By Reiss Silva ossett albionv garforth

Garforth Town will head into this weekend’s West Yorkshire derby against Ossett Albion looking to bounce back from back to back league defeats.

Town were in fantastic form which pushed them up into the play off positions, however their last 2 league games have ended in defeat, albeit against the divisions leading sides. Although they failed to pick up any points in their previous 2, performances in those games will give the home side a lot of confidence of picking up 3 points and getting back on track in their promotion push.

Both sides suffered Tuesday night cup defeats at home which means they can both fully concentrate on league commitments.

The away side come into this game on a dismal run. Since beating Skelmersdale 2-1 in December, Albion have suffered 3 straight defeats without ever threatening to take anything from the matches.  They have conceded 11 goals in this time, going down 4-0 twice and 3-0. Ossett sit one place and two points outside the relegation zone and are desperate for a positive result.

This encounter will see the league’s 2nd top scorers come up against the league’s 3rd worse defence which could result in a repeat of the 5-2 victory to Town earlier in the season.  Garforth’s home form has been decent this year, winning 9 of 15 games. This compared to the away record of Albion who have lost 10 out of 14 on the road points to a straight forward victory for Steve Nicol’s men.

Each of the teams need the 3 points for different reasons, both as important as the other and although stats and the league table suggests a home win, football is never that straight forward and Garforth cannot afford to take this game lightly. 

 

*Due to the freezing weather of late, there will be a pitch inspection tomorrow morning. We will update as soon as possible if the game is on/ off.

soccatots

There is the belief that certain people are just simply born to do certain stuff. Gene Kelly was born to dance, Sir David Attenborough to brush up our geography and wildlife skills and finally Jeremy Clarkson to annoy every single person on this planet. But the main question on many people’s lips is - Was Diddy born to play the beautiful game? I’m not talking about P Diddy, but in fact little Diddy - the son of Harrogate Brazilian Football Academy head coach and loyal Garforth Town fan, Stuart Owen. Brazilian Soccer Schools (BSS) Harrogate, which has a development link with Middlesbrough FC, is part of the largest football coaching organisation in the world, which started in 2003. Theo Walcott, Micah Richards and John Bostock are just some of the top players who have benefited from the syllabus.  

Recently, viewers on YouTube have been given the pleasure of witnessing footballing genius as 18 month old Diddy masters some of the most complex techniques in the modern game. Dad Stuart, whose videos and YouTubechannel are called - howtocoachdiddy, has put together a string of short clips of his son perfecting sporting techniques , ranging from chipping a goalkeeper  to accurately hitting both posts .

 Commenting on his video, Stuart said:

“I have worked with my baby son exploring, learning and having fun playing 8 different sports. We have attempted to master some of the most complex techniques of each sport. This is just a teaser from football. The time we spent playing was a fantastic way to strengthen my bond with Diddy. It also helped him to develop educational skills such as numeracy and I would recommend it to all parents. Diddy is now starting to read, tackle number work and his speech is way ahead of that of children of his age, quite astonishing.”

Stuart has had fun teaching Diddy Proficiency in 8 different sports and will be delighted that his son has the credentials to follow, if he chooses to, in the footsteps of previous Socatots participants, many signing for clubs like Leeds United. This year, 25% of Leeds United’s intake has come from Stuarts’ Harrogate Brazilian Football Academy and a trio of 8 years olds have found themselves recently singing for their Thorp Arch academy. Socatots is the world’s first footballing coaching programme for toddlers,set up by the influential Garforth Town Chairman Simon Clifford. The unique programme is designed with almost military precision, to make sure the main aim of helping the child progress in many aspects of life is achieved. These aspects , ranging from physical , educational and social , will  receive plenty of work and the participants will see the benefits like increased self-confidence and social skills , enhanced bone and muscle development and lastly know the benefits or exercise and a healthy , balanced diet.

So is little Diddy (a Town fan just like his dad) just a rare talent or is he the first of many to come out of these fascinating Brazilian Soccer Schools?

wrcfa logoDate: Tuesday 31st January 2012 - Kick Off: 19:45

Garforth Town 0 vs. 1 Farsley FC

West Riding County Cup QF Attendance: 84

Referee – Ian Johnston

The form guide went out of the window this evening as local rivals Garforth Town and Farsley FC went into battle in this highly anticipated West Riding County Cup Quarter Final.

