Gargrave AFC

Northern Plant Hire Trophy-first round….

September 28, 2009

Gargrave AFC  3  -  1   Embsay FC

Cup holders Gargrave were hosts to Embsay in the first round of the Northern Plant Hire Trophy competition. The two teams met last season in the semi final stages when Gargrave just had the edge to win 2-1.

Embsay opened the scoring but Ben Brown levelled with a superb free kick which curled into the corner of the net. Joel Timmins came close but a cruel bounce just denied the opportunity to take the lead. Greenwoods shot across goal at the other end was just wide whilst the lively Al Tudhope`s header went just over the bar. 1-1 at half time

Gargrave soon pulled ahead at the re-start with a goal of the season from Timmins. The strong breeze continued to cause problems for both sides but  neat passing moves from Joel Timmins to Geoff Rotherham gave Christian Moon the opportunity to head in the third and final goal of the game for Gargrave to enjoy a 3-1 win.
