Embsay FC 3 – 2 Gargrave FC

February 28, 2011

Both teams were in agreement to switch the game to the all weather pitch at Sandylands as the Embsay ground was waterlogged.

Gargrave dominated the first half of play and looked comfortable on the all weather surface where they passed the ball well. A Ben Brown free kick opened the scoring and following some good work on the wing a cross found Brown who was left free to deliver into an open net.

The second half saw a total role reversal with Embsay enjoying possession and taking control of the proceedings. They scored three goals to take the lead with no reply from Gargrave.

Gargrave Reserves 2 – 5 Embsay Reserves

February 28, 2011

Gargrave knew this would be a tough game after meeting the same opponents last week in the Craven FA  Norman Pratt Cup quarter final where they were on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline.

The first ten minutes of the game saw a fair distribution of the action but it was Embsay who scored with a long low shot against the run of play. The visitors were then awarded a penalty which was easily converted. Gargrave in turn were awarded a penalty on the half hour mark but this was saved by the keeper. The hosts continued to play with great spirit and a free kick from William Beckwith went  just wide but a goal mouth scramble gave Gargrave some hope as Lee Dent just got the final touch to bring his team back into the game.

Embsay extended their lead in the second half after a one on one with the keeper and a fourth goal was scored from a glancing shot. Luke Maude made a great save to stop Embsay from extending their 4-1 lead. Gargrave continued to push forwards and worked hard in the now heavy ground conditions. Gargrave were rewarded for their lively all round team performance when Robert Barker scored their second goal with a superb shot .Unfortunately it was Embsay who had the last word when they scored a late goal to bring the final score to 5-2.

Barnoldswick Town 4 – 1 Gargrave AFC

February 20, 2011

This was always going to be a difficult fixture for Gargrave but as it drew nearer it became harder still with players on holiday, injured and unwell. Eleven players were available.

Barnoldswick dominated the first half of play and though Hudson in the Gargrave goal made some good saves, the hosts were able to go into the second half with a 3-0 cushion.

Gargrave improved in the second half and created a number of chances but the Barnoldswick defence were quick to act. Ben Brown scored a consolation goal ten minutes from time and it was disappointing when a defensive error gifted Barnoldswick their fourth.

Embsay Reserves 4 – 1 Gargrave Reserves

February 20, 2011

The quarter final fixture of the Craven FA  Norman Pratt Trophy was switched to the ground at Gargrave on Saturday due to the wintery conditions at Embsay.

Embsay attacked from the very start and almost scored two minutes into the game when a shot from a corner ball hit the bar. Shortly afterwards they made no mistake when a long range shot gave stand in keeper Martin Eyles no chance . Gargrave worked hard but were given few attempts on goal.Embsay scored their second.

Gargrave began to come back into the game in the second half of play though it was Embsay who scored to take them into a 3-0 lead. The hosts continued to attack and a consolation close range goal from Harry Thompson gave them re-newed confidence. However it was Embsay who had the last word with a great strike into the top corner of the net in a game which saw them take a worthy place in the semi final of the cup competition.

Gargrave 1 – 2 WFC Clitheroe

February 14, 2011

Neither side showed much potential in a lack lustre game with both teams getting off to a slow start. Poor passing let much of the play down. Clitheroe were awarded a penalty for an alleged hand ball but this was well saved by the keeper Adam Hudson.

With a 0-0 scoreline at half time, things could only improve. A well worked solo effort saw Ben Brown score from an acute angle. Clitheroe levelled. Gargrave pushed forwards but to no avail and it was Clitheroe who took the points with a late goal minutes from time. On the teams performances a share of the points would have been a fairer reflection on the game.