Town Manager Steve Nichol rested 1st choice goalkeeper Ben Higginson and gave young Jack Lonergan a rare start whilst David Brown earned a recall to the starting 11 after his impressive impact as a sub against recent visitors AFC Fylde. There was a return for Garforth Old boy Simeon Bambrook who captained the men in green hoping to get one over his previous team.

After a slight delay, the game kicked off and it was the Miners who flew out of the blocks first as some early pressure was applied by David Brown on the right hand side of midfield resulting in a corner. The corner was capitalised on, cleared and then carried by Dominic Krief of Farsley who returned the pressure. After Garforth settled the game down , Farsley dinked the ball of the back four for the pacey number 10 Gareth Grant on 4 minutes who was brought down by keeper Jack Lonergan on the edge of the 18 yard box and only escaping with a yellow card. Failing to convert the corner, the ball got cleared but sent back and gifting Farley the first shot of the game as Wes Milnes struck the ball but Town got bodies in the way to relieve the pressure.

Paul Walkers shoulder injury didn’t help matters on 7 minutes as he had to be taken off for Matt Mathers. After Garforth broke down a god bit of play from the visitors, Jamie Price played the ball into Captain Ollie Hotchkiss whose long ball into Brown was knocked out for the second corner of the game. Again , Farsley hit back at the home teams attack and give their opponents a couple of scares as defensives errors gifted the ball to Duncan Williams who played through Grant , the striker causing a few early problems , but easily being dispossessed by Darren Kelly and his defence. This was followed up by the attacking threat of Town, with yet another corner. Andy Villerman, Lawrance Hunter and David Brown linking up well on the left side to win the corner. Whipped in by Hotchkiss, the cross caused a problem and after scramble in the box which was cleared, it was sent back in , only to be cleared yet again. On 25 minutes, the intensity went up a gear for both teams with Duncan Williams looking lively in the centre for the away team and Ollie spraying the ball well for his home team. But Farsley had their second shot of the match as Dominic Krief received the ball from the left only to slice it over to the delight of the home fans.

Garforth, however, carved the first clean cut chance of the game on 37 minutes as Mathers glided the ball over the top for Brown, only to squander his one on one with the keeper after a bad first touch. Moments later, both teams had a corner but both symmetrically hit the side netting. The last shot of the half came towards the end as a mistake by the Farsley midfield gave the ball to Hunter who linked up with Brown to play in the over-lapping Hotchkiss, striking the ball against the Farsley defence. After 1 minute of added time, referee Ian Johnston blew the end of the first half on a cold Yorkshire evening.

After emerging from the changing rooms, Farsley made a substitution with Ryan Watson entering the fray, who made an instant impact on 47 minutes as booked keeper Jack Lonergan gave the ball cheaply to Duncan Williams, passing to Williams who released it straight away to captain and former old boy Simeon Bambrook who calmly stroked in a side-footed shot, bent over the keeper. Not the start the home side wanted. As always though, going behind woke Town up and replied with another blocked shot at the other end when Kelly setting up Brown once again. Ollie Hotchkiss had a tight angled shot saved after a corner , won by Mathers , was knocked out only to be delivered straight away by Kelly with the ball finding Ollie who was denied by a good save.

On 65 minutes, Andy Villerman sparked a bit of life in the second half as he struck a right-footed shot which was deflected out for a corner. Lawrance Hunter delivered the ball in deep which was met by the head of Matt Dempsey, who looked in control all game, but again the keeper made a good save. Town won the ball straight away and kept the pressure building by winning yet another corner, only to be punched away sparking a Farsley attack. The impressive Duncan Williams used the ball well, playing a through ball to Gareth Grant who faked his shot, cut inside but had his shot well held by Lonaghan.

On 69 minutes, Josh Radcliffe received a yellow card for kicking the ball away, trying to slow the game down and getting a deserved booing. This booking for slowing the game down with 20 minutes left showed how much Garforth had upped the tempo and again had a shot charged down as Brown weaved in and out of the Farsley team , playing in Ben Small.

Town introduced Ben Thornton into the game in place of Ben Small on 70 minutes. Minutes later, Dave Stead came on for the men in green for Gareth Grant, whose pace had caused problems all game. A different sort of problem happened for referee Ian Johnston who had to deal with both teams on 80 minutes as a late challenge on Ben Thornton caused tempers to flair and some players having to be separated. Adam Muller came off for Ben Jones for Farsley just after the confrontation.

