Gargrave AFC

Gargrave 5 – 3 Skipton Town

August 2, 2008

Gargrave hosted a friendly Derby game on Saturday versus Skipton Town.

Town arrived with a large squad of players whilst Gargrave could only field eleven men as six of their players were taking part in a 5 a side competition at Rolls Royce FC (congratulations to the Gargrave team who won the competition, beating Trawden in the final).

There was little to choose between the two teams in the first half but Tom Varey was able to break the stalemate minutes from the half time whistle with a neatly placed shot. A free kick from Joel Timmins hit the defensive wall and Varey was on hand to hit the rebound. The hosts lead increased when Liam Jamesons header hit the spot. Skipton Towns fresh legs created two goals in quick succession but  Jamesons thirty yard screamer put Gargrave 4-2 ahead. Skipton Town replied with their third. Tom Varey claimed his hat trick with an eighteen yard lob and sealed victory,a hard working performance from all the players and Geoff had a good game too.

The next friendly is at home on Tuesday evening Vs Pendle Forest.


Got something to say?
