Evesham United vs. Frome Town: Preview and Ticket Info

Updated: Mar 22

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, ponders another tricky away assignment.


The Robins' title challenge takes them north on Saturday to do battle with the Robins of Worcestershire, play-off chasing Evesham United. 


On paper, it looks like a tough challenge for Danny Greaves' side against a team who boast the best defensive record in Division One South with only 31 goals conceded to date. 


On the other hand, however, their home record is modest, chalking-up just four league victories at their Spiers and Hartwell Stadium, and only the bottom trio of Westbury, Exmouth and Paulton have won fewer times on home soil.



Frome themselves have tightened-up at the back impressively in recent weeks, recording three clean sheets in a row for the first time this season and with five wins and a draw from their last six, have hit the sort of form needed to push table-toppers Wimborne all the way.


                             Pld     Pts      GD 

1   Wimborne      29      63     +29

2   FROME            28       59      +25

3   Cribbs             28       51      +8


Evesham, with one win, four draws and a loss from their last six outings, currently occupy fifth spot and will be looking to emulate their achievement last season of making the play-offs and may yet have a big say in the title race as they've still to visit Wimborne (a fixture scheduled for Tuesday evening this week which fell foul of the weather).


When they came to Badgers Hill back in September,  Frome looked to have the contest sewn-up late on as a James Ollis strike made it 3-1 against ten men but a second yellow for Pierce Mitchell coupled with a second Evesham goal gave rise to an anxious finale, but 3-2 it finished and a similar outcome on Saturday would make for a happy homeward hop down the M5.

With Wimborne’s game called off this week, it further highlights just how well our groundsmen’s team did this winter to keep all the games on during our Asian monsoon season here in Somerset.

No wonder they’ve just received the most prestigious groundsmen award in the whole of non league football – The  ‘WDCUOEMT’ … The ‘We Don’’t Call um’ Off Ear Mate Trophy.’


Evesham Town?

I think we all know that Evesham is going to be a seriously difficult away game and a point would be OK for most fans I believe.

Wimborne are home to Westbury and it's difficult to see them slipping up with that one. They seem to find a goal when they need one don't they?

Bideford…