On 83 minutes, Hotchkiss and Jamie Price did well on the right hand side but eventually over-hitting the cross to the despair of the home support. Tireless effort all game on the left hand side meant Lawrance Hunter could run no more and Chris Fisher came on hoping to lift his team towards equalising and maybe going into extra-time.

Again a Farsley player was booked for time-wasting as Dave Stead received yellow with only 5 minutes left. Ben Thornton passed with precision to Hotchkiss whose shot somehow fell to Brown, only to block for the several time of the game. As Town had everyone forward, Farsley launched a counter and thanks to a goal line clearance from a Stead shot, Town were still in the game.

Chris Walton had a chance for Garforth late on but his shot was sliced and drifted over the Farsley net. Throwing everything but the kitchen sink, Ollie drifted in a free kick from half way and resulted in a corner thanks to miss-communication between the Keeper and the Farsley defence. Town nearly equalised as the away side were still looking shaky but hung on and cleared 2 Garforth shots of the line.

With not long left, a header by Darren Kelly was the chance of the game and was gathered easily by the Farsley keeper to deny Town any hope of an equaliser. Holding on for the final few seconds , Farsley picked up the win and will play either Guiseley AFC or FC Halifax Town in the semi-final. Steve Nichol will pull his Garforth players together and regroup for yet another home game as they play Osset Albion this Saturday.

By Reiss Silva

 

As we informed you last week striker Adam Preistley was set to miss up to 2 weeks due to straining knee ligaments in the victory over Durham. However after being in some pain a week later, Adam went back to see a physiotherapist and the diagnosis is not a good one for the club or the player.

It appears Towns top scorer has damaged his cartilage in his knee which would mean he will be on the side lines for longer than first anticipated. The length of his absence has not been confirmed yet as manager Steve Nichol feels a scan would be a good idea in order to assess whether there has been any further damage to Adam’s cruciate ligaments.  Should the results be a worst case scenario, Adam could miss several months, which would be a major blow to both the club and the player who has been in good form this season.

 'The Priest' in full flow for Garforth

This injury has hit many players over the years, with the likes of Paul Gascoigne in the 1991 FA cup final, Michael Owen in the World cup 2006 and famously Brian Clough’s career was ended due to rupturing cruciate ligaments after a clash with Bury goalkeeper Chris Harker on Boxing Day 1962.

This is not the first time an injury has occurred on the artificial surface at Durham. Rob Pacey was out for a substantial amount of time last year after suffering an injury. This raises the question again as to whether artificial pitches should be used.

Everyone at the club will be crossing their fingers in the hope that Adam hasn’t done serious damage and will be hopeful of being able to watch the player in the yellow shirt of Town again shortly.

 Garforth Town 1 (Walker 89)      AFC Fylde 2 (Booth 19, Barnes 63)

 

Referee: Thomas Bramall                                      Booked: Walton (Garforth) Fowler (AFC Fylde)

Attendance: 181

 

By Jordan Owens

Forward Adam Priestley was again absent from the Garforth Town squad as he continues to recover from an ankle injury. Matt Mathers was paired up front with Paul Walker as manager Steve Nichol made a number of changes from last week’s defeat at Curzon Ashton.  Oliver Hotchkiss captained the side as Milton Turner dropped to the bench. 

Top of the league AFC Fylde, arriving at the Genix Healthcare Stadium on the back of eight successive victories, highlighted the strength of their squad by only naming former Blackpool and Huddersfield striker Keigan Parker on the bench.

It was the visitors who made the brightest start to the match, looking confident on the ball and dominating possession.  The Miners goal came under threat in the first few minutes, Joe Booth played a superb through ball to Andy Fowler on the left flank, he cut inside brilliantly and his curling effort had Garforth goalkeeper beaten, but went just inches over the top of the goal.

Moments later it was the visitors who went close again, a Paul Jarvis corner fell to the feet of forward Mike Barnes, but he could only fire into the side netting.

On 19 minutes AFC Fylde’s dominance paid off as they took the lead through Joe Booth.  Fowler again found space on the left flank and laid the ball off for Jarvis to cross which was met by the diving header of Booth giving Higginson no chance.

The goal seemed to motivate Garforth who began to attack with real flair, Lawrance Hunter whipped in a superb free-kick which found the head of defender Matt Dempsey who was denied an equaliser after AFC Fylde goalkeeper Zac Jones made a great save tipping the ball over the crossbar.

Andrew Villerman then went on a dazzling solo run, taking on three defenders before racing into the Fylde penalty area, but he was unable to beat the advancing Jones.

