover as our new Club President.

Paul assumes the role following the sad passing of our former president John Palmer in December.

Paul Glover is Farsley Celtic through and through, having had an active association with the club for over 70 years.

He was friends with some of Farsley’s founding members and at just 14 was the club’s groundsman, before representing the club on the pitch as a player for 17 years.

During his time at Farsley, Paul has also held the positions of Chairman, Part Owner and Director.

However, to most of you, he will be familiar as our match day announcer, a role he has held for a number of years. In recent years he has also reassumed the role of groundsman, and is an integral part of our new Board of Directors, alongside his announcing duties.

Chairman Paul Barthorpe said: “I’m delighted that Paul has agreed to become our new Club President, and I don’t think you could find someone who is more Farsley Celtic.

“Following the sad passing of John Palmer, it was always going to be a difficult decision on who could follow in his footsteps and fill this role, but in Paul, I think we have the perfect person.

“He is and always has been an integral part of this club, and he truly has the football club in his heart.”
