Embsay Reserves 4 – 1 Gargrave Reserves

October 17, 2010

A difficult day for the young squad with their experienced captain Adrian Eyles forced to leave the field of play early on in the game through injury and Jonathan Chapman and defender Michael McLachlan unavailable. Things did not improve as the game went on with player manager Matthew Simpson aggrevating an ankle injury.  Embsay took the lead early on in the game and scored a second fifteen minutes later.

Gargrave gained a bit more confidence in the second half and their play improved though Embsay pushed forwards and scored a further two goals. Lee Dent gave the visitors some hope when he picked up a loose ball on the penalty spot and slotted the ball into the bottom corner. Robert Barker was man of the match for Gargrave and Oliver Hunter earned the praise for Embsay.

The Reserves next game is at home on Saturday against Skipton Town.
