Gargrave AFC 0 – 1 Oakworth FC

November 14, 2011

Gargrave changed keepers a total of three times in a lack lustre game on a heavy pitch. The regular keeper was unavailable so striker Ben Brown donned the keepers jersey first, brother Matt took a knock so they changed positions. Neither the home or away keepers were called upon much in the first half with both defences stopping any real chances.

The second half saw Matt forced to leave the field with his injury so James Walker took over in the nets. Again the defences worked hard and a  header off the line by centre back  Dan Thompson gave the hosts a chance of a share of the points. Oakworth hit the bar and then two minutes from time they were awarded a free kick, the long range shot was headed into the back of the net. Disappointment for Gargrave when a share of the points would have been a fairer reflection of the game. Man of the match for Gargrave was mid fielder Richard Orme.

There was end to end action in this game as the scoreline reflects, a dozen goals in total, with three quarters of them scored by Gargrave who were 2-0 up early on. Rolls came back into the game and but were thwarted by some excellent work by the Gargrave keeper Stewart Wilson. There was a hat trick for Tom Varey, man of the match Matthew Simpson scored a couple, player manager Jonathon Chapman also netted  two and John Beckwith found the back of the net with one of his shots.

Gargrave Reserves 4 – 2 Pendle FC

November 6, 2011

Pendle were quick to attack and it was clear that this would be one of the harder games in the league for Gargrave. A power shot on the five minute mark gave keeper, Stewart Wilson no chance. Gargrave began to compete and a close range shot from Liam Cartman levelled the scores.

Gargrave re-shuffled in the second half. A long range speculative lob from Harry McEneaney was just too high and a Pendle effort went wide of the keeper. Stewart Wilson made an excellent save from a close range effort to keep Gargrave in the game who by now were playing with more determination. Man of the match Matthew Simpson hit the post but Tom Varey made no mistake from close range. A cool finish from substitute Robert Barker gave Gargrave a 3-1 lead. Pendle replied to put them back in with a chance. Tom Varey however had other ideas and a combination of both great effort and control notched up his second goal of the game, giving Gargrave a 4-2 win over some tough opposition.
