Gargrave 3 – 0 Rolls Royce

October 26, 2008

Gargrave welcomed Rolls Royce to the Foxes Den on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon, both teams were eager to progress to the next round of the Northern Plant Hire cup and battled admirably against the conditions.

The early exchanges were very even with Rolls Royce coming close to penetrating Gargraves back line on a number of occasions, but it was the Premiership side that took the lead when a well placed cross found keen mountaineer Paul Wilkin in acres of space in the Rolls Royce box and he made no mistake, scoring his first, or possibly second goal of the season.

As the game went on into the second half, Gargrave began to dominate proceedings. Sam Watson got on the end of a through ball and when faced with the Rolls Royce keeper, proceeded to kick the ball straight at him, but luckily for Mr Watson the ball the ball cannoned off the keepers legs and into the roof of the net, leaving him Sam with a big smile on his face, he was a very happy bunny indeed.

The pitch was now starting to take it’s toll on a certain member of the Gargrave team, who decided not to bring any studded boots with him on one of the wettest days of the year. Manage Luke Boatwright decided he couldn’t let this mistake go unpunished and substitued striker Joel Timmins for Wilsden resident, and Oxenhope local Richard Orme.

It was Orme who was instrumental in Gargraves 3rd goal. He found himself in space in the Gargrave half, and played a pass with the outside of his little left toe, through the Rolls Royce defence, allowing the sometimes blonde, sometimes brown haired Christian Moon to score his 10th goal of the season.

Gargrave played out the game and ended with a much welcome clean sheet, with ladies man Jeff Rotherham having a very solid game on his first start of the season for the 1st team.
