Gargrave AFC 3 – 1 Barnoldswick Town Utd

October 20, 2012

Gargrave were hosts to East Lancashire side Barnoldswick Town Utd in the first round of the Craven FA  Craven Challenge Cup.

Gargrave got off to a flying start scoring two goals in the early exchanges. Liam Jameson with a well placed close range strike and Matthew Simpson with a header.

Barnoldswick began to settle and scored a superb shot on the volley from a corner ball. Barnoldswick competed well in the second half of play enjoying much of the possession.Gargrave hit the bar and a penalty awarded to Barnoldswick went high and wide of target. Both teams squandered their chances from then on but fortunately for the hosts they had the advantage of a slender lead.

A close range shot towards the end of play from Thomas Varey gave Gargrave a 3-1 home win and it was game over for the newly formed team, Barnoldswick Town Utd.
