Lewis Turner Re-Joins Farsley

Lewis Turner has today re-joined the club in a deal from Scarborough Athletic.
The right-sided player was an influential figure in the side that won the Northern Premier League title in 2019. Turner left the club following a long spell out of the team with an injury and signed on for Matlock Town for the start of the 2020/21 season. A short spell at the Gladiators was followed by a move to Scarborough in September last year.
On his move back to the club Lewis commented: “I am delighted to come back to the club, and after a few years away. I have spent the last two seasons at Scarborough and enjoyed my time there, but I felt like returning to The Nest was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
“I am looking forward to playing in this league again and testing myself against some very good teams. It is a competitive league, but Adam has put together a very good side capable of pushing at the top end of the table. I am looking forward to getting back involved with training tomorrow, ahead of a big game on Saturday when we take on Alfreton.”
Adam Lakeland is thrilled to bring Lewis back to the Celts: “I’m delighted that Lewis is returning to the club. He’s a great lad and a top player with a tremendous attitude and work ethic. He played a key role for us when he was here previously and I feel like he has unfinished business with us, so I can’t wait to work with him again.
“He’s been playing well for Scarborough in midfield and his energy, anticipation and competitiveness is something I feel we’ve been lacking in the middle of the park in recent weeks. It was imperative that we brought players in this week, and in Lewis, we have a player who can play in a number of positions, has the experience, an engine and is hungry to come in and make an impact on the team and I’m glad to have him back home.”
All at Farsley Celtic would like to welcome Lewis back to The Nest.
