Gargrave AFC

Gargrave AFC 4 – 1 Silsden Whitestar

December 21, 2013

This is always a difficult Saturday for clubs to raise a team but fortunately Builders Friday had not affected Gargrave as much as Silsden who could only muster ten men. The home side had the advantage of three subs on the bench, two with a wealth of experience under their belts!

The home side started brightly and continued their attacking, passing play throughout the ninety minutes and with a strong defence who were always in command a win was always on the cards.

Scorers for Gargrave were Will Beckwith with two, Christian Moon and Matthew Simpson. Silsden did score a consolation goal.


Gargrave AFC 0 – 2 Grassington FC

December 17, 2013

The blustery conditions were difficult to play in but Grassington seemed to overcome them better than their hosts and managed to score a couple of goals, not great strikes but they found the back of the net. Gargrave had very few shots on goal and never really troubled the Grassington keeper.

December 2, 2013

Polonia Patson FC  4  -  5  Gargrave AFC    A.E.T

Gargrave knew little of what to expect from their opposition on Saturday in the early stages of the Northern Plant Hire Cup. The host team play at Marley and are new this season to the Craven League having only just formed this year, the team is made up of mainly Polish players hence the name!

The game had to go into extra time and Gargrave just had the edge winning 4 – 5.

Scorers were Jonathan Chapman, Liam Jameson, Matthew Simpson ( 2 )  and Will Beckwith.

Craven FA Craven Challenge Cup….

November 16, 2013

Earby Town 1  -  3  Gargrave AFC

Gargrave started slowly and found themselves behind after five minutes. This did not deterr them as they piled the pressure on the Earby defence and pulled level after Matthew Simpson converted a penalty. Earby looked dangerous on the break but Gargrave were able to weather the storm.

Gargrave went into the second half level and found playing down the slope an advantage. Prolonged pressure led to another penalty which Simpson converted. He completed his hat trick with a well placed half volley which left the keeper wrong footed. Gargrave played the game out for a well deserved win.

Gargrave AFC 4 – 6 Pendle Renegades

November 4, 2013

This was the third meeting between these clubs in as many weeks, the latter two fixtures, one in the League and one in the Craven Cup were both in Gargraves favour with 2-0 wins in both games.

The conditions on Saturday were not favourable for playing an accurate passing game with gale force winds and heavy showers. Gargrave took the lead through their prolific scorer Matthew Simpson but Pendle soon levelled and then took the lead with a second goal. Gargrave soon replied through their player Manager Jonathan Chapman with a tap in. However Pendle scored their third of the game but Gargrave made it 3-3 by half time with another Simpson goal.

Gargrave were awarded a penalty which was well converted by man of the match Simpson. Pendle`s bullet shot levelled the scores again. The visitors continued to push forwards and a further two goals from them took the score beyond Gargraves reach. 4-6.

Not the best of football but plenty of goals!
