Frampton had 2 of their biggest games of the season in May, as the curtain came down on another season.
The first crunch game was a league game, away to Olveston United. Both teams went into the game knowing that a win would see them finish second in the table and probably see them promoted to the Premier Division of the Bristol Premier Combination. Frampton went into the game on the back of 3 wins, but it was Olveston who took the spoils of the day, narrowly beating Frampton 4-3. 2 goals from Chris Cavill and one from Ed Brown weren’t enough on the day and a red card for Spencer Davies didn’t help the cause.
That result left Frampton very deflated, but they had to find a way of picking themselves up quickly, as they had the Bristol Premier Combination Cup Final to play for the following week, against Highridge United. Frampton went into the game knowing that they were huge underdogs, but also knowing that anything can happen in a cup final. In the first half, Frampton more than held their own against the higher level opposition and we’re arguably the best team.
However, Frampton’s failure to score a goal in the first half proved vital, as Highridge came out for the second half and very soon found themselves 2-0 ahead. That knocked Frampton’s confidence severely and they ended up losing the game 5-0, which was a score line that didn’t really reflect the match, although Highridge were the better team overall.
Frampton’s Reserve side finished their league season with a 4-4 draw at home to Fry’s Club ‘A’, in order to secure a 4th place finish in their league. It has not yet been decided whether or not that is going to be enough to see them promoted for a 3rd season in a row, although confidence is high.
Whilst the players will get their rest in over the summer, the club are already planning for next season and are working on some very exciting plans which will hopefully take the club to the next level.
These plans will be revealed later in the summer, once everything had been tied up and put into place! But it’s safe to say that there are some exciting times ahead for Frampton Athletic!!!
