Bemerton Heath Harlequins 3 - 1 Frome Town

Frome continued their winless start with a defeat at newly-promoted Bemerton Heath Harlequins.

The Robins started strongly with James Ollis, arguably Frome's best player on the night, creating a half-chance for strike partner Ben Griffith who fired just wide of the post.

Frome regularly created opportunities, Ollis going closest before winger Reece Rusher went on a great run and had his shot saved by the home side's goalkeeper.

After the break, Frome started where they left off when a Rusher corner found Ollis whose thunderous header gave the Robins the lead.

Bemerton responded with a well-worked equaliser to shock the travelling Frome fans.

Rusher then got sent off against his old side as the Salisbury-based side upped the tempo, grabbing a second goal which just evaded Kyle Phillips' gloves.

Then Warren Maidment received a second booking for a foul on Bemerton attacker. The home side finished on a high, scoring a cracker from outside of the box to settle the game.

The nine men of Frome tried creating chances, Griffith going close again, but it was an evening not meant to be.

Next up for the Robins is an away trip to Falmouth in the FA Cup Preliminary Round this coming Saturday at 3 pm, for which coach tickets to travel with the matchday squad are available at the link below

He should try expanding his vocabulary instead of shouting out crude expletives all the time - there's lots of women and children in the crowd these days and frankly it's rather tiresome to many and offensive to others.

Not sure how many of our 'sent off' players will be available for our FA Cup tie but we could really do with a bit of a run in that to lift the fans. Even a draw w…
