DATES VISITED THIS GROUND

 

26/8/2008 - Farsley 0 Lincoln City 5

Lincoln City made the trip to Farsley Celtic in a pre-season match, but only because our game against Derby was postponed. I hadn't counted on ejoying the day out as much as I did.

Getting to Farsley was fairly easy but the floodlights aren't that high above the ground and this makes it difficult to spot the ground until you're practically there. There is precisely sod-all to do around the ground other than the pub that is located at the ground. The facilities in this pub are quite decent.

I found the people around Farsley, especially those at the club, to be very friendly and this made for a decent day.

As for the ground itself, I wasn't expecting much to be honest and this way probably a good thing because it's not that great. Two small seated stands mixed with terracing doesn't make for a great venue, but the view of the action was fairly decent.

There's not a lot to say other than that really, it's a decent day out that I would recommend if you're local and your team aren't playing.
