A more detailed report on Gamesley’s Derbyshire Cup Tie will follow in the next few days (just checking a names where I don’t recognise the players) so if you don’t want to know the score ignore the next paragraph !

Saturday 17th October saw Gamesley’s first team take it first try in the senior Derbyshire Cup with a home tie which was lost 5 – 3 to Shirebrook Town. The reserves unfortunately shared a similar fate to the first team losing 6 – 2 away to Golborne Sport Reserves.

Next Saturday (24th October) sees no football on Gamesley in terms of either the first or reserves, with the first team returning to league action with an away tie to Garswood United, and the reserves hopefully making a better start to their time in the Derbyshire Cup with a first round tie away to Dronfield Town.

For Gamesley Villa the 12’s don’t appear to have played on Saturday (or at least there was no details on the FA Full Time website) the 11’s didn’t have a game this week and the 14’s were away to Heyside JFC 14’s who beat them 5 – 2.

Next week sees the 14’s at home (25th October) in Cup action with a 2nd round cup match against Heyside JFC 14’s (here’s hoping for better result), the 11’s also in 2nd round Cup action away to Moston Valley 11’s, with the 12’s on Saturday away to NJ Wythenshawe.

A good Saturday for Gamesley’s first team with a 2 – 1 win away to Billinge FC, the reserves however fared less well ending their home tie in 1 – 1 all draw, following a little bit of a lapse in the defence during the second half.

This coming Saturday (17th October) sees Gamesley’s first team take its first steps in this year’s Derbyshire Cup competition with a home tie against Shirebrook Town FC – Kick off 2.15pm.

This will be the first team’s first try at this level of the Derbyshire Cup and the higher level Northern Counties East League Shirebrook Town should make for a interesting tie.

The reserves continue on with the league campaign with an away tie against Golborne Sports Reserves.

Gamesley Villa 12’s side won 3 -2 at home to Brendon Bees JFC 12s, the 11’s side won 5 – 3 against Moston Brook 11’s, and the 14’s had no game.

Football News – Match Report – Gamesley v Trafford Reserves

Capper head Gamesley's 4th Goal

Capper head Gamesley's 4th Goal

With 5 players missing from the first team squad Gamesley put in a terrific performance, but it did not start well with Gamesley falling behind in the first two minutes to a Trafford Goal.

The Gamesley midfield were caught dwelling on the ball and they were quickly disposed and Trafford made their way forward, Fewtril who was making his debut in goals slipped trying to get back in position and the Trafford forward make no mistake.

However Gamesley rallied and started to apply pressure on the visitor’s goal and after 25 minutes from a free kick played in from Daz Scowcroft, Dewhurst headed home the equaliser.

Gamesley then continued to apply pressure and just after the first half hour of the game, Dewhurst was hacked down in the area by a Trafford defender, but was uninjured and able to get up and score the penalty putting Gamesley ahead.

About 15 minutes into the second half Gamesley’s defence had a lapse of concentration and let the visitors equalise, but this again spurred the home side on and they got their act together and pushed on. Chapman was substituted for Mulryan who had worked tirelessly throughout the game. 25 minutes into the second half Scowcroft hit a superb free kick and Mulryan scored with a glancing header.

The home side pushed on and after 40 minutes of the second half team Captain Capper sealed the point the points with a power header from a corner making it 4 – 2.

Taylor on his first game of the season was brilliant at the back along with Biggs and a great performance from the whole team.

This coming Saturday (3rd October) sees a visit from Linotype/Cheadle HN who are currently one point behind Gamesley in the league.

Team : Fewtril, Salthouse,Taylor S, Taylor C, Daz Scowcroft, Swift, Capper, Dean Scowcroft, Briggs, Dewhurst, Chapman – Subs : Mulryan, Mainwaring, Redmond
