Away Guide: Farsley Celtic

AFC Telford United make the trip to Yorkshire tomorrow following a two week break from action

Stadium The Citadel, formally the Throstle Nest Newlands, Farsley, Pudsey, West Yorkshire LS58 5BE

Club Colours: Green and White

Nickname: The Villagers, Celtics

Normally fans are not segregated at the Citadel. The North Terrace is open to the elements and whilst the Shed End has some covered terrace, there are a number of supporting pillars running along the front of it that may impede your view.

The Shed End is shared with home supporters, who are in close proximity on the other side of a fence, which makes for a bit of atmosphere. If fans are not segregated then you can enjoy a range of Pies and Pasties baked at the local Growlers Bakery in Pudsey.

The modest main stand runs off centre, half the length of the pitch with small open terraces either side of it and opposite. The capacity is around 4,000, 300 of which is seated.

Directions by Road

From Junction 28 of the M62, take the A653 towards Leeds. After passing the White Rose Shopping Centre on your left, bear left where the road forks onto the ring road (A6110). Continue on the A6110 passing underneath the M621, following signs for Bradford (A647). You will join the Stanningley By-Pass (A647) still continuing towards Bradford. At the next roundabout take the third exit onto the B6157 Bradford Road towards Farsley. Go down the Bradford Road and turn left just past the Carstar outlet onto New Street. Then take the third right onto Newlands Road and the ground entrance is at the end of this road on the left.

There is a fair-sized car park at the ground which is free.

Car Parking

There is a fairly large car park at the ground (normally free) but it will first come first served.

Directions by Train

New Pudsey is about a mile from the ground and is the nearest railway station.

It is served by trains from Leeds and Manchester Victoria. The station is around a 15-20 minute walk away from the Citadel. As you leave the station, immediately turn right and then right again take the pathway along the side of the railway. Follow this pathway until you reach an underpass on the left going under the railway, where you turn left. After emerging on the other side cross the road and turn left along the pathway with railings on either side. At the top of the road turn right and then turn left just past the Carstar outlet onto New Street. Then take the third right onto Newlands Road and the ground entrance is at the end of this road on the left.

Eating and Drinking

There is a fair-sized clubhouse at the ground itself, which normally welcomes visiting fans. It also shows Sky Sports. The nearest pub which is around a five-minute walk is the Jug & Barrel on Town Street. If you have a bit more time on your hands then take the 10-15 minute walk into Farsley, where there are a few more pubs to be found along Town Street.

If you are in Town Street and have time for a takeaway lunch, you must visit the award-winning Croft Street Fisheries in Croft Street
