Gargrave Reserves 6 – 1 Silsden Whitestar Reserves

October 16, 2012

Gargrave hosted Silsden Whitestar Reserves and a win was much needed as Gargrave have found themselves at the wrong end of the table.

The hosts started well and played some good football. Jack Harrison was a constant threat on the right hand side. However for all their possession Gargrave did not create too many scoring opportunities. Richard Orme played one of his signature long balls over the top that set Josh Town free but his half volley went high and wide. Gargrave were then awarded a penalty and up stepped Harry McEneaney but to the delight and relief of the away crowd the shot was dragged just wide. Will Beckwith was unlucky not to be awarded a penalty moments afterwards when a defender clearly handled the ball in the box but the referee was unable to see through the sea of players.

The second half started with a similar story for Gargrave this season, one long ball over the top and a defensive error gifted Silsden the lead. However Gargrave replied instantly when a great cross from Jack Harrison allowed Josh Town to equalise from close range.

Gargrave continued to dominate and to increase the pressure Player Manager Simon Boatwright gradually introduced his substitutes, big guns, Matty Simpson and John Beckwith which made for an exciting second half performance. John Beckwith scored a hat trick and man of the match Matty Simpson a brace. Matthew Brennand was unlucky not to collect the match point as he had an excellent game at the back.

Another good team performance from Gargrave and a thoroughly deserved three points.
