Frome Town vs. Bemerton Heath Harlequins: Preview

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, takes a look at a tricky first game of the calendar year!

After that washout at Larkhall, the Robins will be looking to kick-off 2024 by extending their impressive home record (unbeaten in the league since last March, a run of fourteen games) on Saturday against Southern League newcomers Bemerton Heath Harlequins. 

It will be the sides' third meeting of the campaign, but the first at Badgers Hill and the previous two could not have had more contrasting outcomes. 

In the league encounter back in August, Frome took an early second-half lead before pressing the self-destruct button and, down to nine men by the final whistle, were well beaten by three goals to one.

The following month, on the back of a run of six wins from seven, they returned to the A-Class Arena and ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in the Trophy and it's that kind of form they will endeavour to recapture in order to keep up with leading pair Wimborne and Cribbs.

Bemerton too, were without a match on New Year's Day and after successive promotions, have made a more than decent start to life in Division One South, currently occupying fifth place. 

They've won five times on the road already this season, an achievement no other side can better and were victorious in their last two fixtures either side of Christmas (3-2 at Bashley and 2-1 at home to Tavistock) which ended a run of four games without a win.

Danny Greaves has warned previously of the pitfalls of playing newly-promoted sides and this intriguing encounter will be a good test of the Robins' own promotion credentials.

Yet another couple of weekend home games coming up with Bristol M F away in between. Firstly we have the Quins arriving. Their last 7 games have produced 3 wins, 3 losses and a draw.- so they're a bit of a mixed bag! They sit just 1 point behind us. Hopefully this monsoonesque weather will relent and 'The Hill' will be filled with yet more expectancy and vibrancy than H20. We can't catch Wimborne. They had a bumper crowd last week 0f 1,229 against Bashley. They sit 6 points above us now . Cribbs also won, so we sit in fourth, as Bideford's recent good form elevates them into the top four - it's getting very interestin…
