Career[edit]

Farrell began his career at non-league club Redditch United in 1991 before joining Aston Villa in 1992 for a fee of £45,000.[1] He made eight league and cup appearances for Aston Villa in three seasons and then joined Wycombe Wanderers for a fee of £100,000, where he made over 70 appearances in all competitions in two seasons.[1] He moved on to Peterborough United in June 1997, where he spent nine seasons, making almost 400 appearances and scored 52 goals, and became a London Road legend.[1] He was not offered a new contract at the end of the 2005–06 season, due to the manager wanting someone younger, and left the club,[2] joining Boston United in June 2006,[3] where he made 43 appearances during the 2006–07 season as Boston were ultimately relegated from the Football League in May 2007.[4]

After one season at Boston, Farrell joined Conference National side Burton Albion in July 2007.[5] He was released by Burton after his one-year contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season[6] and re-joined Boston United, now in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, in June 2008.[4]

Farrell will be making a rare appearance on the 18th October 2015 when he plays for the Posh Legends. The Posh Legends will be taking on the infamous Thomas Cook in a charity match for a very worthy cause. Thomas Cook have their very own football legend, James Fletcher, who played for Boston United in his hay day.

Notes[edit]

A. ^ The "Other" column constitutes appearances and goals in the Football League Trophy unless stated. In 1999/00 the data relates to the Football League play-offs.
B. ^ The season summary source wrongly lists Farrell as scoring two goals in 'Other competitions'. This is proved to be incorrect by analysis of Peterborough's games/scorers for that season [1]
