Silsden Whitestar 2 – 7/8 Gargrave AFC

February 25, 2013

The first round of the Division One league cup was switched to Gargrave`s ground on Saturday due to a few problems with the Silsden pitch.

Regular keeper Stewart Wilson was unavailable so player Manager Jonathon Chapman moved into his position and looked comfortable in the role.

Gargrave played an attacking game from the start with Matthew Simpson unlucky not to score with a diving header and John Beckwith hitting the post. Ben Wilson played a good through ball to Simpson who made no mistake with a tap in to open the scoring. A second soon followed with a good finish by Simpson. John Beckwiths one on one with the keeper gave Gargrave a 3-0 lead and a good save from Chapman gave Gargrave a clean sheet as the whistle was blown for half time.

A great free kick from Liam Jameson took the Silsden defence by surprise and extended the hosts lead to 4-0. A one on one with the keeper allowed Simpson to claim his hat trick and John Beckwith grabbed his second of the game. A long low shot from Simpson took the score to 7-0.

Silsden managed a couple of consolation goals in the latter part of the game and Gargrave possibly scored another .

#Final score  Gargrave 7 or 8  -  2  Silsden Whitestar.
