Luke and Josh hit a hat-trick apiece as Frome Town under-10s hit Dilton Rovers for six at the weekend.

Frome started well, with Jordan and Josh combining effectively in midfield. The first chance of the game fell to Lewis but the keeper did well to block the shot.

Dilton almost scored but Lucas made a good save after a goalmouth scramble.

Frome created a number of chances, with Magor's shot well saved and Jordan seeing his effort cleared off the line.

The home team eventually took a deserved lead when Finn broke through and fed the ball to Josh, who nudged it home.

Frome continued to create chances but the Dilton keeper made crucial saves from Josh and Luke before the latter made space down the right and crossed to give Josh a simple tap-in.

Dilton came back into the game when a free-kick for handball was hammered home by Lewis but Frome continued to battle in midfield, with Alfie and Jordan holding firm in defence.

Lewis broke from midfield to set up Luke to restore Frome's two-goal lead with a thunderbolt and Luke grabbed his second with a good finish from Josh's through ball.

Frome were in total control, with Magor and Finn dominating midfield, Alfie and Ruben dealing comfortably with the rare Dilton attacks and Josh and Luke looking dangerous every time they broke forward.

It was no surprise when a long ball from Ruben saw Luke break into the box and unselfishly lay the ball off to Josh, who had a simple tap in to complete his hat-trick.

Dilton were able to pull a goal back with a long-range effort but Frome had the final word as Luke pounced on a through ball to net his third.

Frome Town U9

Frome Town under-9s' month of away trips continued with matches at Mere Town and Melksham Hurricanes.

Both Frome teams acquitted themselves with credit against good opponents, with the team at Mere working hard in defence and midfield while battling to create scoring chances.

Joe, Solly and Harvey marshalled the defence as Josh, William and Riley pushed up as much as possible to support Fin in attack.

Fin had a great shot on the turn saved before Josh forced the ball home from a fierce corner as Frome finished the match strongly.

At Melksham, great attacking from Harry, Raphael and Cameron, solid defending from Robbie and Jacob and excellent all-round play by George were the highlights.

To round off the day, five players warmed up with the Frome Town senior team ahead of their match against Corby Town and also walked out with them as mascots.
