Craven FA – Craven Cup – Gargrave AFC 7 – 1 Horton FC

October 17, 2010

Gargrave  needed a win in this Craven Cup encounter to boost their confidence after a dismal start to their League campaign. Horton`s League record in comparision was commendable . The home club were delighted to welcome back Geoff Rotherham after his seven month stint in Afghanistan and his return added strength to the midfield. Gargrave took control from the start and captain Richard Orme was the first to score with a bullet shot from a free kick. Ben Brown followed up with an unstoppable shot. Simon Boatwright`s shot across goal went in on the twenty minute mark. A long range goal kick from Adam Hudson was misread by the Horton keeper who came off his line to gather but the shot went over for Ben Brown to tap in. Al Tudhope`s thunderous long range strike took the score to 5-0 at half time.

A tap in from defender Matthew Brennand increased the hosts tally whilst a lob from Horton gave them a consolation goal. Christian Moon added Gargraves seventh in the latter stages.

Good attacking play from Gargrave with some great finishing which they now need to apply to their league games. They have a free day next weekend but return to the league action on the 30th October with an away game at Rolls Royce.
