Gargrave AFC

Gargrave 0 – 4 Grassington Utd

September 16, 2008

Simple errors from Gargrave allowed Grassington to walk away with all three points and a flattering scoreline on Saturday.

There was little to choose between the two sides as the game progressed with entertaining end to end action. A cross from Ben Brown to the head of Paul Wilkin saw Gargrave come close in the early stages but it was to be a header from last seasons premiership top scorer Grassingtons Adam Steventon which opened the scoring. A long low shot then took them into a 2-0 lead at the break.

There were harsh words from manager Luke Boatwright in the interval as he tried to spur his side on knowing they were capable of a win. However two more howlers allowed the visitors a comfortable 4-0 lead.

A disappointing result for Gargrave who of late have played some good passing football. The squad can only learn from their mistakes, pick up their pace at the back, learn to quicken their speed of thought and interpretate the game in a more focused and determined way. Despite the unflattering scoreline which was not a true reflection of the game there were some good solid performances. Man of the match was midfielder Richard Orme who was well supported by both Sam Watson and Oliver Hurst.

The squad probably face their toughest challenge of the season on Saturday when they travel to North Craven to play Ingleton in the first round of the Craven FA Challenge Cup.