Garforth continued to attack, and a route one clearance by goalkeeper Higginson sent Paul Walker clear, but hi
s first touch just gave the advancing Jones the advantage as he was able to save conceding a corner.  Hunter whipped the ball in and it fell kindly for Dempsey to hit on the volley but he sliced wide.

AFC Fylde almost increased their lead through Mike Barnes just before the break, he controlled a long ball before he cut inside to the Garforth penalty area, but Higginson made a fantastic save to deny the visiting front man, which turned out to be the last action of the half.

As the teams returned to the field, Garforth manager Steve Nichol introduced David Brown in the place of Matt Mathers as Town looked to get a foot-hold in the match.

In the early periods of the second half the game began to boil over as tempers flared, resulting in referee Thomas Bramall making his first booking of the day Garforth’s Chris Walton.

The visitors came close again to increasing the lead, forward Fowler held the ball up well for Booth to strike from distance, but Higginson denied him with another good save.

Ben Thornton was introduced to the action on 62 minutes, replacing Chris Fisher as Garforth chased an equaliser.

It was however AFC Fylde who increased their lead just a minute later though, another long range strike produced a good save by Higginson, but the Garforth goalkeeper could only put the ball into the direction of forward Mike Barnes who put the ball into the net with a classic poachers effort.

After the goal pacey Fylde striker Andy Fowler was lucky to still be on the pitch, appearing to strike defender Matt Dempsey at a Garforth free-kick, resulting in the pair squaring up.  Fowler was immediately subbed along with Paul Jarvis with Ben Waddington and Keigan Parker taking their places.  Steve Nichol made his final substitution of the day for Garforth bringing on Milton Turner in the place of midfielder Oliver Hotchkiss. 

On 82 minutes, AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor bought on Sam Nightingale for Adam Sumner as the league leaders looked to cement victory.

Substitute Parker made an immediate impact causing the Garforth defence problems; he held up well and teed Paul Walkers' free-kick against Fyldeup Booth for another long range strike which went just inches wide.

On 89 minutes a Garforth comeback was on, Paul Walker was fouled on the edge of the Fylde penalty area, he stepped up to take the free-kick brilliantly curling the free-kick into the top right corner of the goal to give Garforth hope.

Garforth piled on the pressure with Higginson even joining the attack, but some scrappy defending by AFC Fylde was enough for them to hold on to victory, as the referee blew for full time.

The Miners suffer back to back league defeats, but the Evo-Stik First Division North play-offs still remain within touching distance.

Garforth Town v AFC Fylde http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=364:garforth-town-v-afc-fylde http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=364:garforth-town-v-afc-fylde

garforthtownGarforth Town v AFC Fylde afc fylde

 Saturday 28th Jan (3pm

 

Garforth Town will be seeking to regain their play-off place when they take on table-toppers AFC Fylde this Saturday.

Garforth will feel hard done by after they put in a good display but still couldn’t prevent their 3-1 away loss at the hands of 2nd place Curzon Ashton. This was Towns first defeat in 5 but this won’t affect confidence in their camp after their recent string of performances. On the other hand, AFC Fylde will be looking to add to their magnificent run of form on the back of a 3-0 win against Osset Albion.

This will be a tricky test for Steve Nichol’s men as Fylde are on an 8 game winning streak since losing to Witton Albion on 30th November. Since losing, The Coasters seem to have found the perfect formula of building for promotion; scoring freely and not conceding, scoring 25 and keeping 5 clean sheets in 8 league games. They will be looking to consolidate this and cement their place at the top of the table going into the last 3 months of the season.

Garforth will head into this clash fully confident of causing an upset as their home performances this season has caused many a headache for the travelling sides. They have won 9 out of 14 at the Genix Healthcare Stadium and will be hopeful of making it 10. Garforth Town manager Steve Nichol said:

"We are looking forward to the visit of Fylde, they are the biggest spenders in the league with high ambitions, really they have to win this game to maintain their momentum of staying ahead of Curzon, one slight slip and that momentum can go, as they will know from beating Curzon who after losing to Fylde drew five consecutive games and lost top spot to them.  

Although being happy with the points we have picked up, know we have much to improve on. Our recent results have been hockey scores not football scores, it should not take 9 goals to win two games.  Defending is a team thing and the responsibility of the eleven men on the pitch.  If our defence can become as strong as our attack, that is our aim, we are rubbing our hands together, we know we can improve and want to keep getting better and when we do will become some side".

