FARSLEY ran out comfortable 4-0 winners in their Saturday friendly on a soggy surface at Glasshoughton Welfare.

The game was in doubt after heavy overnight rain and steady drizzle for most of the morning but it did get the go-ahead.

Lewis Nightingale clipped the bar with an inswinging corner and a Ross Daly shot was blocked on the line as the visitors threatened early.

They finally broke the deadlock just after the half-hour mark and it led to three strikes in a seven-minute spell.

Adam Priestley pounced to open the scoring when Aiden Savory's shot was only parried.

The same player also added the second after rounding his marker, before skipper Rob O'Brien drilled in the third goal from 25 yards.

Aaron Hardy made it 4-0 from the penalty spot after a handball in the area after an hour.

The wet weather put paid to Thackley's friendly, who had been due to host Kendal Town.
