Frome Town Youth
Match report: Frome Town Youth U12 0 – 7 Warminster Highbury U12 Reds
The U12 Reds had a break from the league campaign on Sunday with their first cup tie of the season away to Frome Town Youth.
After a bit of a slow start with not enough movement across the pitch, the Reds got more into the swing of the game and ratcheted up the pressure on the determined home team. The play was a bit scrappy at times but the visitors pushed forward and started to create some good opportunit…ies.
The first goal came from Ben Lilley, who headed in a superb cross from Riley Millington to make it 0-1 in the 8th minute. Riley then scored himself to make it 0-2 to the Reds. Further first half goals came from Ethan Pennington with a superb long distance effort (0-3) and Braden Humphreys with a tidy chip over the goalie (0-4). Caleb Nash then powered one in and a goal from winger Jack Doble settled the score line at 0-6 to the Reds at half time.
Unfortunately, the second half performance was much lower tempo and a bit laboured with the lads overplaying the ball and struggling to break through the Frome defence. For most of the half we didn’t look like scoring, although a powerful and low shot from Toby Ruck on the right wing found the back of the net and gave us the final score of 0-7 just before the full-time whistle.
Although this was a convincing win, the second half performance was disappointing and hopefully the lads will be back on top form for their next league game, away to Larkhall on Sunday.
