Frome Town vs. Larkhall: Match Preview

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, considers the tough challenge that the Larks will bring ahead of their Bank Holiday trip to Badgers Hill tomorrow.

Having picked up a hard-earned first ever league victory over Yate on Saturday (all the more impressive considering there were five changes from the Falmouth starting line-up), the Robins will attempt to end another hoodoo at home to Larkhall Athletic on Bank Holiday Monday.

George Rigg scored twice in a 2-2 draw against Larkhall last season

The Larks have been a tough nut to crack in recent years, particularly here at the Hill where they are unbeaten on their last five visits (including that dramatic 2-2 draw on New Year's Day) with Frome's last home success against them being a 4-0 FA Cup replay romp in 2012.

The Bath-based side also recorded a first league success of the campaign on Saturday, accounting for Tavistock 3-0 and share the same record after three fixtures of one win, one draw and one defeat.

During last season's injury crisis, defender Lewis Graham was drafted in to help out (who can forget his cannonball penalties?) and he may well line up for the visitors on Monday along with Jake Jackson, the only Frome striker to hit twenty goals in a Southern League Premier Division campaign.

Having won the second of their Western League titles in 2014, Larkhall gained Southern League status with the current campaign being their tenth in this division.

Their best finish to date is fifth in 2015 (losing in the play-off final) and have consistently achieved mid-table positions ever since (11th and 11th in the past two seasons).
