Gargrave AFC 1 – 1 Rolls Royce FC

October 5, 2009

The wind was the dominant factor in the game between Gargrave and the Premier Division leaders Rolls Royce FC. Gargrave scored straight from the whistle after Joel Timmins had gained possession allowing Ben Brown to neatly place the ball into the corner of the net. An overhead kick on the turn from Timmins went just wide whilst Rolls over ran the ball causing just too an acute angle for a precise shot. Keeper Stuart Wilson produced a couple of excellent saves to prevent Rolls levelling but a curling corner aided by the strong wind was just nudged over the line for the visitors to equalise.

The wind continued to gust but it was Gargrave who overcame the conditions,having the best of play, keeping the ball on the ground and passing well but that winning goal would just not come.

Al Tudhope was the man of the match for Gargrave with his tireless running which caused problems for the opposition both in defence and attack.
