FAC: Frome 0 - 1 Tiverton

Frome Town slumped to defeat in the FA Cup first qualifying round at Badger’s Hill.

The home side had the best of the early exchanges with the visiting keeper spilling a shot from Humphries in the 3rd minute with Frome unable to capitalise and Starr curling a shot just wide in the 5th after some lovely build up play.

It was the visitors who took the lead however on 12 minutes as Frome appealed for a foul on half way play continued and a cross from the right was inevitably fired home by ex Frome striker Kane Simpson.

Tiverton should have doubled their lead right before half time but a last ditch sliding tackle from Maidment with the open goal beckoning averted the danger.

The second half was tougher and somewhat without incident with neither goalkeeper troubled, other than Locke having to leave the field injured and Maidment having to take his shirt for the last 10 minutes.

Tiverton shaded the game and deserved their victory and Frome need to focus on getting back to the standards they have set.

Another disappointing performance but we were somewhat depleted. We created very, very little. Not overly impressed with Tivi, though, Kane & Joe had decent games for them. Had we had a full side out then I think it would have been a close game.

I thought Maidment & Hallet did well defensively for us. .After taking off Teale & Evans , two of our best players , Seth pulling up lame and reducing us to ten men just about summed up our day. It was like an A&E dept. yesterday!

Again ... the crowd of just over 300, a 100 down on the Totten game - where have all our young supporters disappeared to?

Nice to see Ollis back. bu…
