Howden Clough Vs Gargrave

July 26, 2008

Gargrave AFC had originally arranged to host a friendly match against the West Yorkshire side of Howden Clough. However due to ground unavailability, the roles were reversed and the Craven side made the journey to Batley sports centre on Saturday ( 26th July ) . Gargrave were to face a side playing at a higher level than themselves,  with teams in the West Yorkshire premier and the Spen Valley League.                                 

The visitors took the lead with a tap in from Sam Watson , Howden Clough replied with two goals to take the advantage. Al Tudhope levelled the scoring with another tap in. The win was sealed for Gargrave when Liam Jameson scored from a free kick with minutes to go.

An excellent team performance from all players with a special mention for Liam Jameson and Kristian Hodgson.A memorable win in sweltering conditions. A big thank you to Howden Clough for their kind hospitality and best wishes to them for a successful season.
