Gargrave AFC

Gargrave AFC 3 – 0 Pendle Athletic

March 5, 2011

Gargrave began the game confidently, the first real shot of the game came from their top scorer Ben Brown who fired into the side netting. An impressive long range throw in from Matthew Brennand found Brown who passed the ball to Paul Wilkin in the box but he failed to convert the chance. Christian Moon shot for goal but the ball went straight to the keeper. There was no mistake on the twenty minute mark when a well taken header from Ben Brown opened the scoring. Good work from defender Matthew Brennand gave Christian Moon the chance for a second goal for the hosts, a good strike from close range. Al Tudhope tried his luck with a diving header but the ball went over the target.

Pendle came out in the second half pushing forwards  but the Gargrave defence held firm with man of the match centre back Dan Thompson thwarting any of their attempts on goal. Gargraves chances to extend their lead were not as frequent as they were in the first half of play but a win always looked on the cards. A good and welcome three points was sealed when Paul Wilkin scored the hosts third goal of the match toward the end of play.
