Hamworthy Utd 3 Frome Town 2 Crow (1) Piotrowski (20) Swann (28) & (40) Fullam (79) Crowd: 117 Man of the Match: Tom Piotrowski Frome Town's poor run of form continued with their fourth defeat in a row as they crashed out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle, losing 3-2 at Hamworthy Utd. The match started in the worst possible way for Frome as went behind after 38 seconds, as a Hamworthy attack resulted in the ball finding its way out to right back Max Crow on the right wing, and his speculative 30 yard shot stayed on the ground, went through everyone, deceived Payne, struck the inside of the base of the far post and rebounded into the back of the net. Hamworthy almost repeated the goal two minutes later as a 40 yard free kick again evaded everyone, and Payne just manged to get down late to push the ball round the post for a corner. Frome then re-grouped, and a Piotrowski glanced header in the 14th minute was just tipped over the bar by Shergold in the home goal. Frome drew level in the 20th minute with another bizarre goal. A high lob from Lake on the left wing drew Shergold out of his area to head the ball clear, but he only succeeded in heading the ball backwards towards his own goal and Piotrowski was left with the easiest of tap-ins to make the score 1-1. Frome looked a little more settled now, but it didn't last long, and as the defence failed to properly clear the ball after a free kick, it fell to Hamworthy's Swann who drilled the ball home well from an unmarked position on the left hand side of the Frome area. Frome tried to make something of the first half, but there seemed to be no real penetration, and in the 40th minute, Shergold miskicked as he again came out of his area, but this time a Hamworthy defender was there to clear, the ball was worked quickly upfield and the unmarked Swann again found space on the left wing, causing Payne to leave his goal line, only to be left stranded by a superb 30 yard lob that sailed over the keeper and landed in the back of the net to give Hamworthy a 3-1 lead at half time. With the breeze and the slght slope in their favour, Frome started better in the second half, but they always looked susceptible to Hamworthy counter attacks, and the first 15 minutes produced end to end football, with both defences struggling to cope. Frome really should have reduced the arrears  in the 62nd minute as a perfect Lake left wing cross found Cheeseman on the far post, and his cushioned header fell perfectly for the unmarked Whittington, but he managed to sweep the ball wide from 6 yards when it seemed easier to score. A Frome free kick on the edge of the area was deflected just past the post for a corner in the 65th minute, and in the 68th minute Allison did well to produce a cross to Fullam, with the header landing on top of the Hamworthy bar. One minute later, and substitute Harvey produced a chipped cross onto Cheeseman's head, only for Shergold to save well at the near post. It seemed like the Hamworthy goal had a charmed life, but Frome reduced the arrears in the 70th minute as a Lapham left wing corner came back out to him, and the second attempt was drilled hard back into the box where Fullam managed to prod the ball home. Piotrowski did well in the 75th minute to burst into the area and pull the ball back, but Gomes' shot was blocked by a defender, and Hunt beat Shergold to a high ball in the 82nd minute, but the header over the keeper was short on speed and the ball was cleared by a defender. Frome's last chance came in the 90th minute as a Fullam header went high over the bar, and with almost no injury time played, Hamworthy rightly clebrated at the final whistle. Frome's poor first half had left too much to recover in the second half. Tom Piotrowski was awarded the Man of the Match award for a hard working match where he never stopped trying to make things happen.
