Gargrave Reserves 0 – 2 AFC Padiham

November 21, 2009

This was a brave performance by Gargrave particularly from those who were carrying injuries. Both Jodie Lonsdale and Jonathan Chapman had attempts on goal whilst keeper Adam Hudson kept the visitors at bay. Ben Ashby played well in the centre of defence and debutant Chris Cox was a good support. Left winger Ed Stanley rolled back the years with a fine performance.Despite both teams efforts on the heavy pitch the score remained goal-less at half time.

Padiham looked likely to score just into the second half but the shot was well blocked by keeper and man of the match Adam Hudson. A fine controlled  and thunderous strike from Jonathan Chapman was so close for Gargrave but it bounced off the underside of the bar and then out. Hudson saved well again. A goal mouth scramble saw the ball cleared but Padiham took advantage by scoring from the clearence. Minutes from time the visitors increased their lead to 2-0.

A sterling performance from Gargrave who could not be faulted for their committment. The squad look forward to reversing the result when Padiham visit them again on the 5th December in the league cup. The next league game is on Saturday at home vs Silsden Whitestar.
