Ighton Leigh game off…..

February 12, 2011

Unfortunately the game away at Ighton Leigh was called off this morning ( Sat 12th Feb ) at 11.30.a.m. The Ighton Leigh match officials were as disappointed as anyone and offered to play the game at Gargrave. This was not an option as the First team will be playing at home. Their ground is at Shuttleworth College, Burnley road, Padiham so any decisions on games going ahead or not going ahead are taken out of Ighton Leighs hands. Hopefully this game will be re-scheduled for a Saturday as an away fixture of this distance for night games is not really workable.

Why not come down and watch the First team who are playing at home vs WFC Clitheroe, are they on a late roll of wins ( Gargrave that is )?????

Cup News for the First team….

January 17, 2011

A small number of Craven FA Games went ahead on Saturday. Unfortuantely the Reserve team game against Embsay Reserves was one that fell foul of the weather, therefore their quarter final Norman Pratt trophy game will now take place at Embsay on Saturday 19th February. 2.p.m kick off. ( please note this game is not a Craven League game, the two teams will still play league games and they are due to meet for one of those at Gargrave on Saturday 22nd January ).

The second round of the Craven FA Craven cup fixture between Barnoldswick Town 2nds and Grassington did go ahead with Barnoldswick the runner away winners with a 5-0 scoreline. Baroldswick Town will play host to the Gargrave first team in the quarter final stages of the cup on Saturday 19th February. 2.p.m kick off.

Craven FA Cup game – Off

January 15, 2011

The Reserves quarter final cup game is off at Embsay due to a waterlogged pitch ( Saturday 15th January )

The Reserves next game on Saturday 22nd January is at home to the same opponents – Embsay Reserves – this is a league game NOT a re-arranged fixture of the the Craven FA Cup game

Home fixture on the 15th January.

January 10, 2011

Unfortunately despite informing the Craven League about the problems we have with the water supply at the changing rooms and requesting an away fixture on the 15th January they have given us a home fixture!

We requested an away fixture as we know our plumber is unlikely to complete the work this week. Will all players please be aware that there may well be no water ( if we turn the supply on there will be an awful lot just about everywhere) and we may have to use the upstairs changing rooms. We will be unable to use either the showers or the toilets and it may also mean us turning off the electrical supply. Basically you will just have a roof over your head!

The away team Embsay will be informed of the situation. Please keep viewing the web-site in case the situation changes and we do get everything repaired by the 15th January.

No games today – 8th January

January 8, 2011

Unfortunately both games have been called off today, Saturday 8th January.

The home game against Embsay is cancelled because of further burst pipes in the pavilion. Despite draining the system in the bad weather there have still been problems with the water pipes. A repair was undertaken mid week in the away changing rooms with the pipes underneath the sink  so we thought all was well. However when we turned the water on again on Saturday morning there were two bad leaks beneath the sink in the upstairs room of the pavilion, water coming through the ceiling in the ladies changing room ( this was very close to an electrical supply) and water coming from behing the tiled area underneath the home sinks. Therefore in the interests of safety we had no alternative but to call the game off.

The away game was cancelled at Ighton Leigh apparently on Friday but we had received no messages about this. It was just fortunate that we checked about this game when we had to cancel our own at home or the Reserves would have had the long journey to Burnley for nothing.

Hopefully back to normal next week -so watch this space!  ( The Reserve squad will be in action in the Craven FA Norman Pratt Quarter final game, away at Embsay Reserves. 1.30.k.o )
