Gargrave AFC

Skipton LMS Reserves 1 – 4 Gargrave

March 26, 2012

It was a hot day in Skipton, so Matthew Brennand turned up to this local derby wearing shorts.

The game started with the referees whistle, and it was Gargrave who took the lead when a through ball from the lively Richard Orme founds its way to Christian Moon who prodded the ball past the goalkeeper. Christian Moon soon added another after skinning a couple of defenders, and smashing the ball into the back of the net.

Half time arrived with Gargrave 2 – 0 up.

The 2nd half was to produce a moment that nobody on the ground would forget in a hurry when a clinical pass from Dan Thompson founds its way to the feet of one Simon Boatwright who was through on goal, one on one with the goalkeeper. In a situation like this, everyone was expecting Boatwright to miss, and rightly so based on past form, but to everyones surprise, he managed to scuff the ball past the LMS goalkeeper and it trickled over the line, to the disbelief of everyone in attendance.

LMS pulled a goal back with a long range effort, but Gargrave snatched a 4th on the break with Christian Moon completing his hat trick with a confident close range finish.

The game came to an end with nothing else of note happening, not even an overhead kick from Matthew Brennand, now into his second pair of shorts of the day. (These shorts were then changed back to the original shorts upon completion of the game)
