Frome Town 0 Yate Town 0 Crowd: 192 Man of the Match: Matt Peters Frome Town and Yate Town eventually shared the points in a 0-0 draw that never really came to life, extending Frome’s unbeaten league run to eleven games and producing their third clean sheet in the space of seven days. With injuries and wedding commitments causing the loss of  Callum Henry, Iain Carr, Joe Gomes, Alex Lapham and Matt Minnis, manager Darren Perrin started the match with Matt Peters moved to centre of midfield alongside new signing Jordan Metters, with the wide midfield, forwards and defence showing the settled formations that have performed so well over the past few matches. On a cold, grey, November day with almost no wind, and on a softish pitch that had recovered remarkably well from the standing water of the previous day,the match started Frome were first to show as, in the 5th minute, Cheeseman rose to meet a left wing corner, the ball falling to top scorer Ballinger who shot over the bar from 25 yards. Frome were a little lucky in the 11th minute as a long Yate goal kick dropped invitingly for Simpson, but the winger failed to get any force on the shot, and Jones saved easily after anticipating the ball coming to him a little quicker, and diving early. Frome came back with Ballinger in the 13th minute as a right foot shot fizzed past the post from 25 yards, and the home crowd held their breath in the 13th minute as Cheeseman wrapped an arm round Adams as the striker chased another long through ball, but the referee only brandished a yellow card. Jones did well to punch the ball clear from the resulting free kick. As the half wore on, the match was struggling to really get going, with both defences in charge, and chances few and far between. Reaney picked up an injury in the 32nd minute, and was replaced by Dave Thompson, with Peters moving to right back. Cheeseman just failed to get his head to a left wing free kick in the 33rd minute, and Yate broke quickly causing Jones to come well out of his area to head the ball clear when danger threatened. At half time, the crowd looked forward to the second half with Frome attacking their favoured Clubhouse end, hoping for the breakthrough that would lift the game and get it moving, however, Yate started the quickest and Jones had to be very alert to deal with a wickedly swerving 20 yard volley from Vahid after a defensive mistake. Frome began to settle to their task, and the 53rd minute saw Salter pull a cross back from the dead ball line, only for Hulbert to get his head to the ball but direct it back in the same direction.  Yate looked dangerous in the 62nd minute as a low, fast left wing cross to the near post saw Lake do extremely well to flick the ball past the far post as he slid in to retrieve the situation. On 65 minutes, Ashley Clarke and Sim Allison (returning from injury) replaced Ricky Hulbert and Jordan Metters, and this seemed to lift the team as Allison’s pace and Clarke’s passing range contributed to Frome’s best spell of the match. As the tempo increased, the home crowd started to get behind the team, and Salter went close in the 67th minute as he poked the ball just over the bar in a crowded penalty area. The 71st minute saw the chance of the match as a Frome right wing corner led to a Ballinger 20 yard that thumped against the Yate bar and bounced straight down onto Cheeseman’s knee, the ball cannoning off him, straight into the arms of Dempsey in the visitor’s goal for what could be described as a fortunate let off for Yate. However, Frome’s purple patch faded a little, Yate came more and more back into the game and the last ten minutes of the match saw Yate spending a lot of time in the Frome half, with only sporadic Frome raids to warm the crowd. Heavy rain started falling with four minutes to go, and, maybe with this in mind, the referee blew the final whistle with exactly two seconds of injury time added, which is probably a record at the AlderSmith Stadium. After three tough matches in a week, three clean sheets in a week, eleven league matches unbeaten, the team were applauded off the pitch by the home supporters at the end of the match. Matt Peters was chosen as Man of the Match and was presented with the award by Gary Collinson on behalf of MJC Properties who sponsored the match.   Frome Town Players Dafyyd Jones Mike Reaney (32) Greg Lake Craig Fullam Jamie Cheeseman Matt Peters Jordan Metters (65) Luke Ballinger Mark Salter Ricky Hulbert (65) Ben Thomson Sim Allison (65) D Thompson (32) Simon Millard Ashley Clarke (65) Mike Kilgour  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10 11 12 14 15 16 17 Yate Town  Players Josh Dempsey Tim Warren Callum Stewart Marc Hughes Scott Thomas Jon McAlinden Liam Fussell Eda Vahid Mark Reynolds Adie Adams Zayne Simpson Sam Duggan Jason Burt Aaran Robins Adam White Stuart Nelson  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9 10 11 12 14 15 16 17 Frome Town Management Darren Perrin Derek Graham Mike Clarke Shaun Baker Mike Kilgour   M A P K C Match Officials C Miller S Berner J Haywood   R A A Zamaretto League Match Reports Abingdon (H) AFC Totton (A) Mangotsfield Utd (A) Thatcham Town (H) VTFC (A) North Leigh (H) Andover (A) Bracknell (A) AFC Hayes (H) Bridgwater (A) Cirencester (H) Andover (H) Bishops Cleeve (H) Windsor & Eton (A) Uxbridge (A) Yate Town (H) Hungerford Town (A) Cinderford Town (H) Gosport Borough (A) Bedfont Green (A) Paulton Rovers (H) AFC Hayes (A) Bracknell Town (H) Uxbridge (H) Cirencester (A) Taunton Town (A) Bridgwater (H) Windsor&Eton (H) Abingdon (A) AFC Totton (H) North Leigh (A) Thatcham Town (A) VTFC (H) Mangotsfield (H) Bedfont Green (H) Bishops Cleeve (A) Paulton Rovers (A) Cinderford (A) Hungerford Town (H) Taunton Town (H) Yate Town (A) Gosport Borough (H) FA Cup  Hamworthy (A) FA Trophy Chippenham (A) Red Insure Cup Clevedon Town (A) Som Prem Cup Weston s Mare (H) Bridgwater (H) Mark Salter on the ball against Yate Town Mascot Jesse Sherrard with the Captains and Match officials Gary Collinson presents Matt Peters with the Man of the Match award on behalf of MJC Properties who sponsored the game.
