Gargrave AFC

Gargrave 4 – 3 Skipton LMS

August 30, 2009

Gargrave  were hit badly by player unavailablility on Bank Holiday Saturday and this forced the cancellation of the Reserve game . The first team game was played with just the basic squad of eleven players.

Player ManagerMatt Brown was the first to test the visiting keeper. LMS hit the post but made no mistake with the rebound. Joel Timmins, Richard Orme, Matt Brown and Oliver Hurst all had attempts on goal but shots were either just wide or saved. LMS scored a second just before the break.

Though Gargrave were giving the visitors a game and a half it was LMS who scored once more taking a 3-0 lead. Gargrave kept their discipline and focus whilst LMS seemingly thought they had the game in the bag. Timmins went close. Matt Brown passed the ball through to his brother Ben who scored from eight yards. LMS rattled the bar. A sweet pass from Joel Timmins to Paul Wilkin saw a neat tap in find the back of the net to bring the game to the boil. A long low strike from Ben Brown levelled the scores 3-3. The come back Kings could taste victory. Superb play from Oliver Hurst was rewarded as he scored the winning goal moments before time. Defender Dan Thompson earned the man of the match award whilst Luke Howsen was impressive for LMS.
