Match Reports Season 2010 / 11 Saturday October 16th 2010 Evesham United Away Saturday 16th October 2010 FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round Evesham 1 Frome Town 0 Frome Scorers: None Evesham Scorers: Shaze (45+2) Entertainment Value: 4 Star Man: Ben Thomson Frome Town narrowly lost 1-0 to Zamaretto Premier side Evesham United in a keenly contested "battle of the robins", after doing enough to win a replay but eventually missed chances cost them dear. After a good away win in the league last week, Frome again travelled north on the M5, this time taking on Zamaretto Premier League side Evesham United who are currently playing at Worcester City's ground while their new ground nears completion.  The match started evenly with Evesham looking quick going forward but causing the Frome defence no real problems. Frome's Evans was booked early on for a tackle that caused Evesham's centre forward Roland Agbor to retire through injury, being replaced by Will Gayton The 18th minute saw Frome's Thomson make a good run down the left wing but his cross just eluded Etheridge with the home keeper Vaughan just getting to the ball first. Two minutes later and Thomson again cut in from the left, this time the cross finding Perrott who managed to win a corner with a dangerous ball into the box. Lapham's corner kick caused problems and Cheeseman hooked the ball goalwards with a defender just managing to head out for another corner with Thomson lurking. The third corner in quick succession saw Cheeseman wins the ball and set up Perrott for an overhead kick that was claimed by Vaughan. The 32nd minute saw Perrott win the ball well but his 30 yard shot just cleared the bar. A minute later and a great chance went begging as Thomson robbed the Evesham right back, stormed forward and pulled the ball back to Perrott but his shot was sliced onto a defender for a corner. Evesham now started to come back into the match, and the 35th minute saw Brown shoot over Frome bar as he turned quickly on the edge of the area. One minute later and Frome were again fortunate as Evesham's Shaze rattled the Frome post with a fierce drive from 20 yards. The last kick of the first half saw the home side take the lead as poor defending gave Shaze a shooting opportunity and he drove the ball cleanly home with the last kick of the first half. Frome started the second half brightly as a Brigham long throw found Etheridge who controlled the ball and laid it off to Lapham to shoot over the bar from 25 yards. In the 60th minute,Frome were pleased to see a fierce free kick from Risbett just skim the cross bar, but Frome struck back and a minute later Perrott's fierce drive was just tipped behind for a corner. Frome's Thomson was becoming a major danger to the home side whenever he received the ball and ran at the defence. The 78th minute saw Evesham go close as  Brigham misjudged the pace of the ball (thinking the ball is going out of play) and allowed Shaze to cut inside past the Frome defence, but he blazes the ball high over the bar from 15 yards out With Frome throwing everything into the hunt for an equaliser, the 84th minute saw another excellent chance as Etheridge won the ball and played it out to Brigham who provided a pinpoint cross but Perrott headed the ball straight at Vaughan. The 88th minute saw a Thomson free kick from right wing find Lapham, but his low shot through a crowd of legs was saved on the line by Vaughan, and one minute later, a  Lapham free kick was not dealt with by the home defence, the ball found its way to the unmarked Etheridge who volleyed the ball over the bar from 10 yards out. With the final whistle sounding soon afterwards, Frome were left to look back on a match in which they acquitted themselves well, but just couldn't find the net. Frome's Ben Thomson was chosen as man of the match for an excellent performance on the left wing.
