Rolls came back into the game and but were thwarted by some excellent work by the Gargrave keeper Stewart Wilson.

Gargrave Reserves 4 – 2 Pendle FC

November 6, 2011

Pendle were quick to attack and it was clear that this would be one of the harder games in the league for Gargrave. A power shot on the five minute mark gave keeper, Stewart Wilson no chance. Gargrave began to compete and a close range shot from Liam Cartman levelled the scores.

Gargrave re-shuffled in the second half. A long range speculative lob from Harry McEneaney was just too high and a Pendle effort went wide of the keeper. Stewart Wilson made an excellent save from a close range effort to keep Gargrave in the game who by now were playing with more determination. Man of the match Matthew Simpson hit the post but Tom Varey made no mistake from close range. A cool finish from substitute Robert Barker gave Gargrave a 3-1 lead. Pendle replied to put them back in with a chance. Tom Varey however had other ideas and a combination of both great effort and control notched up his second goal of the game, giving Gargrave a 4-2 win over some tough opposition.

This was the Reserves last game of the season. William Beckwith opened the scoring for Gargrave with a well taken penalty. Rolls levelled on the half time mark from a free kick. Gargrave just had the edge over Rolls and they were worthy of a winning goal which came via some good work from Sam Ashby who squared the ball to Lee Dent who calmly shot past the keeper. Dent had an excellent game working hard throughout the ninety minutes. A good way to complete the season for the Gargrave players in a match where they all gave one hundred per cent.

April 18, 2011

Gargrave almost went ahead in the first few minutes of play when a shot from Rhys Aldersley hit the upright. However it was to be a goal less half with neither side having any real goal scoring opportunities. A glancing header from Pendle gave them a 1-0 lead. Gargrave tried to create chances but the Pendle keeper was never really tested. A cruel bounce of the ball on the hard surface gifted Pendle a second and the full three points.

Skipton Town FC 1 – 3 Gargrave Reserves

At last a long awaited and well deserved three points from a game from the hard working young squad who have been thwarted by luck going against them in the results particularly at the tail end of the season. Sam Ashby opened the scoring but Skipton Town replied to level. A header from Lee Dent put Gargrave back in the driving seat and a twenty five yard screamer – wind assisted! from Chris Cox sealed the points.
