Bishop's Cleeve vs. Frome Town: Preview and Ticket Info

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, talks up our trip in the league, a second to scenic Gloucestershire in successive months.

All talk of Torquay's hotly anticipated visit will be put to one side as the Robins have important Southern League business on Friday night with a trip to Bishop's Cleeve.

It will be a familiar venue for barely seven weeks ago, Kayte Lane hosted a remarkable Third Qualifying Round FA Trophy tie which turned out to be the proverbial game of two halves.

Frome had Kyle Phillips to thank for keeping them in the contest with some vital early saves which restricted the home side to a 1-0 interval lead.

It was a different story after the turnaround, however, as a quickfire double from Kane Simpson sparked a five-star second half super show as they romped to a resounding 5-1 result.

Simpson will be available for selection following his recent three-match ban and, coupled with James Ollis' injury, while many feared the loss of fire power, Sam Meakes has stepped-up admirably, netting four in the last three games.

His early strike against Worthing was the Robins' FIFTIETH In only their twentieth match of the campaign (and three of those fixtures against opponents from a higher division).

Since that Trophy encounter in early October, Bishop's Cleeve have lost just the once and last week ended a run of three straight draws with a 4-2 triumph at Paulton which elevated them to seventh in the table.

They are a side who regularly find the onion bag, concede just as many and with Frome's last four away games producing 24 goals, an entertaining contest seems likely.


Match Details For those who plan on travelling to the game at Kayte Lane, tickets can be purchased on the gate with adult tickets priced at £10, concessions at £7, U18s at £3 and U14s go free according to the latest information provided.

N.B. The club anticipates that sale of tickets for the upcoming Torquay clash in the FA Trophy will begin next week!
