Gargrave Reserves 2 – 1 Hellifield Sports FC

April 22, 2012

Gargrave Reserves won the league title on Saturday with a close fought game against their nearest rivals Hellifield Sports.

Hellifield were the quicker off the mark in the opening exchanges with Dale Denham having a couple of decent chances, one going just wide and the other saved by the feet of keeper, Stewart Wilson. The game continued with opportunities for both teams but neither could convert their chances. The deadlock was broken when a strong run from Denham saw him one on one with the keeper and he made no mistake. John Beckwith levelled from a close range scamble. Player Manager Jonathan Chapman cleared from the line to keep the score level at the half time break.

Matthew Simpson had a shot just over in the opening minutes of the second half and Tom Varey came close after some good work from Liam Cartman. The latter then saw his free kick parried away from goal by the Hellifield keeper. A great header from Matthew Simpson gave Gargrave the lead they were looking for and Hellifield did not help their cause when they lost a player who was shown a red card.

Three points to the hosts in their last game of the season and celebrations knowing that the Division Two league title was officially won. One remaining game on the 8th May, the final of the Division Two league title, opponents yet to be decided.
