Farsley Celtic on the brink
The spectre of liquidation hangs over Blue Square North club Farsley Celtic who are already in trouble with the Conference for failing to fulfil two fixtures. Administrators Mazers have rejected two bids made by a consortium led by president Jon Palmer, the latest for £500,000. It is believed that debts total £750,000, but £200,000 of that relates to fees the administrators are charging for their work since last July. The club have the backing of Leeds City Council who say they won't grant permission for land around the ground to be developed unless it is still used for football.
If it proves not possible to rescue the club, it is likely that a reformed club would apply for membership of the Unibond Division One North next season.
