FA Trophy 2nd Qualifying round: Barwell 2 Farsley Celtic 3.

Kirkby Rd, Barwell, Leicester LE9 8FQ

Frankie’s mate Joe joined us again for a first visit to Barwell this season. Opposition Farsley (from near Leeds (boooo!)) brought two coachloads of supporters to boost what would otherwise have been a really disappointing turn-out. The lads had a great time chanting and singing made-up Barwell songs accompanied by banging on the back of the stand…much to the delight of the old boys sat there.

The football was decent, with Farsley’s first goal being an absolute beauty and they just about deserved their ‘giantkilling’, although their goalkeeper was a time-wasting drama queen.

Had a nice chat with Barwell’s media officer who was very clued-up and complimentary about FCUM and it was nice to see a load of FCUM stickers still decorating the covered terrace wall after our last visit here in 2014.
