Gargrave Reserves 2 – 4 Ighton Leigh

November 1, 2009

Martin Eyles gamely stepped in as stand in keeper on Saturday and was soon in the action as Ighton Leigh began their forays on goal. More changes were necassary when Nick Kendall was forced to leave the field of play with a hamstring injury. Ighton Leigh continued to push forwards and were three goals to the good when the whistle blew for half time.

Gargrave were awarded a penalty early on in the second half of play and this was converted well by Mark Webb. Stuart Dollan single handedly seemed to breathe new life into the Gargrave squad when he deftly controlled the ball and lobbed the stranded keeper, a draw now seemed within the reach of the hosts and it was now Gargrave who pushed forwards. Defender Adrian Eyles swopped positions with his brother Martin in goal but though Gargrave seemed to have new heart as they pushed for an equaliser it was Ighton Leigh who scored. An unstoppable angled shot which took the game beyond Gargraves reach. A 4-2 win for the Lancashire visitors.

Good performances from the consistent Luke Chapman,Michael McLachlan and the man of the match Jodie Lonsdale. Andy Fisher was named as man of the match for Ighton Leigh.
