A dazzling display from Jon Davies and Rex Mannings saw us progress in the FA Trophy with a 3-0 win over Farnborough.
FA Trophy 3rd Qualifying Round
MOM: Jon Davies Goals: Mannings (2), Davies
Frome Town produced a superb performance against higher league opposition in Farnborough to progress to the next round of the FA Trophy. The scene was set as early as the second minute when a cross was whipped in from the left by Joe O’Loughlin for Rex Mannings to tap in his first goal, and shortly afterwards another couple of good chances went begging before Max Evans was called on to make a superb save from a Farnborough free kick. The score remained unchanged until half time.
The second half started strongly and in the 56th minute a Jon Davies pass found Mannings in the area who couldn’t miss and duly collected his second. 8 minutes later provider turned goal scorer as Jon Davies ran through the middle, played a one-two with a team mate before finishing comfortably into the bottom corner to conclude the scoring and secure Frome’s place in the next round, lock down restrictions permitting.
