Frome Town 4 Slimbridge 1

After going 1-0 down to Slimbridge within the first minute, a brace of goals in each half gave Frome

what might appear to be a comfortable victory, but the match itself was much more even than the

scoreline might suggest.

Frome had the worst possible start in the first minute as a regulation back pass to the normally immaculate Kyle Phillips allowed Rudi McKinnon time to nip in, win the ball and roll it into the empty net.

However the lead only lasted two minutes as James Ollis found himself unmarked in the

Slimbridge box and headed home a right wing corner from close rangein the 3rd. In the 47th minute, after a half in which Slimbridge had possibly looked the better side for long periods, Luke Hopper gave the home side the lead as a Sam Teale downward header following a corner, allowed him to to turn and lob the ball over the stranded Lewis Adams from close range.

Ollis made it 3-1 in the 57th as he headed home at the far post after a trademark tricky run and cross

from Jon Davies, and after George Rigg had hit a 20 yard dipping volley against the underside of the

Slimbridge bar, only for the ball to bounce down on the line and out again.

In the 63rd, Hopper produce another 20 yard sublime dipping volley that this time sailed perfectly into the far corner to give Frome a 4-1 advantage, and although Slimbridge never gave up and went very close through Marley Thomas in the 75th, Frome never looked to be in any real trouble and so it proved.

Nice to see the strikers on target. They both put in a real shift for the team. Defensively much tighter since Teal ame back - Bakers seems back to form now. too. Rigg had a fine game and has had a very good season thus far . I thought our new rigt back , Jago , had a fine game and adds to the team.

A very testing away period now - Let's hope we're still in a play off position after that. I think the team still have a level to climb to this season. Interesting to see where we ae in the New Year.



Another good win to keep us in the play offs. Keep it up . John.
