Frome Town 4 Bracknell Town 0 Hulbert (3) & (30) Bradley (OG) (29) Salter (48) Crowd:234 Man of the Match: Ricky Hulbert Frome Town comfortably extended their unbeaten league run to eighteen matches as they easily defeated bottom side Bracknell Town with a 4-0 scoreline that could well have been much bigger. Manager Darren Perrin started the match with a familiar line up, the only real change from normal being that Mike Perrott started the match in midfield rather than as a forward, and Tom Pass continued in goal in place of Dafyyd Jones who is just returning from a back injury. The pitch survived the overnight frost due to the higher February sun angle that meant that it had been bathed in sunshine for most the day and it palyed without problem for the entire match. A good crowd of 234 were expecting a good result, and they only had three minutes to wait as a Frome header over the Bracknell defence found Hulbert in space and the striker made ten yards and finished well as he lobbed the advancing Bradley from 25 yards, with the ball going into the net off the underside of the cross bar. The match soon settled into a pattern that was to last the full ninety minutes, with probing Frome attacks that the Bracknell defence were struggling to deal with. After going close several times, a Perrott header in the 20th minute set up Allison, but the shot whistled over the bar from 15 yards. Cheeseman started to bring the ball out of defence and joining the strikers when the occasion arose, and his height caused problems in the box twice in the space of a few minutes, but Bracknell just managed to deal with the threat. The second goal for Frome came in bizarre fashion in the 29th minute as Ballinger hit a low, flat right wing corner in towards the Bracknell near post. The defender on the post seemed to duck under the ball, meaning that the visiting keeper Bradley had to dive back towards his own line to get the ball, but his momentum seemed to take the ball over the line and it ended up loose in the corner of the net. The general consensus was that it was an own goal, but that may have been a little unfair on Ballinger, as there was only a few inches in the call. Frome effectively sealed the match one minute later as Hulbert comprehensively beat the offside trap to run into acres of space, made ground and finished clinically from the edge of the box with a very well taken shot. Bracknell won their first corner in the 35th minute and the Frome keeper Tom Pass was called into action to save his first shot of the match in the 40th minute which gives some idea of the domintaion that Frome had achieved in the first half. Hulbert could have increased the scoreline in the 40th minute as he broke clear again, but this time Bradley saved bravely and well at his feet. At half time, Dave Thompson replaced Matt Peters, and three minutes into the second half, he produced a sublime chip that found Mark Salter on the penalty spot, and the striker calmly produced a diving header over Bradley into the far corner to increase the scoreline to 4-0. The large home crowd began to really get behind the team now, and the match turned into a procession of Frome attacks and desperate Bracknell defending. The 58th minute saw a Ballinger free kick flicked on by the head of Perrott, with the ball striking the base of the far post and re-bounding to safety, and in the 64th minute, he repeated the feat, this time getting his head to an Allison cross and finding the base of the other far post. Hulbert shot wide from an unmarked position in the 65th minute, and Ballinger repeated the feat two minutes later. The 73rd minute saw Ballinger create mayhem on the right wing, with his low, driven cross eventually arriving at Allison who brought a good save from Bradley. A sublime ball from Clarke set Allison free on the left wing in the 75th minute, he cut inside, tempted the full back and then slipped the ball to Thomson who shot over the bar from 18 yards.  Salter went close in the 82nd minute, and even closer three minutes later as he broke clean through the defence only for Bradley to save well at his feet. After all the chances, Bracknell decided to defend the last ten minutes with a higher line, and the Frome forwards now found themselves being caught offside more, but Salter had another good chance in the 84th minute as a diving header just flew over the bar. Surprisingly, the last couple of minutes saw Tom Pass making two saves in the home goal as Bracknell threw averything forward looking for a consolation goal, but it wasn't to be, and Frome ended the game comfortable winners. Ricky Hulbert was presented with the Man of the Match award by Chairman Jeremy Alderman who sponsored the match.
