Match Reports Season 2010 / 11 Saturday September 25th 2010 Havant & Waterlooville Away Saturday 25th September 2010 FA Cup Second Qualifying Round Havant and Waterlooville 1 Frome Town 0 Frome Scorers: None Havant Scorers: Williams (64) Entertainment Value: 4 Star Man: Darren Chitty Crowd: 448 Frome Town produced a battling performance at Conference South side Havant and Waterlooville, but eventually bowed out of the FA Cup to a 64th minute winner by Williams. Against a side that bristled with Football League experience, it was always going to be a tough task for Frome to come away from Havant with a result, but the FA Cup is a great leveller, and the conversations before the match hoped that a replay would be the end result, and it wasn't too far from the truth as the match was to prove. Frome survived an early blitz from Havant in the first few minutes that ended with a 25 yard screamer over the bar from Hopkinson, but then they settled to their task well and although Havant tended to have more territory and possession, Frome looked comfortable defending and dangerous on the break. The 10th minute saw a long throw from Lake find its way to Perrott, who then cut in from the right and produced a cross that allowed Thomson to find a glanced header that brought the first save of the game from Howe.  Thomson was again involved in the 28th minute as he again managed to get a header on target, this time courtesy of an excellent Lapham free kick, but again Howe was able to deal comfortably with the threat. As the whistle blew for half time, the travelling fans were beginning to believe that a replay or even a narrow win might be on the cards, as Chitty in the Frome goal had comfortably dealt with everything thrown at him, but had not really been tested in the entire 45 minutes, and at the other end, Frome had probably carved out more attempts on goal. However, it wasn't to be, and Havant started the second half playing down the slight slope with a great deal more urgency. Chitty produced an excellent low save from 15 yards in the 48th minute, and again had to be alert to stop another low shot from a Havant corner three minutes later. Frome had their moments though, and Etheridge did well to break through and bring a save from Howe with a deflected shot in the 54th minute, and a long Brigham throw ended with a glanced header from Perrott that again produced a save. An excellent Frome break on the left involving Evans and Thomson saw the latter cut into the area and pull the ball back invitingly, but a defender was first to the ball, and as Havant immediately broke back, Chitty was again called on to make another low save. Havant now seemed to find their best spell of the match, and the next few minutes saw them camped in the Frome half, winning several corners and the only goal of the game came as Tiryaki played a ball from a corner back into the box and Williams lashed the ball home from 12 yards with a shot high into the roof of the net. Havant now seemed to move up a gear and Frome were finding it difficult to hang onto the ball when they won it, and difficult to win the ball in the first place. In the 76th minute, Darren Perrin decided to go on the attack and replaced Max Etheridge and Matt Peters with Tom Piotrowski and Sim Allison, and with seconds of coming on Allison combined with Cheeseman and found himself with a shooting chance 15 yards from goal, but he hesitated and passed the ball when a blasted low shot might just have found the net and the chance went. Chitty produced the save of the match in the 79th minute as he arched backwards to tip over a 20 yard screamer from Hopkinson, and again did well a minute later to save a header from the resulting corner. Frome's last chance of the match fell to Piotrowski in the 81st minute as he brought a save from Howe at the near post, Cheeseman produced an overhead kick from the resulting corner that cleared the bar, but Havant then comfortably controlled possession for the last ten minutes and there was no barnstorming end to the match. So, an excellent effort from Frome against a much more experienced side, but at the end of the day, the Hawks just proved a little to strong for the Robins. Goalkeeper Darren Chitty was chosen as Frome's Man of the Match for a string of outstanding saves that kept the match a close run thing in the second half.
