Gargrave Reserves won the league title on Saturday with a close fought game against their nearest rivals Hellifield Sports.
Hellifield were the quicker off the mark in the opening exchanges with Dale Denham having a couple of decent chances, one going just wide and the other saved by the feet of keeper, Stewart Wilson. The game continued with opportunities for both teams but neither could convert their chances. The deadlock was broken when a strong run from Denham saw him one on one with the keeper and he made no mistake. John Beckwith levelled from a close range scamble. Player Manager Jonathan Chapman cleared from the line to keep the score level at the half time break.
Matthew Simpson had a shot just over in the opening minutes of the second half and Tom Varey came close after some good work from Liam Cartman. The latter then saw his free kick parried away from goal by the Hellifield keeper. A great header from Matthew Simpson gave Gargrave the lead they were looking for and Hellifield did not help their cause when they lost a player who was shown a red card.
Three points to the hosts in their last game of the season and celebrations knowing that the Division Two league title was officially won. One remaining game on the 8th May, the final of the Division Two league title, opponents yet to be decided.

Gargrave were desperately unlucky to come away without any points from this game. Silsden went 2-0 up in the first half, their first a soft goal and the second down to a defensive mix up. Heavy rain gave both the pitch and the players a real soaking and conditions were heavy to say the least with a lot of standing water gathering toward the end of the first half .
The home side buckled down in the second half of play and played some of their best football of the season. Despite the heavy conditions they passed the ball well and created some good chances on goal. A power shot from Matthew Brennand was saved well. John Beckwith evaded the Silsden keeper with his shot to put Gargrave back in with a chance. Every player gave one hundred per cent, Josh Town worked incredibly hard and Al Tudhope was awarded the man of the match for his endeavours.

Gargrave Reserves continue to put pressure on their nearest rivals when they had another win vs Pendle Renegades to keep them at the top of the table. Hot on their heels are Hellifield who though points behind do have games in hand so it should be an interesting contest when the two meet on Saturday which will be the last league game of the season for Gargrave Reserves.
Scoring over at Pendle were Tom Varey and John Beckwith with two, veteran defender and assistant manager Adrian Eyles again showed his younger counterparts how it was done when he was awarded his third man of the match on the trot.

Cononley doubled their goal tally in the return match vs Gargrave AFC. The last clash a couple of weeks ago saw Cononley claim their three points with a 2 -0 win, Saturdays winning margin was by four goals and again Gargrave had no reply.
Cononleys opening goal came on the twenty five minute mark with a diving header, Craig Harris saved well after another attempt from the visitors. Scoring opportunites for Gargrave came from Joe Westhead and man of the match Richard Orme but luck was against them and the first half ended with Cononley having a slender 1-0 lead.
A close range shot gave Cononley a two goal cushion, a strong run through midfield from Dan Thompson looked promising but the resulting shot was wide. The referee awarded a goal to Cononley when he deemed a lob had crossed the goal line but this was debatable. Cononleys fourth came via a defensive error.
