Womens: Bishops Lydeard 4-0 Frome (semi-final)

Frome Town women headed to Taunton to take on Bishops Lydeard ladies in the semi final of the Somerset junior cup.

Travelling with a depleted squad due to injuries and prior engagements the bare eleven competed well in a goalless 1st half despite a stiff breeze in their faces and going down to 10 players after an unfortunate ankle injury to centre half Perkins.

The 2nd half got off to a sluggish start for Frome as the Lydeard ladies pushed hard for an opener and Frome got punished with 55mins on the watch with a good header at the back post following a cross from a corner. Lydeard continued to take advantage making good use of the extra player and doubled their lead on 65 mins with a well worked goal.

To Frome’s credit the whole team battled across the pitch but couldn’t quite get a breakthrough to seriously test the home keeper apart from a looping shot that grazed the bar, from McGregor. Late on with 5 mins to play and Frome running out of energy the Lydeard midfield and two front player’s linked well to hit 2 more past Frome to leave the final score 4-0.

Not the result Frome wanted and the final score a little harsh to be fair but Frome came up against a good Lydeard team and wish them well in the final.

With a decent work rate from the whole team the player of the match was presented to Christmas for her closing down of the Lydeard back 4 while playing in the lone striker role.

No game next week but a home league tie against table toppers Sherborne town ladies on March 8th.
