Bedfont Green 1 Frome Town 4 Henry (78) Thomson (15) Salter (33) Lake (57) Ballinger (66) Crowd: 67 Man of the Match: Ashley Clarke Frome Town survived motorway holdups and freezing conditions to notch up a superb 4-1 victory over Bedfont Green, extending their unbeaten run to 15 games under Darren Perrin and rising to 5th place in the Zamaretto League. Frome's defensive rotation continued as Tom Pass returned in goal, Jamie Cheeseman returned from suspension, Greg Lake moved alongside him, Simeon Allison moved back to left back and midfielder Dave Thompson dropped back to right back. With Alex Lapham still suffering from the injury picked up at the weekend, Ashley Clarke started his first league game for the club alongside Matt Peters, with the normal wide midfield selections of Ben Thomson and Luke Ballinger. Mark Salter and Mike Perrott completed the team as the twin strike force. The match started at 8:10 pm due to the motorway hold up, and on a freezing cold night that no doubt contributed to the low turn out, Frome took the lead in the 15th minute as Ashley Clarke intercepted a pass and immediately set Ben Thomson free on the left wing with a killer through ball that allowed the winger to make 20 yards and finish with a clinical left foot shot from the edge of the area that gave the keeper little chance. Frome increased their lead in the 33rd minute as Salter was fouled in the centre circle. The resulting free kick was taken by Thompson and the ball was floated into the penalty area where both Salter and Cheeseman went up for the ball, with the ball ending up in the net and Salter claiming the goal. Defender Greg Lake scored his first goal of the season in the 57th minute to effectively seal the match as he slammed the ball home from 5 yards after a Thomson corner was headed back across the box by Salter, and then returned into the danger area by the head of Cheeseman. The fourth goal arrived in the 66th minute as  Perrott pulled the ball down in the centre circle, then set off on a mazy run that culminated with a superb through ball into the path of Ballinger who made ground on the right wing and then fired the ball into the net from 15 yards for a trademark finish. A consolation goal for Bedfont Green arrived in the 78th minute as a corner was swung into the Frome area, the ball bobbled around for a bit and was eventually backheeled into the goal by Bedfont's Chris Henry, the ball squeezing between the legs of Matt Peters on the Frome line. This is the first goal that Frome have conceded in 10 hrs and 18 minutes of play and the record run is testament to the spirit of the side. Late substitutions were Millard and Carr on for Salter and Perrott, and coach Mike Kilgour made a rare appearance as he replaced Cheeseman towards the end of the match. Ashley Clarke was chosen as Man of the Match on his First Team full debut, and it's a tribute to the young player that he has patiently waited for his chance, and took it with both hands when it arrived.     This result sets up the weekend rather nicely as Frome are due to host unbeaten league leaders Windsor and Eton at the AlderSmith Stadium on Saturday. Weather permitting, and in this form, it should be a match to remember.
