Chippenham Town Blue u11’s 0 – 3 Frome Town FC u11’s
Zonkey sponsored Frome travelled to Stanley Park for their league game against Chippenham on Saturday. Fortunately the rain held off and provided a perfect morning for football.
Frome kicked off and immediately went on the attack, creating their first clear cut chance in the opening 60 seconds when the tenacious Sol work the ball to the touch line and crossed, but Fin on the back post failed to get the touch needed to convert.
Undeterred Frome kept up the pressure, and a similar attack saw the first goal, as Sol once again drove into the box and crossed – this time Fin made no mistake, turning the ball in to the net at the far post. 1-0 Frome.
Chippenham defended resolutely as Frome pressed on, and the Chippenham keeper produced a fine display to keep it to 1-0 at the interval.
The second half started as the first had finished, with Frome looking to add to their lead, and the Chippenham keeper making several fine saves.
5 minutes into the second period the ball fell to Charlie on the edge of the Chippenham box, the Frome midfielder controlling it, giving himself a yard of space and firing an 18 yard rocket into the roof of the Chippenham net, 2-0 and what a strike!
Just two minutes later Charlie repeated this feat, this time from a full 20 yards, with a dipping shot that the Chippenham keeper could do nothing about.
With the score at 3-0 Frome shuffled the pack and comfortably saw the game out, with Cole, Morgan, Oli and Joe snuffing out any late Chippenham attacks, and Josh alert and quick off his line to collect any through balls.
A great game of football, with both sides a credit to their clubs and the game.
Frome Man of the Match: Charlie, for taking hold of the game and two fantastic strikes to secure the points.
