LADIES: Ash Rangers 0-4 Frome Town

The Robins secured the league title after comfortably beating Ash Rangers 4-0, leaving them one game away from an unbeaten season.

The rearranged fixture took place on a perfect 3G pitch at Huish where Frome had the wind in their faces for the first half so football on the deck was the order for the day.

3 minutes into the game Frome took the lead with Underhill tucking away a lovely through ball from Petteford into the bottom corner to settle the nerves of Justin prowling the touchline.

Both teams spent the next 40 minutes trying to get the ball down and play in a tight affair in midfield with Frome’s defenders dealing with any of Ash’s forward advances with hard work and determination.

Ash’s main threat seemed to come from their long throw ins but Restorick marshalled her 6 yard box adequately.

With the 2nd half underway the next goal was an important one and on 50 minutes Seviour and Underhill combined well to steal the ball from Ash’s main play maker deep in the home teams half on the right leaving Underhill to turn goal provider, this time feeding Petteford who’s well placed shot with the outside of her right foot nestled nicely in the bottom corner.

Frome now looked solid right from the back and camped high in the Ash half looking to grab more goals and on 57 minutes did just that when the impressive Harris spotted the home keeper off her line and instinctively shot into the top corner from 25 yards out leaving the keeper a spectator.

Frome now with all the ball grabbed a 4th after a quick throw in from Ratcliffe found Underhill who fed Seviour down the right who picked out Christmas in the box who stole in to score her 1st of the game.

Well done to the whole team today worthy champions a top performance by all to take the league title in style with the player of the game chosen by Kevin Snelgrove going to Harris for her energy in midfield and great finish.

Also a big thank you to Dom Etherden and Mark Bevan for their generous match sponsorship and support.

Frome’s last league game isn’t until the 7th of April which is against Portishead Reserves away.
