November 7, 2010

Crosshills FC 8 – 0 Gargrave Reserves

October 30, 2010

Gargrave Reserves knew this would be their toughest game of the season when they visited the league leaders Crosshills. Their task was not helped when the squad was hit by injury and unavailability. However the young side and Chappie ( ! ) enjoyed a good half hour at the start of the first half when they held their own and kept the score at 0-0. Crosshills then began to take control and scored three goals.

Crosshills came out in the second half and dominated play claiming a further five goals. The home side played well and deserved the points but to Gargrave`s credit they worked hard right until the final blow of the whistle. Man of the match for Gargrave was Jonathan Chapman and for Crosshills Eddie Jenkins.

Gargrave Reserves 1 – 1 Skipton Town

October 23, 2010

Both teams started the game well but it was Gargrave who took the lead on twenty minutes when Robert Barker ran half the length of the pitch weaving amongst the opposition to place the ball in the bottom corner of the net. Skipton Town replied with a cross for a header at the back post to equalise.

It was a pretty equal affair in the second half with both teams striving for the winner but the Gargrave defence held firm with man of the match Luke Maude making some fantastic saves in goal to keep the score at 1-1 as the final whistle blew .

A good game for Gargrave who will have to pull out all the stops next week when they visit  high flying Cross  Hills.

Embsay Reserves 4 – 1 Gargrave Reserves

October 17, 2010

A difficult day for the young squad with their experienced captain Adrian Eyles forced to leave the field of play early on in the game through injury and Jonathan Chapman and defender Michael McLachlan unavailable. Things did not improve as the game went on with player manager Matthew Simpson aggrevating an ankle injury.  Embsay took the lead early on in the game and scored a second fifteen minutes later.

Gargrave gained a bit more confidence in the second half and their play improved though Embsay pushed forwards and scored a further two goals. Lee Dent gave the visitors some hope when he picked up a loose ball on the penalty spot and slotted the ball into the bottom corner. Robert Barker was man of the match for Gargrave and Oliver Hunter earned the praise for Embsay.

The Reserves next game is at home on Saturday against Skipton Town.

AFC Padiham 3 – 1 Gargrave Reserves

October 9, 2010

Gargrave started the game well taking the lead through player manager, Matthew Simpson,  who won a free kick from thirty yards out curling the shot into the top corner. Padiham equalised with a wind assisted cross which drifted into the bottom corner. Gargrave were disappointed when a goal was dis-allowed for offside and then Padiham took a 2-1 lead just before half time.

Gargrave battled well in the second half of play but Padiham gained a further goal in injury time despite the best efforts of the visitors stand in keeper, Martyn Jubb. Despite the scoreline this was another decent performance by the Gargrave team. Man of the match was Matthew Simpson and for the hosts, Gregg Kozminski.

Gargrave Reserves 2 – 2 AFC Padiham

October 2, 2010

Both teams took their time to settle but it was Gargrave who took the lead through a Sam Ashby tap in after a mazy run from man of the match Harry Thompson. Good saves from the Padiham keeper kept the scoreline at 1-0 as the half time whistle blew.

A penalty was awarded to the visitors in the second half of play which was duly converted. Padiham took the lead shortly afterwards with a well taken goal. Gargrave looked the better team and got their reward when Ashby smashed home the equaliser late on in the game.

Dale Markham was man of the match for Padiham.

Hellifield Sports 4 – 1 Gargrave Reserves

September 25, 2010

Gargrave travelled the short distance to newly re-formed Hellifield Sports for their local Derby match on Saturday. Hellifield got an early goal from a long throw in which went straight over the defence for an easy tap in. Gargrave enjoyed much of the possession and player manager, Matty Simpson in his first game back from injury dominated the midfield which earned him the man of the match award from his opponents. Hellifield made a rare break and created a second goal.

An own goal gave Hellifield a 3-0 lead shortly into the second half of play. Gargrave substitute, Ben Wilson played a cross and a defensive error from the Hellifield keeper gave Sam Ashby the opportunity to score a consolation goal . Gargrave began to tire and the  physically stronger side scored their fourth goal of the game. A promising performance from the young Gargrave squad. Ryan Preston was Hellifield`s man of the match.
