Frome Town produced an excellent away performance to earn a 1-1 draw at Stourbridge in the Premier Division of the Evo-Stik Southern League.

Ollie Chenoweth continued his great form in the Frome goal as he produced a stunning save in the third minute to tip over a Paul McCone header from a corner.

Frome took the lead shortly afterwards as Dave Gilroy beat one man and fed the ball to Lewis Powell, who was clipped on the edge of the area.

Powell picked himself up, dusted himself off and produced a great free-kick that screamed into the net.

Powell could have increased Frome’s lead in the 50th minute as he headed over a Gilroy cross, but a minute later Stourbridge were level as a quick break from Luke Benbow saw him feed the ball to Ben Billingham, who struck a low shot into the far corner.

In the 84th minute, a Ben Wood cross found Powell unmarked, but his shot went wide of the goal.

Stourbridge almost won the game in injury-time, but again Chenoweth reacted quickly and Benbow was denied.
