Gargrave AFC

Settle United 12 – 0 Gargrave Res

August 28, 2008

The reserve squad knew their game against former East Lancashire side Settle United was always going to be their toughest challenge of the season.The players had not had the advantage of any friendly games and this was the first time they had been on a pitch together.There was a double whammy at the eleventh hour when one of the clubs regular keepers was unavoidably held up and could not get to the match. Midfielder Andrew Foulds bravely stepped into the breach.

Settle were always in control but Gargrave battled on in a game which the debut players and their aching limbs will remember for a long time. Man of the match was Simon Boatwright playing in his eleventh consecutive season for the club ( do not let his youthful good looks deceive you ). Despite the scoreline there were some positive performances and new manager Jimmy McLachlan looks forward to the next game which is on Wednesday evening, 27th August, at home to Bradley. Kick Off 6.30.p.m.
