Frome returned to winning ways in the league after a professional performance against Bemerton Heath Harlequins.

Goals from Sam Teale, Jon Davies and Zak Drew helped the Robins to their first league win in three games, which will help them keep up to speed with the likes of Wimborne, Cribbs and Bideford.

Goals from Jon Davies and Sam Teale helped Frome secure all three points.

This was already the third meeting between the two sides this season, the first at Badgers Hill, and the other two results couldn’t have had more contrasting outcomes, with Frome losing 3-1 in the reverse league fixture, but avenging themselves in the FA trophy just a month later winning 3-0.

The BA11 side got off to the perfect start in the seventh minute, after a flurry of early corners, one arrived to Davies on the edge of the box, who released a fierce shot which appeared to flick off of Teale before hitting the back of the net, giving Frome the perfect start.

It could have easily been two just nine minutes later, Ross Staley did well to win the ball in the middle and play Davies through, however keeper, Patrick Creese, was equal to his effort and made a fine save.

Kane Simpson was causing problems as he always does and in the 20th minute, he received a pass down the left, ran forward, cutting in and out before sending an effort towards goal, one that was comfortable for keeper Creese.

The game did settle down after this and Bemerton did grow in to it, George Britton became a real threat from crosses and set pieces but the Frome backline dealt with everything magnificently.

Half-time arrived, at a good time for Frome, a goal ahead, but the Somerset side knew they’d have to be weary of a fast start from the Heathens.

And that is exactly what happened, Bemerton started on the front foot and in the 47th minute were denied a goal only by the linesman's flag who deemed the attacker finished the cross off from an offside position.

Frome were under heavy pressure for the following ten minutes, but managed to successfully weather the storm, the grit and determination the side had shown thus far was appreciated by the BA11 faithful.

The hard-work paid off in the 70th minute through Davies, who successful chased down keeper Creese, blocking his attempted clearance before taking it around him and slotted in to an empty net, giving Frome a bit of breathing room.

Eight minutes later Frome nearly made it three, substitute Will Taylor put a cross in which was met by Staley but his effort appeared to hit Sam Meakes which nullified the attack.

However in the 90th minute, Frome did get a deserved 3rd goal through Drew who finished off a low cut back from Tyson Pollard securing three goals and a crucial three points for the Robins.

The games are coming thick and fast, a tricky away fixture to Bristol Manor Farm will prove to be a tricky test, but with it being one of Frome’s games in hand they’ll be looking to close that gap between them and the teams above them!

Back on the winning track and although we weren’t brilliant by any stretch of the imagination today, on a difficult pitch, we again did enough to claim the points and three goals into the bargain to boost our goal difference.

The Quins dominated the last quarter of the first half and the first quarter of the second , played some really nice football but couldn’t get the goal that they desperately needed to get back in it.

The Robins nearly always find that goal at ‘ The Hill’ even when times are tough and have a very cussed and determined way about them when they’re up against it – as they were today at times.

Although Joe Budd , who’s…
