Gargrave AFC

Gargrave AFC 0 – 2 Skipton LMS

March 28, 2011

Gargrave met near neighbours Skipton LMS in the Northern Plant Hire Cup on Saturday. The first minutes went all in Gargraves favour though a shot on the break from LMS forced a diving save from keeper Adam Hudson. A free kick from Richard Orme went straight to the opposing keeper. A close range effort from LMS on the half hour mark was enough to give them a slender 1-0 lead.

Minutes into the second half a one on one with the keeper saw a resulting lob find the back of the net to put LMS 2-0 ahead. Paul Wilkins lob went over and Gargrave continued to put on the pressure. A great shot from Orme was parried over the bar. There was little to choose between the two teams but LMS just had the more strength in their attacking play.

Earby Town FC 8 – 0 Gargrave Reserves

March 28, 2011

The is was a top vs bottom of the table clash. Gargrave Reserves more than held their own for the first thirty five minutes of the game but as soon as Earby got their vital first goal the floodgates then opened. Stand in keeper Tom Wood  performed extremely well and but for his efforts the scoreline may have been greater.

Gargrave AFC 1 – 2 Rolls Royce FC

March 20, 2011

Another disappointing day for Gargrave in a performance which deserved a draw at the very least. The hosts made an excellent start when they took the lead three minutes into the game. Paul Wilkin claimed the final header after some good attacking approach play. Rolls looked to be on for an equaliser with a one on one with the keeper but Adam Hudson reacted quickly and averted the threat. Luck was against Gargrave when Rolls  ran through a static defence to level the scores with an easy tap in.

Gargrave continued to attack in  the second half of the game. Paul Wilkin was gifted with an open net after a cross from Ben Brown had skimmed the bar but his shot went over. Richard Orme came close but it was a second defensive error which allowed Rolls to take the lead. Man of the match for Gargrave was substitute Josh Town.

Gargrave hope that luck will be on their side on Saturday when they entertain near neighbours, Skipton LMS in the Northern Plant Hire Trophy game. Kick off 1.30.p.m.

WFC Clitheroe 3 – 2 Gargrave AFC

March 14, 2011

Gargrave made the long journey to Great Harwood to play WFC Clitheroe. The hosts had a 2-0 lead in the first half of play but a half time team talk seemed to do the trick for Gargrave. They were on equal terms in the second half of play, their first goal coming from Ben Brown who neatly chipped the keeper. He was instrumental in the second when his free kick was parried by the keeper to the head of Christian Moon who made no mistake. Gargrave looked the more threatening and were creating more chances but WFC Clitheroe were to score the winning goal on the break with just five minutes of play remaining. Richard Orme was man of the match for Gargrave.

Gargrave Reserves 1 – 4 Hellifield Sports

March 14, 2011

It was local derby day on Saturday when Gargrave Reserves were hosts to Hellifield Sports. The visitors were taken by surprise when Gargrave were more than a match for them despite their lowly position in the league. Gargrave maintained much of the possession and played a decent passing game well marshalled by their player managers Jonathon Chapman and Adrian Eyles. Hellifield claimed the first goal of the game on the twenty minute mark but Robert Barker was quick to equalise. The young Gargrave side continued to play some good football but were unable to convert their chances.

The visitors pulled a goal ahead in the second half when the ball went through the defence, an equaliser almost came but the chance was headed off the line by a Hellifield defender. Gargrave continued to push forwards with the pace of Craven Minor Oliver Wild always a threat to the Hellifield defence but like the first half the hosts were unable to convert their chances into goals. Hellifield took advantage of their opportunities and scored a further two goals to take the score to 4-1. They were awarded a penalty but this was saved by keeper Luke Maude. A  share of the points would have been a fairer result  after a sterling performance from Gargrave.
