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.
