Frome Town Youth Colts U14’s 10 Castle Combe 2 Sun Sept 10th
Frome made a very impressive start to their season opener on a big 11 a side pitch at Mells.
The pressure was evident from the start with Harley working hard in the midfield and the wing play and patience by Sam on the right and Josh on the left was brilliant. The pressure though
didn’t count until near the end of the 1st half when the ball was played from the back by Harley into the ever nimble Centre forward Fin. Fin controlled the ball well and played a superb pass to Sam
on the right who had timed his run well. His excellent first time cross was hammered home by Harley who had continued his run.
Then a quick lack of concentration at the back allowed Frome to concede from a Castle Combe corner. It looked to be going in at half time at 1-1 until more pressure from Frome provided a good cut back and an emphatic finish by Jago.
Coaches Wayne and Dave swapped a few things around at half time bringing Max H out of goal to replace centre forward Fin who had looked dangerous, but having ran his socks off, volunteered to go in goal for the 2nd half. Oliver P was pushed up into the midfield where he turned out to have another great mornings work.
The 2nd half started as the 1st half finished with Frome on the attack. It was soon 3-1 with a well taken goal from Harley, who shot from distance. Frome now had their tails up and another quick goal followed by Max C who turned and shot sharply. It was then Zacs turn to get in on the action with a good right foot finish. It was a well deserved goal from Zac who had covered a lot of ground and worked hard. Max C then added another with good box play after a good cross from Max H.
With the game becoming further and further from Castle Combes grasp at 6 - 1 they started to look tired. With Eddie putting in a superb display at the back along with the 2016/17 player of the year Jo and the confident Jed completing a 3 man defence there was seemingly no danger until a quick attack by Castle Combe. This caught the Frome defence napping and the ball eventually coming off of Liam’s foot for an own gaol. It was personally unlucky from Liam who had a superb game bolstering the midfield.
Frome then began to up the tempo with Max H pulling off to the left and created havoc as he stormed through to score his 1st and Frome’s 7th.
With the confidence gone from Castle Combe Sam at last got his goal after Harley crossed for a well taken right footed shot. With coach Wayne not wanting the score to end up humiliating for Castle Combe he took Sam off to finish with ten players. However Max H was intent on getting his name on the score sheet again with a good left footed shot from distance. Frome were then given a penalty with which Fin H unfortunately shot straight down the middle and into the legs of the keeper who cooly cleared the ball. As the minutes ticked down Coach Wayne then took off Harley to finish with 9 men, however, the scoring hadn’t stopped, when another good break from Max H set up his hat trick to complete the score at 10 - 2.
Durrington U14’s 4 Frome Town Youth Colts U14’s 7 Sunday Sept 17th
Frome Town Youth Colts continued their winning start to the season with a 2nd win in a row.
After a long journey and an early start, Frome got out of the traps brightly with the forward three of Sam, Josh and Max H being full of energy. The effort paid off when after only a few minutes Max H netted from close range after constant pressure from Frome. A quick second was followed after Frome stormed the box and a great cross from Harley left Sam with a well taken right footed shot. With a high pressure midfield pushing Frome forward, another cross was headed in by Max C. Durrington then went close with a quick brake, but was covered by the energetic Fin who calmly saw the danger out. A lovely ball by Harley over the top of the defence allowed Max H to sprint on and finish well to make Frome cruise to a 4-0 lead. However, they were not home and dry yet as Frome conceded two sloppy defensive goals, albeit, very well taken by the Durrington forwards.
After a positive half time team talk by coaches Wayne and Dave, Frome pushed on and Max C scored a lovely goal after good work from Jago. Again though, Durrington hit back with another quick goal. The defence of Adam and Jed made sure that Frome tightened up at the back and allowed Max H to score the goal of the game with a delicate chip. More strong work continued with the always energetic Oliver. Another Frome mistake though allowed Durrington in to score again. Then after good work from Eddie, Zac, who had ran his socks off all game finally got his goal with a right footed shot.
Frome then saw the game out well and Tommy performed a fantastic diving save at the end to keep the score at 7 – 4 to Frome.
