Wednesday February 29th  2012 Weston-S-Mare Home Wednesday February 29th 2012 SPC Quarter Finals Frome Town 0  Weston Super Mare 2 Frome Scorers: None. Weston Scorers: Diallo (5), Young 15 Crowd: 176 Entertainment Value: 3 Star Man: Tom Evans A re-shuffled Frome side conceded two early goals to a very good Weston side, and though the second half was a more even affair, Weston were never in any trouble and were well worth their win on the night. With Weston sat in a good 8th place in the Blue Square South Division, it was always going to be a stern test for Frome if they sent a strong squad, and on the night their  starting line up was exactly the one that had started their last league match showing that they had come for the win.  Frome’s side was re-shuffled, with four regulars starting on the bench and Dean Flockton not available. On a still night with a firm pitch, Weston started impressively and Frome were on the back foot from the start, and the opening goal of the night came in the 5th minute as winger Nabi Diallo cut in from the right, evaded 3 or 4 desperate tackles and coolly slotted the ball home under Darren Chitty’s body. Weston made it 2-0 after 15 minutes as a quick move led to a shot from Nat Pepperal that Chitty did well to save, but he was powerless to prevent Chris Young from scoring from close range. At this point, Weston looked as if they could score at will, and they went close in the 17th minute as they broke quickly from defence, and only a stunning save from Chitty denied Young his second of the night as he just managed to tip the ball over the bar. At half time with score 2-0, it seemed that the match was just a question of how many Weston would score, and the started the second half in the driving seat as Young carved his way through the home defence and then blasted the ball over the bar. Frome’s first “on target” shot of the night came on 60 minutes as Luke Ballinger  cut inside and hit a left foot shot that Irish dealt with easily, but Weston were always in charge and only two clearances off the line by Frome defenders and sterling work by Chitty denied the visitors any more goals. As the match moved towards the end, it turned into a much more even affair, with Frome having more possession and mounting several promising attacks, but the final ball always lacked the quality needed, and  Weston always looked comfortable and like they move up a couple of gears whenever they felt like it. Tom Evans was chosen as man of the match by representatives of H&B Tyres who had sponsored the match.     Frome Town Weston S Mare Lloyd Irish Jamie Price Martyn Slocombe Jamie Laird Matt Villis Ben Cleverley Nabi Diallo Ben Kirk Chris Young Brett Trowbridge Nat Pepperal Marcus Duharty Marc McGregor Kane Ingram Dayle Grubb Sahr Kabba Officials R: M Veater A: A Fricker A: K Williams Match Photos Photos of this match taken by our expert photographer Chas Hadfield can be viewed by clicking on this rectangle Match Sponsor H&B Tyres Ball Sponsor H& B Tyres
