Willand Rovers vs. Frome Town: Preview and Ticket Info

Steve Jupp, BA11's Club Historian, previews another demanding fixture on the road.


Frustrated by Wednesday's washout at Larkhall,  the Robins will be keen for some Saturday action when they travel to Willand Rovers. 


The Devon outfit were league leaders when they visited Badgers Hill back in November but not after Warren Maidment's early double followed by a second half strike from Sam Meakes fired Frome to a comfortable 3-0 victory. 



Top spot switched hands yet again following Wimborne's 2-1 midweek win against Melksham leaving Frome and Cribbs hot on their heels, both with a game in hand. 


                                Pld      Pts     GD

1   Wimborne        26       54      +25

2   FROME              25       52      +22

3   Cribbs               25       50      +14


On the same night as the Larkhall postponement, Willand ended a run of five games without a win with a 3-1 triumph at Tavistock which lifted them up to tenth place. 


They boast the best home record in Division One South outside of the top three, losing just one of their twelve Silver Street encounters this season and it is a venue where the Robins have struggled to grind out results in recent years. 


Their last visit, almost exactly twelve months ago, ended all-square at 2-2 when Pierce Mitchell's opportunist effort in stoppage time saved the day.


Winless on their two previous trips to Devon this current campaign (Plymouth Parkway 2-2 and Tavistock 2-6), fans will be hoping this will be third time lucky.

An appreciation of Sam Teale and Jonno Davies:


Captain Teal.

There are few defenders in our league who can match Sam's composure on the ball, it is rare to see a defender who is so comfortable orchestrating the team play from defensive positions.


Sam is unflappable with the ball at his feet and always seems to have time to pick out one of his colleagues.


Some of Sam's defensive duties can easily be overlooked because he is so good at reading where the ball is going. He regularly intercepts an indended pass, before setting the team away again.

Defensively he offers a calm and commanding aerial presence. Sam is also a real threat in the opposition penalty area, the clever…
