Hunter delighted with draw as injury list is starting to become a novel!

Last word on this weekend’s action goes to none other than Garforth Town manager Rob Hunter, who saw his side battle out an impressive 1-1 draw with neighbours Knaresborough Town – watched by 240 frozen spectators on a bitterly cold afternoon. (Main photograph by Craig Dinsdale)

“The game was played in a great spirit and although Knaresborough dominated the possession they never really hurt us,” Hunter said.

“Alex Low was again in commanding form with Beaston and Turner absolutely brilliant defensively for us. The result was a real effort considering we were down to 13 fit players and lost Sean Hunter and Aodhan Brownlee to injuries during the game.”

“It seems to be a recurring problem for us and this was compounded when we lost Aiden Kearsley and Mark Ferguson after being in a car accident after training on Tuesday, fortunately only 3-4 weeks out but it just about sums up our luck in this department at the moment. I counted 8 unavailable on Saturday plus Sean Keyes, Max Elliott and Chris Howard long termers so the results we’ve had recently have been brilliant under the circumstances.”

“Taking nothing away from Knaresborough because they have an incredible squad there but I felt fairly comfortable in the second half and substitute Curtly Martin-Whyatt nearly won it for us at the end.”

“The main thing is we never gave in and the Lads deserved their point, man of the match for Garforth was Alex Low.”
