Aiden Savory sweet in Farsley victory
Farsley 4, Darlington 1883 2
An Aiden Savory hat-trick helped Farsley to consign newly-formed Darlington 1883 to their first defeat in Evo-Stik League Division One North.
The side that rose from the ashes of former Football League outfit Darlington had begun with back-to-back wins until they arrived at Throstle Nest.
Farsley were in front early when skipper Rob O’Brien netted a 13th-minute penalty and they were in control soon after the half-hour mark.
Savory netted a good shot in the 31st minute and scored again three minutes later.
Darlington pegged the home side back just before the interval when Andrew Johnson netted but Savory completed his treble in the second half.
It could have been a nervous ending for the hosts after Steve Thompson made it 4-2 but their opponents missed a later penalty, allowing Farsley to cruise to three points.
The victory took Farsley up to fifth place with six points from three starts ahead of tomorrow’s derby trip to Ossett Albion, who earned their first point of the season with a 2-2 Saturday draw at Wakefield.
