Gargrave AFC

Skipton Town FC 1 – 2 Gargrave Reserves

October 10, 2011

There was little to choose between the two teams but a defensive error gave Town the opportunity to take the lead with a well finished goal. Gargrave pressed for the equaliser and a good goal from Robert Barker levelled the score at 1-1. The Skipton Town keeper played well and gave Gargrave little chance to pull ahead. However a goal mouth scramble ten minutes from time gave Gargrave the opening they needed to take the lead with Barker again the man in the frame. Harry Thompson was man of the match for Gargrave.

Gargrave AFC 0 – 1 Crosshills FC

October 10, 2011

This was a game when the points were decided by penalties. One scored and one saved! Unfortunately for Gargrave theirs was the latter.

Work commitments meant that regular keeper Sean Kennedy was unavailable again so striker Ben Brown opted to take on his role . Crosshills had the better part of the play for the first fifteen minutes and a good break from the visitors saw Brown tested in goal when he faced a one on one but some brave keeping kept the score at 0-0. Excellent play from Christian Moon gave Matt Brown the chance to open the scoring for the hosts but the shot went wide. Both teams pressed for goal but both defences held firm.

Gargrave were awarded a penalty midway through the second half and Ben Brown changed back to striker role ( or maybe not ) his resulting shot was saved easily by the Crosshills keeper. Gargrave had their chances to take the lead but luck was against them . Simon Boatwright just missed contact with a diving header and the hard working Billy Bolland saw his shot hit the keeper, and then the rebounding shot hit the bar. Crosshills were awarded a penalty and this was well taken and gave Brown no chance in goal. Man of the match for Gargrave was defender Matt Brennand.

Gargrave AFC   Vs  Skipton Town FC

Hellifield Sports FC 2 – 5 Gargrave Reserves

October 2, 2011

This top of the table clash started evenly with little to choose between the two teams. Harry Thompson squared the ball to player manager Jonathan Chapman who scored with a tap in. Thompson was the scorer of the second goal with a shot into the top corner of the net five minutes from the half time break. Robert Barkers solo effort and neat finish created the third goal for the visitors. Hellifield found the back of the net but man of the match Matthew Simpson took the score beyond their reach with his volley from the edge of the area. Gargraves fifth goal of the game came from Tom Varey who finished well. Hellifield scored their second goal five minutes from time. The teams are now level on points but Gargrave have the advantage of a game in hand and a goals advantage.

Gargrave AFC 1 – 5 Chatburn FC

October 2, 2011

Gargrave started the game at a disadvantage with players unavailable through injury and unavailability. The main problem was the lack of a regular keeper but player manager Matt Brown stepped into the breach. Ten minutes into the game Chatburn took the lead. Man of the match Christian Moon looked dangerous as he ran through the Chatburn defence but the shot was just wide. Brown denied the visitors a second as he parried a shot over the bar but he had no answer to a long range effort from Chatburn. Ben Brown replied with a goal for the hosts. Chatburn hit the bar, a third goal was created from a cool tap in and a header from an acute angle took the score to 4-1.

Midfielder Richard Orme had to leave the field at half time through injury and with the substitute Billy Bolland having already been introduced it left Gargrave with ten men. However despite the heat of the day Gargrave battled on and denied Chatburn any more real goal scoring opportunities, defender Matthew Brennand almost got a consolation goal when he ran through the defence and faced a one on one with the keeper. Chatburn had the last word when a soft goal meandered over the line.
