Gargrave Reserves 3 – 5 Grassington Reserves

November 28, 2011

Bad playing conditions brought Gargrave`s unbeaten record to an abrupt end on Saturday. A heavy pitch, continual rain and strong winds caused problems for both sides. Man of the match John Beckwith had the first chance but his shot was straight at the keeper, he passed the rebounding shot to Liam Cartman who from close range opened the scoring. Beckwith added the host`s second but Grassington soon levelled the scores. A good block from defender Aidie Eyles stopped Grassington from taking the lead. Both sides worked hard up to the half time whistle.

Grassington extended their lead to 3-2 , Gargrave continued to press forward but it was Grassington who scored from close range, and then a header shortly afterwards appeared to take the game beyond their reach. The fresh legs of the substitutes brought some hope and Beckwith scored on the turn, but it was too little too late.
