Cononley FC 6 – 4 Gargrave AFC

October 7, 2012

Defences were on top in Saturday’s top of the table clash at the Willie Naylor sports ground in Cunnunley, as Gargrave suffered their first defeat of the season going down 6 – 4 to Connonley.

Gargrave took the lead through local builder Liam James after some good play from local farmer John Beckwith.

Gargrave should have extended their lead but chances were squandered by local farmer John Beckwith and local personality Tom Varey.

They were made to pay shortly after when a long hopefull ball fell inbetween local furniture restorer Adrian Eyles and local IT tecnhician Matthew Mat Brennand and the Connonley striker pounced to bring the game level.

Gargrave then seemed to go a bit mental, letting Connonley score another 3 goals, making the score 4 – 1 at half time.

This caused local insurance broker Jonathan Chapman into taking drastic measures, by bringing on his 1 substitute at half time but this paid dividends when local Cartman Liam Cartman brought Gargrave back into the game with a clinical finish.

Gargrave continued to pile on the pressure and managed to bring the score back to 4 – 4 with 2 goals from local farmer John Beckwith.

At this point it looked like the game was there for the taking, but a scrappy goal for Connonley after Gargrave failed to clear took the hosts back into the lead.

Connonley made sure of the victory with 5 minutes to go when local furniture restorer Adrian Eyes brought down the Connonley striker in the area with an impressive Karate Kick to the stomach. Connonley’s ginger striker stepped up and put the ball past local tea room entrepreneur Richard “Nev South” Hall to bring the game to a close.