 

This weekend’s fixtures see 2 of Garforth's play-off rivals meet face to face as Lancaster City will host Farsley FC, giving Town the opportunity to capitalize on a possible defeat for one of these teams. Many Garforth fans will have one eye on this clash, and another eye on AFC Fylde’s frontman Richard Allen who 15 goals this season suggest he could be the main threat to Ben Higginson’s goal.

A victory for Garforth will see them trail the leaders by only 5 points , and with 3 very winnable games ahead ( facing 3 teams of the bottom 4 ) , fans will not only be looking at a play-off place but in fact maybe targeting being the team that finishes top come the end of the season.

Local and Loyal as Garforth Town train at Local Gym http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=363:local-and-loyal-as-garforth-town-train-at-local-gym http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=363:local-and-loyal-as-garforth-town-train-at-local-gym For the last few weeks, Garforth Town have taken advantage of local facilities as they have been training at the Virgin Active gym on St George Street in Leeds.virgin active

After they were  given a 2 week free membership by the gym, Garforth Town Manager Steve Nichol decided to accept the offer and the team have benefitted as a result. With the weather as bad as it has been, training would have been made much easier and enabled players to fully prepare for their up-coming matches. In the past few years, Physical strength has become a crucial aspect within football, which is one of the main reasons why Steve took this offer. Their recent results on the field are very encouraging and this could be down to the work done in the gym.

Membership Consultant, trainer and ex-player, Abbas Sadeghian, felt both Garforth Town and the gym could reap the benefits of this agreement and said:

The session we ran with the lads was quality for many reasons -  making people aware of local teams (Garforth Town), To show people the levels of performance that can be achieved within classes through the players and also advertisement for our self and your club

I did the sessions to see if we could set anything up with the club to work with the players on a one to one basis in order achieve maximum performance. “

It is yet to be seen whether or not Garforth Town will continue to use the gym but it’s something that the squad have enjoyed doing for the past few weeks.

Steve Nichol on the defeat at Curzon http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=358:steve-nichol-on-the-defeat-at-curzon http://www.garforthtown.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=358:steve-nichol-on-the-defeat-at-curzon "Decisions Favoured the Home Team"

Garforth Town manager Steve Nichol was understandably unhappy with the way his team were beaten when they had made most of the running in the top-of-the-table encounter -

 

"We are disappointed with Saturday, we always play to win and on the balance of the game we should have beaten one of the topSteve Nichol sides in this league, we controlled it for 80 minutes, worked the ball into good areas but lacked the quality which we possess when in those areas to deliver the final ball.

The game was made difficult due to the wind and the first goal was always going to be key.  In the second half our pressure was growing, we scored that first goal but, as the replays show it was wrongly ruled out.

 Curzons' second goal was also offside and the referee’s assistant apologised for his error after the game.  The referee had a fine game, but two important decisions by each assistant were wrong and favoured the home team – this is not hyperbole, the evidence is clear on our video page of the website.

The game changed on such fine margins, apparently such decisions will even themselves up over the course of the season but I don’t really buy into that, we make our own luck and the rewards we achieve are a direct result of our efforts.

We did let Curzon into the game and should have prevented each of those goals. After the first we should have stood stronger, regrouped; we are top scorers in the league, which is no mean feat and worked our way back into the game. We have shown the character to do this in previous games. To a degree we should expect failure and be prepared for it, a missed shot or goal conceded but rather than standing around waiting we must respond in the correct manner. Those moments in response to a little adversity are crucial.

Games like this will be tight and are usually lost rather than won. What I mean by that is games are mostly won not by a piece of individual brilliance but because of a mistake during a crucial moment.

That is football, it is fine margins and it was the difference on Saturday, Curzon despite being on the back foot capitalised on our mistakes.

It is one game and a good reality check, because of this game we will win another in which we maybe aren’t playing well enough to win. Our form over the last 20 games is very good, we know we can defeat the top sides in this league and have done home and away.

We learn from the Curzon game and move on. The only way the mistakes from this game can be avoided is by the correct approach to training and preparation, it will depend on two factors - how hard the players work during practice and how well they behave between practice, you can neither maintain or attain proper condition without working at both.

For the remainder of the season the players must discipline themselves to do what is expected of them for the welfare of the team if the players follow this it will be a rewarding second half to the season but if they fail to live up to these standards they will fail to some degree."
