Saturday August 27th 2011 Cambridge City Away Saturday 27th August  2011 Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Cambridge City  2  Frome Town 3 Frome Scorers:  Smith (16), Miller (43), Tooze (75) Cambridge Scorers: Burke (45+3,p), Hammond (74) Entertainment Value: 5 Star Man: Matt Smith Frome Town made the longest journey of their season to Cambridge, rotated their squad with a view to Monday’s local derby, and  came away with a famous 3-2 victory from one of the pre-season title favourites.. Frome were quick to start the match, and in the 2nd minute, Twain Plummer tracked back to make a good tackle and then set Kris Miller free on the left. The winger cut inside his marker but then shot wide of the near post. Darren Chitty held onto a 35 yard screamer in the 9th minute, but then Frome took the lead in the 16th minute as a Miller corner was cleanly headed home by the unmarked Matt Smith. Four minutes later and Smith was desperately hacking the ball clear off his own line as Cambridge pressure led to a great save by Chitty from Robbie Nightingale, but the rebound created mayhem on the Frome line and only the combined efforts of two defenders prevented the ball from going in the net. The 23rd minute saw a 30 yard drive from Adam Cambridge just clear the Frome bar, and three minutes later Frome were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty as Plummer was clattered from behind by Zac Bartlett after he had beaten the home keeper to the ball. The ball ran clear to Matt Smith, but his shot from 25 yards went wide. The 30th minute saw Jamie Cheeseman just manage to get to Danny Kelly as the Cambridge striker shot wide, and then a quick Cambridge move two minutes later saw Liam Nicell get to the dead ball line and cross the ball over the head of Chitty, but Mike Reaney was on hand to head the ball off of his own goal line. The 35th minute almost saw a carbon copy goal for Frome, as a Miller corner was again met by the head of Smith, but this time Bartlett saved the header. A Shaun Benison goalbound effort from the edge of the area was just tipped behind in the 38th minute, but then  Miller gave Frome a 2-0 lead in the 43rd minute as he was credited with scoring direct from another corner played in towards  the Cambridge near post. Cambridge reduced the arrears just before half time as Tony Burke converted from the spot after a push in the Frome area, making the half time score 2-1 to Frome. Chances were harder to come by in the second half, and Cambridge substitute Craig Hammond should have done better with a close range header in the 65th minute, but then Cambridge equalised in the 74th minute as a right wing cross was not cleared and  Hammond drove the ball home from  5 yards. Frome regained the lead with the goal of the match direct from the restart. The ball was played out to Kyle Tooze on the right wing, who then went on a mazy run, beat three defenders, cut inside and unleashed an unstoppable shot from the edge of the area that went low into the far corner of the net. With fifteen minutes to go, the match could have gone any way, but both defences seemed to get on top ,and with very little incident after the goal, Frome were left to celebrate an excellent away victory that nicely sets up the much anticipated local derby with Chippenham on Monday. Matt Smith was chosen as Man of the Match after another inspirational game in mdifield.
