Garforth Town Man of Match: Raul Fletcher/Mat Devlin
The Garforth youngsters were subjected to a heavy defeat at high flying Harrogate Town. Strangely the first 20 minutes was a tight affair with little between the teams but goals change games and Garforth were made to pay dearly for their slackness in allowing the first goal. Harrogate were permitted to enact a short corner routine. The ball was smashed against the crossbar and bounced up and down on the line before the Harrogate forward reacted it first to head in from close range. Within a further 8 minutes Harrogate were 3-0 up. Both goals came from low shots from the edge of the box - one bounce in front of the keeper and the plastic pitch did the rest - Garforth keeper Charlie Fairbairn was quickly learning that shots pick up pace from the bounce on this pitch. The Town now looked in deep trouble and before they had time to compose themselves the home side hit them twice again both derived from balls played from the bye line as Harrogate were allowed to get in behind out wide. 5-0 to the home side at half time. Harrogate had moved the ball about quickly and with Garforth having just the one fit substitute things did not look good for the second half. Garforth reshuffled their pack and moved the experienced play makers, Mat Devlin and Raul Fletcher, into the back four and in terms of preventing a real spanking the move did the trick. Although Harrogate had more possession in the second half the game was once again quite tight and Harrogate had to be thankful for a super 30 yard dipping shot for their only goal right up to virtually the last kick of the game when they scored a second from a corner. Sandwiched in between the 2 goals was a superb quadruple save from Garforh keeper Charlie Fairbairn.
