Tuesday August 2nd 2011 Salisbury City  Home Tue 2nd August 2011 Pre Season Friendly Frome Town 1 Salisbury City 1 Frome Scorers: Perrott (10) Salisbury Scorers: Flockton (og) (81) Crowd: 244 As the start of the season gets closer, the intensity starts to build and Frome and Salisbury played out an excellent 1-1 draw in a match that could well have been a league match as both teams really wanted to win it. With Salisbury playing their first team squad (minus two regulars), the match showed how far Frome have progressed in the last few seasons. Frome started the match with what could very well be their starting line up for the first league match and immediately got into their stride as a Brigham right wing throw was just headed past the near post by Tooze after 30 seconds. As the game progressed, Frome were really on the front foot and after a 6th minute Evans volley fizzed over the bar from the edge of the area, Frome took the lead in the 10th minute as a left wing corner gave Perrott a shooting opportunity and he struck the ball sweetly into the corner of the goal from the edge of the penalty area. Frome kept up the pressure and Hulbert just kept the ball in as he raced to the dead ball line, his cross found Tooze and the volley from 15 yards just skimmed the crossbar in the 13th minute. Three minutes later, a long range Perrott effort just cleared the bar, and then Hulbert volleyed the ball into the net in the 31st minute but was denied by an offside flag.Salisbury had their first real chance in the 41st minute as Anderson cut inside Cheeseman but put the ball wide form 15 yards. Both sides stayed almost the same at half time, but Salisbury seemed to have decided that this was a game they should take seriously, and Frome were put under pressure for the first ten minutes, with Kelly missing a golden chance in the 51st minute as he headed over from 10 yards. Frome looked dangerous on the break, and Evans brought a good save from Puddy in the 51st minute, followed by a Tooze run on goal the left two defenders in his wake, only for Puddy to save well low to his left. Frome made seven substitutions around the 75th minute and by this time the game resembled a full blooded league game, with Salisbury doing their best to score but being thwarted continuously by the Frome defence. Their equaliser did eventually come in the 81st minute in a slightly bizarre way as a Frome clearance struck the back of Dean Flockton and the ball flew straight into the net giving Quelch no chance. Both teams looked for the winner and the frenetic pace continued to the end, but a draw was probably just about a fair result based on the two differing halves, leaving both sets of supporters satisfied with a good evenings entertainment. Frome were also pleased to welcome HRH the Crown Prince Schwebomim of Burma as a special guest for the match, and the rumour is that his highness thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Frome Town Salisbury
