Gargrave AFC

Fixtures Updated…..

August 19, 2013

Please check the new list of fixtures as the league have altered some dates and also brought a game forward from the original ones they gave us.

First game now will be on Saturday 31st August away vs Earby Town.

The Reserve team has now been officially withdrawn from both the League and the Craven FA due to insufficient players.

Very disappointed that we had no support with clearing the showfield on Saturday night. Therefore we have decided that the donation from the show committee will now be given to a charity rather than the football club. The charity chosen will probably be Manorlands Hospice.

Reserve team withdrawal…..

August 10, 2013

Sadly due to a lack of players we are having to notify both the Craven League and Craven FA that we have no option but to withdraw our Reserve Squad from both the League and FA cup games.

We have plenty of players to comfortably run a first team but are short of at least eight to ten regular reliable players who can turn up each week to fulfill Reserve team games.

The First team have a friendly match on Tuesday evening on the football field ( August 13th ).

Don`t forget clearing of the showfield from 6.p.m on Saturday 18th August. The show committee give a good donation to the club for this work and without that sum last year the club would have run at a loss. Plenty of people there and it is soon done.

First fixtures….

August 3, 2013

It is with great regret that we have had to withdraw our Reserve team from the League and the Craven FA due to insufficient players.

Last Call…..

August 3, 2013

We need to know if there is more player interest to continue with a Reserve squad at the club. There are sufficient players ( with enough to cover injuries and unavailability ) for one team at the moment but not quite enough players for two squads. We would also need a Manager and Assistant who would be committed to getting a full squad together every week and sending in all the online match details. Players may not be aware of the restrictions which are levied by the Craven League committee. If we cancel a game because of lack of players we are imposed with a fine of £25 per game with points awarded to the opposition. Incorrect details from a match incurr a fine of £5 for each incorrect or late item. Consistent offending of these rules can be costly and also mean a request to attend a League disciplinary meeting. It is with all this in mind that we need to know if we can comfortably field two sides this year.

The Reserves first game is scheduled for Saturday 31st August, at home to LMS.  Training is each Tuesday night from 6.p.m on the bottom Green ( end of East Street and South Street ) Gargrave. Registration forms available.

Please, we would like all players to help with the one fund raising event which we request them to help with – the clearing of Gargrave show field on the evening of the 17th August from 6.p.m – an easy job if there are enough people – not if there are three of us like last year! The show committee donate £200 to the club and without that amount we would this year have been working at a loss.
