Spennymoor Town 2-1 Farsley Celtic (Tuesday 6th October 2020)
Our last meeting with Spennymoor Town was the opening game of the 2020/21 season, when the Moors ran out 2-1 winners at Brewery Field.
Rob Ramshaw had the hosts in front, but the big moment arrived when Farsley were reduced to 10 men as Steven Drench received his marching orders for handling the ball outside his box.
Just before the hour mark, Glen Taylor doubled his side’s lead as he headed home Ben McKenna’s cross; Farsley were given hope when Jake Charles pulled a goal back, however, Spennymoor held on for all three points.
Venue: Brewery Field, DL16 6JN.
