Gargrave Reserves 0 – 5 Cowling FC

September 22, 2008

Gargrave Reserves were hosts to the Division One leaders, Cowling on Saturday.

It was soon evident that Cowling were a strong footballing unit but Gargrave were not phased and they were the first to break the defences when Tom Vareys shot rattled the bar. However ten minutes into the game the visitors power shot gave stand in keeper Andrew Foulds little chance. Some awesome tackling from man of the match Chris Manger kept further attempts on goal blocked.

 A one goal deficit at the break still saw Gargrave in with a chance but Cowling came out in the second half with a must win/clean sheet mentality. A break away goal which outpaced the defence was soon followed by a third from a goal mouth scramble. Gargraves endeavours seemed to have accounted for little and motivation began to fade as a fourth goal came from a defensive error. The fifth and final goal of the game was the result of a penalty.

Again always some positives to work on, with sterling performances from the lively Matty Simpson, Jamie Cartman and promising new player Jamie Rotherham.

No Division One game next week ( Saturday 27th Sept ).


Got something to say?
