Gargrave Show……

August 16, 2016

Any help would be gratefully received on Saturday 20th August for the clearing of the showfield. The Football club receive a donation from the Show for undertaking this work. Please meet at the field in front of Eshton Hall at 6.p.m, it is a case of many hands make light work.

Though we don`t have a team in the Craven League we still need funds to continue to  maintain our ground.

Team withdrawn……

August 3, 2016

The Craven FA and the Craven League have both been informed that Gargrave AFC are withdrawing from all competitions in the forthcoming season.

The decision has not been taken lightly but due to lack of players there was no alternative. Despite the power of social media, word of mouth, website and local awareness we have insufficient players coming forward to field a regular side.

A small number of players are available on a regular basis but their numbers were not sufficient to allow for injuries and unavailabilty. These commited players held a meeting after their training session on Tuesday evening and reluctantly agreed that they had no option but to fold.

The officers at Gargrave Football club would like to acknowledge these players and the support they have given to the club, some for many years and some for a few latterly. In particular special mention must go to Jonathon Chapman who has given tremendous service to Gargrave AFC  both as a player and a Manager.

Season 2016/17

May 25, 2016

A lack of players at certain points last year meant the cancellation of three games during the season, sadly this meant that all the points were awarded to the opposition teams on each occasion which obviously can affect the league positions at the end of the season.

We need players for the 2016/17 season , either new to the club or returning ones. Regular players are a bonus but players also welcome who can play now and again. We want to keep the club up and running but can only do this if we have enough player support. It is costly to the club when we have to cancel a game ( £25.00 fine each time ) and we  incurr the wrath of both the Craven League and often the opposition too.

The AGM will be taking place at the Sports Pavilion within the next couple of weeks and the date will be posted on this site.

Game Off……

March 11, 2016

The away game at Settle on the 12th March has unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Gargraves lack of players.

A disappointing situation which gives Settle the three points from the game and creates a £25.00 league fine for Gargrave for cancelling a game.

Game off….

March 4, 2016

Tomorrows game away vs Rolls is cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch. ( 5th March )

Next game 12th March away vs Settle, followed by 19th March Craven Cup away vs LMS.
