Oakworth FC 1 – 2 Gargrave AFC

January 14, 2012

Gargrave maintained their 100% unbeaten run in 2012 with a hard fought victory over Oakworth in a bottom of the table nine pointer.                         Oakworth started brightly but failed to create any meaningful chances and it was Gargrave who took the lead with a dreamy through ball from James French which fell to the feet of veteran striker Ben Brown who calmly slotted the ball past the keeper. The second half opened with both teams looking for the second elusive goal of the game and it was eventually Oakworth who supplied it. A shot was deflected into the path of the Oakworth striker , he squared the ball to his strike partner who tapped the ball into an open net. This angered manager Brown – two passionate substitutions were made with James Walker and Simon Boatwright replaced by Josh Town and Andy Seddon and the two substitutes combined well to create Gargraves winning goal of the game. Town played a pinpoint cross to attacking midfielder Seddon who calmly slotted home with a first touch finish. Oakworth almost snatched an equaliser from a corner, but divine intervention from a higher power stopped the ball going in the net. Man of the match for Gargrave was the bubbly Richard Orme.
