After three successive league defeats it was always going to be hard for Frome to get anything out of this match with Chesham riding high at the top of the table and having three of the top twelve goalscorers in the league in their side. The odds against Frome gaining their first home victory of the season were always going to be pretty high. After a slow start to the match which had seen both teams trying to master the windy conditions, , the match erupted into life in the 15th minute as Chesham carved through the Frome defence allowing James Potton to cut in from the right and shoot low into the far corner. Three minutes later there seemed to be no immediate danger, but Potton could see an opportunity and  produced a stunning dipping volley from outside the area that Darren Chitty got a hand to, but was unable to stop the ball dipping into the net. Steve Wales scored the third a minute later with a calm finish to a flowing move that left him with time and space, and it threatened to become a rout shortly after Josh Ford lost possession on the edge of the Frome are, Matt Cowler fouled trying to retrieve the situation and the referee immediately pointed to the penalty spot. Steve Wales took the kick, but Darren Chitty threw himself to his right, pushed the ball out and was quick enough to get a second save in as Chesham rushed in for the rebound. Chitty again produced a great save to deny Drew Roberts in the 31st minute, and after Frome made a tactical substitution replacing Matt Clark with Ryan Elliott allowing Rhys Baggridge to move into the right midfield, the situation was stabilised, and just before half time, they pulled one back as Matt Smith won the ball and set Ben Wood free to score a fine individual goal as he outpaced three defenders and shot past Shane Gore to make it 3-1 at half time. Frome were much, much better after half time and started playing with pace, movement and intelligence, keeping the ball on the floor and taking the match to Chesham. Wood brought a save from Gore in the 50th and was involved in a fine move in the 58th minute that brought a save from Gore and Baggridge so nearly slid the ball into the net at the far post. Tim Stephenson headed a corner wide of the Chesham post in the 65th and with Chesham looking ragged, if Frome could have made it 3-2 it would have produced an interesting end to the match, but as Frome went for broke, Chesham scored a breakaway goal in the 79th minute as a Jack Metcalf clearance was charged down and the league’s top scorer Drew Roberts raced after it and shot cleanly home past Chitty. That goal took the fight out of Frome’s comeback and Chesham then looked capable of scoring again, and they very nearly did in the last minute as Inih Effiong headed a cross clean over the bar from 6 yards out. Frome goalkeeper Darren Chitty  was awarded the “H&B Tyres Man of the Man Award” by representatives of K&S Commercial Components who had sponsored the match ball .
