Long-serving club captain Sam Teale reached the milestone of his 250th appearance for The Robins in the recent home encounter with Bideford.
Signed as a left back by Nick Bunyard from Paulton Rovers, he previously played for Clevedon, Mangotsfield and Weston-super-Mare and made his Frome Town debut on 5th September 2015 against Hitchin.
A crisis towards the end of the 2017-18 campaign saw him step up to take the managerial reins for a handful of games and his versatility has also included playing an entire match in goal.
His wholehearted performances along the back line and dedication to the cause, both on and off the pitch, have made him a firm fan favourite and, but for injuries and covid, that impressive appearance total would have been well over the 300 mark.
The only member of the current squad to have played in every one of the past eight seasons, the finest of his 14 career goals must surely be that free kick from inside his own half against Willand last term.
There are not too many players who can be called Frome Town legends, but Sam Teale is certainly one of them.
