Match Reports Season 2010 / 11 Saturday February 19th 2011 Taunton Home Sat 19th Feb 2011 Zamaretto Southern League Div1 (SW) Frome Town 0 Taunton Town 0. Crowd 199 Entertainment Value: 3 Star Man Jamie Cheeseman. Frome Town's recent scoring drought  continued as they were held to a goalless draw by Taunton Town, but they had to play for 60 minutes with only ten men after Dean Evans was shown a red card, and to their credit, looked the side most likely to break the deadlock for much of the second half. With the overnight rain making for a sticky pitch, the match started with Frome unusually kicking towards the Clubhouse end, and they started brightly as Ballinger forced two corners in quick succession, with Cheeseman heading the second over the bar as he rose above everyone. A golden opportunity went begging in the third minute as Lewis did well on the left wing and produced a cross that found Thomson unmarked, but he leant slightly backwards as he headed the ball and it flew harmlessly over the crossbar. With Lewis and Evans both getting half chances within the next few minutes, it seemed as if the drought would break soon, but Taunton rode their luck and it took until the 22nd minute before Lewis had another opportunity that went passed the post after a good Winter cross. In a good natured encounter, both sets of fans were surprised when Frome's Dean Evans was shown a straight red card for a tackle on Phil Veal that was more mistimed than malicious, where normally a yellow card would have been the punishment, but it resulted in Taunton having their first real attack of the match a few minutes later, with Chitty brought into action to parry, then Rice hitting the top of the crossbar from long range a few seconds later. As Frome adjusted to being one man short, they looked the side more likely to score and Ballinger only just failed to get on the end of a Peters through ball in the 43rd minute, but the half time whistle blew with the score even and Frome looking comfortable despite the numerical disadvantage. The second half started with Taunton applying pressure, and Chitty did well in the 50th minute to deal with a high free kick and a low shot shortly afterwards. Taunton again looked dangerous in the 61st minute as Piper broke on the left and produced a cross that led to a shot over the Frome bar, but as the half wore on, Frome started to get more and more of the possession. Perrott did well in the 67th minute to set Ballinger loose, and as the cross came back in, he rose well and produced a header that just cleared the Taunton cross bar. Frome's chance to win the match arrived in the 69th minute as a Brigham throw led to the ball sitting up invitingly in the box for Thomson to shoot home, but he hesitated just long enough to allow a brave block tackle that deflected the ball for a corner. As the corner came in, Perrott produced a shot from the edge of the box that hit the Taunton cross bar, and once again the score line remained untroubled. Darren White replaced the hard working Chris Lewis in the 70th minute, and Frome started to dominate the match with the majority of the play taking place in the Taunton half for the last twenty minutes, but although Ballinger was causing problems on the right wing, the Taunton defence always seemed to be in the right place to clear the ball, and although Cheeseman managed to get the ball in the net in the 88th minute with a low header from a free kick, the goal was disallowed for offside and the match ended all square. Jamie Cheeseman was chosen as Frome's man of the match by vice chairman Terry Woolf who had sponsored the match ball.     Frome Town Taunton Officials George Painter Lee Hawkings Corey Lewis Craig Veal D Bryant J Bishop A Somers Chris Astley Phil Veal Luke Cole Chris McGrath Tim Legg Jon Vance Andy Butler James Blake Alexis Piper Rodney Marsh Darren Rice
