Farsley win marred by 'pathetic' dismissals
Garforth Town 1 Farsley 3
Farsley climbed three places to sixth in Evo-Stik Division One North thanks to a win at basement outfit Garforth Town but the derby result was overshadowed.
The home side ended with nine men, while Neil Parsley’s team finished with ten after they too were reduced in numbers. All of which antagonised Parsley.
“It was poor refereeing for me. They all could have stayed on the pitch,” declared the manager.
“They scored and Matt Dempsey grabbed the ball and their lad tried to snatch it back to make it a quick restart because they had just got back into it at 2-1.
“The referee decided to flex his muscles.
“I thought they were pathetic sending-offs.”
Farsley took a first-half lead when recent signing Dempsey added his second goal in as many starts, netting in a scramble following a Farsley corner.
Garforth’s former Bantam and Farsley player Patrece Liburd headed an Aaron Hardy cross past his own keeper to give the visitors a two-goal cushion.
Ex-Park Avenue striker Dan Sheriffe came on for the home side in the 73rd minute and two minutes later netted from close range.
That preceded the double sending-off and, three minutes from time, Town’s James Burgess was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
Hardy wrapped up the scoring with a powerful shot in the last minute to ensure Farsley came home with the spoils.
