Kristy, who also runs her own business and has experience in management and training, joined Farsley Celtic as our commercial and partnership manager a couple of months ago.

“My role involves going out into the community to raise awareness of the club, forge relationships with local businesses and to create awareness in the community that we are here and that we’re a part of this community,” Kristy said.

“Partnerships can be mutually beneficial to both local businesses and organisations and ourselves, it’s about working together as a community.”

Chairman Paul Barthorpe said: “Kristy has been successful running her own business for a number of years and has a track record of building strong business relationships. These are exactly the skills we needed to bring to Farsley Celtic.

“You will already see some of Kristy’s work around the ground, with an increasing number of pitch side banners, and she is already building relationships with local businesses and organisations.

“From next season, we’re hoping she will help us bring in larger commercial agreements and partnerships which are mutually beneficial to both us as a club but also to our partners in the community.”
