Gargrave AFC

Gargrave Reserves 0 – 4 Ighton Leigh Reserves

September 19, 2010

Ighton Leigh Reserves started the game well, maintaining a good percentage of the possession. Their first goal came on the half hour mark and the second came just before the break.

Gargrave had their chances to score but it was Ighton Leigh who were to produce two more goals to double their tally. Gargrave continued to work hard and their young line up of players marshalled by their more experienced  man of the match Jonathan Chapman finished the game well. A good all round team performance from the hosts. Man of the match for the Lancashire side was Gary Hodgkiss.

A disappointing start to the season for Gargrave`s  Ben Ashby who unfortunately ended the afternoon in Airedale Hospital where he was found to have broken his ankle.

Gargrave Reserves 0 – 2 Earby Town FC

September 11, 2010

Gargrave Reserves were pleased with their performance despite Earby winning the game 2-0. Gargrave started with a weakened team due to cricket and work commitments. Martin Eyles stepped in as keeper and young Josh Prell made a good debut. The young squad played extremely well despite the absence of some of their stronger players. It was level pegging at half time but Earbys two good strikes early on in the second half gave them the points. Robert Barker earned the man of the match award for the hosts whilst Gary Davis earned the plaudits for the visitors.

Grindleton FC 6 – 2 Gargrave FC

September 11, 2010

Player manager Matt Brown was sadly out of action after a mid week car accident and his team were further hit by unavailablity and injuries.

Grindleton took the lead but Ben Brown levelled the score. Grindleton took advantage as Gargrave began to falter and they scored a further five goals. However man of the match Christian Moon did restore some faith when he scored Gargraves second.

Gargrave AFC 1 – 2 Grindleton FC

September 5, 2010

It was a game of four penalties on Saturday when Gargrave hosted their first game of the new season against Grindleton FC. However only one found the back of the net courtesy of Gargrave`s Christian Moon. The host clubs striker Ben Brown had his previous two attempts saved by the Grindleton keeper whilst Adam Hudson saved Grindletons penalty strike.

Grindleton scored twice, a goal in each half. Unfortunately Gargrave went down to ten men when a red card was shown,a  decision which surprised both teams .

Gargrave travel to Grindleton next Saturday for the return match hoping to reverse the score.

Pendle Renegades 5 – 0 Gargrave Reserves

September 1, 2010

This was the first game of the new season for Reserve team Manager/Player Matty Simpson. Unfortunately it was one for him to watch from the sidelines after receiving some ligament damage to his ankle in a pre season friendly which has also put paid to him finishing a very successful cricket season with Bradley. It was also a debut game for five of Gargraves players with three of them just reaching the minimum age requirement. Pendle were always going to be tough opposition, a good team, well marshalled with some strong players . Gargrave`s first team had played them a couple of weeks previously in a pre season friendly when they had drawn 3-3.

Pendle started strongly and the Gargrave defence did well to hold them for much of the first half, the hosts first goal came from a cross into the box, 1-0 at half time. Pendle scored a second and Gargraves best chance of the game came after substitute Stuart Dollan played a through lob to Andrew Smithson who blasted the ball straight at the keeper. Pendle managed to break a further three times to claim a five goal win. The game was played in good sporting spirit with the better side earning the full three points. Harry Thompson in central defence earned the man of the match award for Gargrave and Matthew Nutter earned the plaudits for Pendle.

Oakworth FC 1 – 3 Gargrave Reserves

February 21, 2010

A  welcome three points for Gargrave Reserves who have been thwarted with bad luck for most of the season. Man of the match Paul Wilkin took the lead with a long range strike. The visitors continued to play some decent football but a penalty in the first half of stoppage time allowed Oakworth to level.

The hosts came out strong in the second half but found the Gargrave defence hard to penetrate. A good run from Matt Brown was abruptly halted by an Oakworth defender and a penalty was awarded and duly despatched by Brown. Oakworth began to tire on the heavy pitch and Brown took advantage with a one on one with the keeper to score a third for Gargrave. Man of the match for Oakworth was Joe Slater.

The Reserves will visit Chatburn FC on Saturday for a league game whilst the First team will be at home in the Northern Plant Hire Trophy vs Rolls Royce. The Plant Hire Trophy game will kick off at 1.30.p.m.

Gargrave Reserves 1 – 8 Skipton LMS Reserves

February 15, 2010

Gargrave started brightly with the first chance of the game going to Jonathan Chapman after some good interplay between Nick Kendall and Stuart Dollan. LMS went just wide and then a free kick was sent over the bar. The visitors best chance was thwarted by some excellent defending by Aidie Eyles. A goal mouth scramble created the first goal for LMS  when the ball just trickled over the line inches away from a defenders extended leg. Gargrave continued to attack with a lob from Jodie Lonsdale saved and a shot from Lonsdale just wide. Stuart Dollan was on target but again the shot was saved. Michael McLoughlan tried a shot but again the Gargrave luck or seasons lack of it was against them. likewise a long range effort from Lonsdale. An easy shot from LMS gave them a 2-0 lead and a defensive error gifted them a third. Gargrave cricket legend Ed Stanley weaved his way into the box and scored a well taken goal to lift the hosts spirits and keep them in with a chance. 3-1 at half time.

Gargrave came out in the second half the stronger of the two squads but their chances just lacked the finishing composure. Any attacks from LMS seemed to result in a goal and the visitors were soon 6-1 to the good. To Gargraves credit they never relented in their play and continued to pressurize LMS throughout the half. A long range shot from defender Ben Ashby went over the bar but LMS came back scoring a further two against the run of play. Ben Ashbys free kick was on target but was headed out by an LMS defender. A game where LMS deserved the points but perhaps not by the margin. Nick Kendall made a welcome return to the squad after injury and was awarded the man of the match award.

The Reserves are away at Oakworth next Saturday.

Rolls Royce FC 6 – 3 Gargrave AFC

February 15, 2010

Gargrave took the lead against a well organised Rolls Royce side when Paul Wilkin scored from a one on one with the keeper. Rolls equalised and then created a couple more goals. Joel Timmins scored the visitors second with a close range header and Ben Brown added a third from a free kick but it was not enough to take any points from the game with Rolls having a final tally of six goals. Man of the match for Gargrave was defender Matt Brennand.
