September 12, 2013

Silsden Whitestar 6 – 1 Gargrave AFC

September 9, 2013

Silsden won by a wide margin on Saturday so Gargrave are hoping for better luck on Wednesday evening when they play their first home game of the season.

Defender Matthew Brennand had another good game to take the man of the match award for the second consecutive week and young Jamie Poulter played well on his debut.

Earby Town 4 – 1 Gargrave AFC

September 1, 2013

A disappointing scoreline for the first outing of the season with an early injury to established defender Dan Thompson.

Tom Varey scored the lone goal for Gargrave but then he too had to leave the field through injury.

Matt Brennand was solid in defence which earned him the man of the match award from the opposition.

Earby Town 3 – 3 Gargrave AFC

May 14, 2013

Gargrave knew that even a win was not good enough for them to take second spot in the Division One table after Cononley gained three points a couple of days before with a comprehensive win over bottom placed Rolls.

A number of players were absent due to work commitments, holidays and cricket but fortunately some of the Reserve team players were able to step into the breach having already completed their season.

The points were shared with each team scoring three goals.

The final countdown….

May 8, 2013

Gargrave keep up their winning streak with a narrow victory over Silsden Whitestar on Saturday ( 3 – 4 ) and a comprehensive win over Pendle FC  mid week ( 5-0 ). The latter played in good spirit with excellent sportsmanship and respect from both sides.

Everything now rests on Gargrave`s last game away at Earby FC   and Cononleys game against the bottom placed team Rolls FC. If both Gargrave and Cononley win their game then Cononley will take the runners up place in Division One. If Cononley loose and Gargrave win then Gargrave get the runners up spot.

Six more points…..

April 29, 2013

Gargrave had two more wins recently against Oakworth and Wilsden.

A slender 1-0 win over league leaders Wilsden still keeps Gargrave in touch with the leading clubs at the top of the table.

Pendle Renegades 2 – 0 Gargrave Res

April 25, 2013

Gargrave travelled to Earby for their final game of the season against Pendle Renegades.

The home team came out of the traps quickly clearly up for the game as they were chasing an automatic promotion place. There was little to choose between the teams though in the opening 30 minutes with both defences on top limiting the forwards chances. Pendle nearly took the lead from a corner but a close range header produced a great reflex save from the Gargrave keeper. Gargrave worked hard and tried to utilise the big pitch but didn’t offer too much going forward. Pendle took the lead with a counter attack a few minutes before half time.

Gargrave had the luxury of a substitute and brought on fresh legs just after the break. The second half was a fairly uneventful affair with the home side playing long ball football at every given opportunity. They doubled their lead to take the game of out Gargraves reach.

Gargrave came close to their first shot on target when Gaz Lord’s powerful slide tackle turned into an attempt on goal, this however summed up Gargraves night. Gargrave now have to rely on the teams below them to not pick up any points if they are to survive relegation.

It’s been a tough season for Gargrave but, if the current team they have now played from the first game of the season it may well have been a different story.
