FARSLEY Celtic and York City come out of the summer recess on Saturday when they clash at Throstle Nest.

The Celts and the Minstermen will both be in new divisions in the coming season after Farsley’s play-off final victory saw them promoted to the Evo-Stik League Premier Division, while York suffered heartbreak on the final day of last season and were relegated into Vanarama National League North.

The Minstermen will be rivals of Bradford Park Avenue this term, and that could see mean goalkeeper Jon Worsnop playing against the side he helped to stay up last season.

Worsnop is one of six new signings brought in by York boss Gary Mills, and with Farsley’s new manager Adam Lakeland also having a new-look squad, the clash promises to be interesting, and a bumper crowd is expected at the Nest.

There is another Yorkshire derby as Brighouse Town host FC Halifax Town at the Dual Seal Stadium.

It will be the first outing for Brighouse’s new manager Vill Powell’s recently-assembled squad.

Former boss Paul Quinn moved on after Brighouse failed to break into the Evo-Stik Division One North play-off places on the final Saturday of last term but the Shaymen gained promotion back to the National League and will once again be rivals of Guiseley, who had a last-gasp escape at the expense of York City.

Brighouse have lost a few players, three of whom have signed for Farsley following their promotion, but Powell has been busy throughout the close season and has bolstered his squad with several new signings.

Silsden are another club opening with a home warm-up game as they host Yorkshire Amateur on a day that sees Avenue (against Bradford City) and Guiseley (against Leeds United) at home, as well as Farsley and Brighouse.

The Cobbydalers’ boss Danny Forrest is looking forward to getting his new signings and retained players some important game time after more than a week of intense pre-season training sessions.
