Gargrave Reserves 0 – 1 Oakworth FC

October 12, 2009

Oakworth attacked from the off, first hitting the post and then the bar. Mark Webbs well placed free kick into the box looked dangerous but failed to find a Gargrave head. Oakworth continued to attack and the Gargrave defence had to work hard. Keeper and man of the match Adam Hudson was in the thick of the action putting in some great saves. Sam Ashbys pass to his brother Ben saw the shot go just wide,Stuart Dollan came close and a speculative long range lob from Jodie Lonsdale was tantalizingly close.

Gargrave came back into the game in the second half of play with improved passing moves and Oakworth began to loose some of their composure. Cricketer Ed Stanley and Scott Eggleston both put in good performances on their debut. Hudson continued to put in some great saves but a last minute ( literally) foray by Oakworth saw them take the lead. A cruel blow for the hosts after a mammoth defensive performance. Man of the match for the visitors was Andrew Tanner.

The Reserves will be in action in the Craven FA Norman Pratt Trophy on Saturday, away vs Grindleton Reserves. The winners of this game will meet Skipton Town Reserves in the next round.
