Gargrave AFC

Gargrave Reserves 0 – 5 Silsden Whitestar

November 30, 2009

Gargrave had the better of the play in the first half. A couple of early headers were just off target and Jonathan Chapman and Oliver Hurst both had chances. Whitestar`s only real threat was headed off the line by defender  Ben Ashby.  Man of the match Oliver Hurst made a welcome return in his first league game of the season  after a lengthy suspension and he controlled the game in midfield despite the poor conditions underfoot. Silsden pushed forwards hitting the bar with a shot, a melee in the area saw Gargrave give away a penalty which was well converted by the visitors.

Silsden increased their lead just into the second half of play with an easy tap in, Hurst almost levelled. A further three goals were added to the visitors tally, two were lobs over the stranded keeper. Gargrave continued to work hard though they knew the game was now beyond their reach on the heavy pitch. Al Tudhopes strike for a consolation goal went just wide. Despite receiving some physical knocks another great performance from young Luke Chapman in defence.

The Reserve squad play hosts to AFC Padiham on Saturday in the Division One league cup, will all players please note this is an early kick off of 1.30.p.m.
